Indeed, we all need that simple yet warm beanie for the slight chill starting to arrive. I love Autumn, the colours really inspire my crochet. My creativity really ignites when the Fall arrives, and I have so many projects I would like to share with you.
As always, the video tutorial is up on my Youtube channel if you follow this link: Crochet Ribbed Beanie Video Tutorial
Crocheting in the Autumn is such a joy
As I previously said, crocheting in the Autumn is such a joy for me. I love snuggling under a warm (crochet) blanket, a warm tea by my side, and my crochet in my hands. The weather here in the UK has been very up and down all through Summer, as well as the beginning of September. One day it’s freezing, the next is really warm, and so it’s hard to dress and accessorise in those moments.
I know I find a big inspiration difference depending on the Season. Now it’s September, all I want to crochet are warm and cosy makes. I am crocheting scarfs, fluffy jumpers and blankets, and I love it! What do you like to crochet during this season? Let me know in the comments, I love connecting with you.
Crochet Feminine Easy Ribbed Beanie: the inspiration
So the inspiration behind this cute and feminine beanie comes from the TV show The Walking Dead. I don’t watch a lot of TV, except for period dramas and The Walking Dead. The character Beth Greene is seen in season 3 wearing a very simple, cream beanie. I knew when I saw it that I wanted that same beanie! Luckily, it was very easy to reproduce.
It’s a very simple design, created by rows of ribbed Half Double Crochets. My tutorial and pattern takes you through all the steps very clearly. It’s very easy to assemble once it’s crocheted, and has a slightly slouchy vibe to it. I love this pattern so much!
Let me know if you love it as much as me. I know I love it and am going to have a lot of wear out of it.

A tapestry needle
A pair of scissors

10 cm:14 HDC
10 cm: 9 rows
Size of finished project (before sewing) : 23 cm x 46 cm (9””x18”)
Complete rows as follows:
1: HDC in 3rd ch from hook (first 2 ch counts as a HDC), HDC into each ch until EOR.

Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing your hat up.
Sew up your hat:
Place your hat on the wrong side. Fold it in half, and start sewing your side seam using the mattress stitch. Once you reach the top of the seam, you will start sewing up the crown of the hat. For this, you will simply pop your tapestry needle in and out of the crown of the hat, at about an inch interval each time. Once you reach the other side, pull on your yarn gently so as to close you hat up.
Make two knots to secure your stitches, fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
