You will need to understand the front post and back post crochet technique, both in a double crochet and the slip stitch, in order to create this sweet basket weave stitch beanie. There are lots of video tutorials that can be found on YouTube for your convenience! Pretty blue color looks like something "Frozen". -)

I've made a lot of beanies in different colors and sizes but I haven't made this Breakout the Basketweave Hat. Nevertheless the beanie is so far the easiest and faster hat to make so it's very popular. They style suits both males and females and it suits any age group.

Winter will be here soon. This basket weave hat looks like it would be a very warm hat and would keep your head toasty warm when you are outside in the cold. This is a cute hat and it would be a great and quick project to learn and practice a new stitch.
