Yarn: Re​d Heart with Love, Red Heart Soft, Caron Simply Soft (​only use SOFT yarn for these beanies so they will be comfortable enough for tender scalps to wear)

Hook: 5.5​0 mm (depending on the thickness of the yarn and the tension in your crochet stitches, you may find you will need to use a J hook or an H hook to get the right tension in your stitches)

Gauge: 3 s​ts per inch / 2.75 rounds per inch

R1: 8 HDC in adjustable loop (8) (Alternative loop: CH 2, sl st together, then 8 HDC in center – Helps to put crochet marker over chains to find center)

R2: 2 HDC in each ST around (16)

R3: *2 HDC in 1st, 1 HDC in next st*, repeat from *to* (24)

R4: *2 HDC in 1st st, 1 HDC in each of the next 2 sts*, repeat from *to* (32)

R5: *2 HDC in 1st st, 1 HDC in each of the next 3 sts*, repeat from *to* (40)

R6: *2 HDC in 1st st, 1 HDC in each of the next 4 sts*, repeaet from *to* (48)

R7: *2 HDC in 1st st, 1 HDC in each of the next 5 sts*, repeat from *to* (56)

R8: *2 HDC in 1st st, 1 HDC in each of the next 6 sts*, repeat from *to* (64)

Continue HDC until beanie is desired length (appx. to row 22)

Finished beanie, when lying flat, should measure 6.5in-7.5in from crown to brim (depending on Beanie Type, see below)), and 8in-8.5in across the brim. When using thicker yarn or if your stitches are looser, alter pattern R8: (2 HDC in 1st st, 1 HDC in the next 10 sts), repeat from *to* (60) to ensure the finished measurements are met.
