Hat Not Hate is a project that means a lot to me. I have loads of respect for the team organizing this and bringing awareness to such a meaningful cause. I want to do my part to support them as best I can so here is a quick pattern so you too can participate!

I promise you that this is the easiest hat you will ever make. Here we go!


  • U.S. size 3.50mm hook
  • 1 Skein Fine Weight Baby Yarn – I used this one
  • Measuring tape
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • You can find all of these goodies at partners…
JOANN Stores


Unstretched & before brim is folded up 10″wide x 15″long


ch= chain

sts= stitches

BLO = back loop only

HDC: Half double crochet

Pattern Notes:

This pattern creates a simple ribbed rectangle that we will then sew together to shape into a beanie. You can adjust the sizing of the had by increasing/decreasing the initial ch to aline with the sizing dimensions below.

We’ve written the pattern to fit to Child – Teen/Small Adult. The ribbing allows for the sizing to flex fairly easily between sizing.


Ch 51

row 1. HDC in 2nd ch from hook across, ch 1, turn (50 hdc)

row 2. HDC in (BLO) in each hdc across, ch 1, turn (50 hdc)

Repeat row 2 until length, laid flat (no not stretch) measures 15in.

Almost there!


Step 1: Fold the rectangle in half, sew along both edges to form a tube.

Step 2: Weave yarn through the very top edge. Pull tight to close up the top of the hat.

Step 3. Fold up brim of the hat.

Here’s a quick video that walks you through it!
