You’ll Always Be In My Heart Beanie

Well folks, it’s closing in on Christmas. Can you believe it is only a few weeks away?

That means now is the perfect time to share my latest crochet beanie hat pattern!

It’s called the You’ll Always Be In My Heart Beanie and it’s perfect for gift giving this holiday!

*This post may have affiliate links. See my full Disclosure Policy for details.

I designed it with little hearts all the way around it – such a sweet way to say “I love you”.

Which is one of the things that makes it perfect for holiday gift giving!

Is there a better way to show your affection then by crocheting up a gift covered in hearts and putting it under the Christmas tree or in someone’s stocking?

Yarn Details: It’s all about the yarn baby!

The the fabulous thing about this pattern is that it is a great stash buster!

It requires less than a skein of yarn and just a few yards of color to create such a memorable beanie for someone you love.

I’ve now made three of them1

I picked Red Heart Super Saver in White, Royal, and Bright Yellow and Red Heart With Love in Hollyberry for my three beanies because I had an ample supply of them in my yarn stash (affiliate links).

In truth, you can use any medium 4 worsted weight yarn, but I do like Red Heart brand because it has a wide array of colors and it doesn’t hit your pocket book hard!

You get a lot per skein and at such a reasonable price too!

However, if you are looking for something a bit softer, you could always check out KnitPicks/We Crochet Wool of the Andes as an alternative.

It’s a great inexpensive yarn that comes in loads of colors – making it perfect for a variety of projects!

FINISHING:

  • Insert the yarn needle – attached to the long yarn tail – into the top edge of the hat.  Push the edge of the hat along the tapestry needle so that the top cinches up.  You may have to push the needle out and re-insert it several times. 
  • Once the top rim of the beanie has been cinched up, use the yarn attached to the tapestry needle to seal up any remaining hole.
  • Use the yarn tail to attach the beanie.
