Chunky Beanie – Free Pattern and Video Tutorial

It’s snowing! Now that I’m not in the teaching world anymore, I don’t really get snow days. However, whenever it snows I’m extra motivated to crochet! I was at a friend’s house the other night and she requested a chunky beanie. I had a bunch of different colors of chunky yarn that I had been wondering what to do with, so I decided to sit down and come up with a simple pattern and tutorial for absolute beginners.

Free crochet pattern - chunky beanie video tutorial and written pattern. Tutorial is perfect for beginner crocheters of all ages.

I plan to add faux fur pom-poms to the tops, but the beanie itself is super simple to show off the chunky texture of the yarn.
