How to Crochet: Lightweight Granny Stitch Hat | Lightweight Grace Tinley Beanie | Cre8tion Crochet

This Grace Tinley Beanie is an easy crochet pattern worked in mostly simple double crochets, with some single crochets for the edging. This design features lightweight yarn, and 7 sizes from Newborn through Adult Large.

I designed this for this year’s Crochet Cancer Challenge hosted by Christine from Sweet Potato 3. It’s a beautiful charity event where each day in the month of October, you can download a different free crochet pattern, and each download = 1 pledge for making and donating a hat using that pattern.

Please visit with Christine at Sweet Potato 3 to get all the details for this Crochet Cancer Challenge, download free printable tags for your beanies, and get the schedule for each free pattern:

So, while my yarn may look more pink in certain lighting, and more purple in others, I picked this Emma’s Yarn Comfy Cotton DK out of my stash for this beanie because it is such a lovely yarn to work with. It is a 50/50 blend of Superwash Merino Wool and Cotton. It’s lightweight, soft and squishy with great stitch definition, not itchy and it’s durable. Being a Superwash Wool, it can easily be machine washed if needed without worry of it felting. All these things make it an excellent choice for gifting and/or donating. This yarn is hand dyed at my local yarn shop, Four Purls – they knock it out of the park!

You’ll need 60 (75, 85, 105, 115, 145, 185) Yards of a Lightweight 3 Yarn – I’m using one of my favorites, Emma’s Yarn Comfy Cotton DK in Very Berry, an H8/5mm Crochet Hook, Tapestry Needle and Soft Tape Measure.

Time Spent:

Pattern Note:
If you are a tight crocheter, you may want to work the granny stitch pattern and single crochet round/s in an I9/5.5mm crochet hook to help keep it looser so there is no restriction in the final beanie.
