I love this beanie because it’s super quick to work up and nice and thick (hence the name lol). You use three strands of yarn and a super big hook for this hat, and can add a pom pom on top if you wish (I do on all of my team beanies, I love pom poms :3)
Worsted weight (4) yarn in your favorite team colors (use three strands of yarn to achieve the right tension in your stitches)
Pom-pom maker (optional)
Ch – chain
St – stitch
Rnd(s) – round(s)
Hdc – half double crochet
Sc- single crochet
Sl st – slip stitch
Ch 1 at the beginning of each rnd counts as first st.
Rnd 1 – 8 hdc in a magic circle (8 hdc)
Rnd 2 – Ch 1, hdc in same st. 2 hdc in each st around (16 hdc)
Rnd 3 – Ch 1, 2 hdc in next st. *hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st* repeat from * to * 7x (24 hdc)
Rnd 4 – Ch 1, hdc in next st. *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 2 st*. Repeat * to * 7x. 2 hdc in last st. (32 hdc)
Rnd 5 – Ch 1, hdc in next 2 st. *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 3 st*. Repeat * to * 7x. 2 hdc in last st. (40 hdc)
Rnd 6 – Ch 1, hdc in each st around. (40 hdc)
Rnds 7-11 – repeat rnd 6.
Rnd 12 – Ch 1, sc in back loop only all the way around (40 sc).
Rnds 13-14 – repeat rnd 12. Fasten off and weave in ends.
And there you have it! I told you it was super easy! You can also have one color and still use the three strands to make a nice thick beanie.
I recently purchased this pom pom maker and used the biggest one to make the pom pom on the Broncos beanie (pictured at the top). I made the Chargers and Panthers beanies (pictured below) before I got the pom pom maker and just did those by hand, they still turned out great!
