H.O.P.E. Beanies

Happy New Year 2017! My first post of the year and I wanted to share my favorite beanie pattern with you. I use this pattern to make lots of beanies during holidays to gift and donate and these come out perfect every time. 
This is a quick beginner pattern that can be done in an evening and a stash buster. These beanies make great gifts, you can make them with one color, two colors or multi colored yarn, really any worsted weight yarn that you have in your stash.

  • Hook: I (5.50mm )
  • Yarn: worsted weight yarn 
    • 1 ball around 3.5 oz. in color A of your choice (For 1 color beanie)
    • 2 different colors  Color A & Color B or self striping yarn for multi colored beanie. 
  • Stitch Marker
Work in a continuous round, you will not join or turn. 
Use a stitch marker to keep track of your rows.
For beanies with two colors:
Change colors with every round beginning Round 8 and continue on with single color at the end Round 21-24
Some of the yarns that I have used are: Loops & Threads Impeccable, Plymouth Encore, Knit Picks Brava Worsted & Lion's Brand Vanna's Choice
Hdc - Half double Crochet
Sc - Single Crochet
St - Stitches
With I hook, make a Magic Circle with color A
Round 1: 8 Hdc in magic circle. Do not join. (8 Sts)
Slip marker at the beginning of the round
Round 2: 2 Hdc in first St from Round 1 and in each stich around (16 Sts)
Round 3: (2 Hdc in next St; 1 Hdc in next) around (24 Sts)
Round 4: (2 Hdc in next St; 1 Hdc in each of the next 2 St) around (32 Sts)
Round 5: (2 Hdc in next St; 1 Hdc in each of the next 3 St) around (40 Sts)
Round 6: (2 Hdc in next St; 1 Hdc in each of the next 4 St) around (48 Sts)
Round 7: (2 Hdc in next St; 1 Hdc in each of the next 5 St) around (56 Sts)
(Start changing colors for each round if you are using 2 colors.)
Rounds 8-20: 1 Hdc in each St around (56 Sts)
(Go back to 1 color only if you are using 2 colors)
Rounds 21-24: 1 Sc in each St around (56 Sts)

Fasten off and weave in ends.
