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)
You could instead use three strands of Red Heart Team Spirit Yarn!
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!
