This Chevron Beanie is super cute and is so quick to work up! You could easily complete a hat or two in an evening!
This darling Chevron Beanie would be a great scrap buster project to help use up those small amounts of yarn you just can’t bring yourself to get rid of!
As you can see the Brim of the hat does not go all the way around the back of the hat which makes it much less bulky! Another great feature of this hat is that there is no reducing to close the hat! That’s right! Your nightmares of reducing are over (well as least when you make this hat)
Don’t forget to show this pattern a little ‘Love’ by adding it pattern to your Raverly library! You can also purchase an ad free PDF in HERE my Raverly store. And don’t forget to link your completed hat in Raverly for others to see!

1. The Band of the hat can be made a wide or narrow as you like.
2. The pattern is written for the Large size; the Medium, Small and Child size is written inside the ()
3. Hat is worked in multiples of 8, if you want a big slouchy hat you will squeeze your SC together, if you want a more fitted hat you will want to space them out a bit more (but always in multiples of 8 stitches).
4. You will only turn your work when working the Band
5. If you chose to change colors you will do so while working the BPsl st (see Special Stitches), pick up the color change on the YO and pull through loop
Base Chain – CH12, (12, 10, 8)
R1. HDC in second from hook, HDC across. CH1, turn. 11HDC (11, 9, 7)
R2. BLo HDC across. CH1, turn. 11BLo HDC (11, 9, 7)
Repeat R2 until have 36 rows (34, 32, 30)
R3. SC in first st, CH1, turn
Repeat R3 until you have a total Band length is 18 1/2 inches (18, 17 1/2, 16 1/2)
Once you have the total length, turn, (don’t CH1) insert hook into both loops of the last worked SC and into the Base CH, YO and pull through loop.
R4. CH1, working in end of rows work 72 SC (72, 64, 56) evenly around. Finish off, Invisible Join.
R1. Join in any SC (I recommend joining in the back of the hat), CH1, SC *HDC, DC (MDC, CH2, MDC) in same st, DC, HDC, SC in next 3 sts; repeat from * around, SC in last 2 sts. Join with sl st in next st
R2. BPsl st around next st, CH1, BPDC around same and next 2 sts, (DC, CH2, DC) in CH2 sp, BPDC around next 3 sts, *Ch1, sk next 3 sts, BPDC aroudn next 3 sts, (DC, CH2, DC) in CH2 sp, BPDC around next 3 sts, CH1, sk next 3 sts; repeat from * around. Join with sl st in first st.
Repeat R2, (changing colors as desired) until you have 8 inches of Chevron (7 1/2, 7, 6). Finish off leaving long tail to close hat.
Joining/Closing of Hat:
Sl st in each of the next 3 BP DC, pull up a loop in the CH2 sp, continue to pull up a loop in each of the CH2 sps around. YO and pull through all loops. Finish off.
