Super Quick Pom Pom Beanie – Free Pattern

This pom pom beanie is 2 of my favourite things when it comes to crochet – quick and easy! Give me anything that I can make in one evening that doesn’t require too much thinking!

So here’s the super quick pattern for a super quick make!

You will need :

1 Skein Caron Simply Soft in Soft Pink

5mm hook


Darning needle

9cm pom pom maker


4″x4″ = 16st over 4 rows


Ch = Chain

St = Stitch

Dcblo = Double crochet in the back loop / UK Treble Crochet in back loop

Fo = Fasten Off


Method : –

With Soft Pink and 5 mm hook ch 45

Row 1. 1 dc in 4th ch from hook and each ch along (42)

Row 2. Ch 3 (counts as 1st st here and throughout) 1 dcblo in each dc across (42) turn

Repeat row 2 until piece fits around your head! The circumference of my head measures 21″ so to make the hat fit snuggly I crocheted for 17″ which was 32 rows.

FO and weave in ends.

Fold in half so the ribbing is vertical and whip stitch the sides together

Looks lovely doesn’t it?!

Make a running stitch in the top of the hat and pull tightly to close. I did mine in a different colour so you can see.


Fold the bottom up

Make a Pom Pom and attach it to the top.



Not only is your beanie quick and easy to make it also comes in at well under a fiver! I paid £5 for my Caron Simple Soft yarn and had loads left to make something else. Bargain!

I love yarn that you can pull straight from the middle

The pic above shows how much yarn I had left after making my beanie. I reckon you could even make 2..

Before I leave I thought I would mention that in the next coming weeks I will be posting a CAL Stitchionary blanket. Intrigued? Subscribe and stick around for the 1st part coming in the new year
