Ice Fishing Beanie
Ice Fishing Beanie

There's something so right about the classic pompom crochet beanie, like the Ice Fishing Beanie. Worked in a simple stitch and featuring a classic fold-up ribbing and a little pompom at the very top of the hat, this crochet hat pattern is your classic, everyday winter hat. This is an easy design to work up and since it features bulky-weight yarn, is super warm. There are minimal color changes in this design, but you could also work this in a solid hue or a variegated color to minimize those further. With sizes from newborn through adult, everyone in your family will be begging for one of their very own. 

Notes:
•The hat can be started with a Magic Ring or with the instructions given in Round 1.
•The beginning chain does not count as a stitch.
•Each round is started in the same stitch as your beginning chain.
•The end of each round is joined by slip stitching in the first stitch of the round, not the beginning chain.

This is another crochet pattern that deserves a five-star rating because it shows us how to do different sizes for different ages. Awesome! Thank you. I've always loved the color gray and this one is no exception. I like the medium shade of gray used here. This Ice Fishing Beanie has been carefully crafted that started with a ribbed edge then worked rows and rows of half double crochets from the top down then connected to the ribbed edge of the beanie. The red combo can be done in any other color if you don't like the color red and the pompom can be optional. Thanks for the free pattern.

I really like the look of this Ice Fishing Beanie. After reading the patterns I think it will go quickly and will be easy to make. I like the colors picked and I know my hubby will appreciate the warmth of the bulky yarn. I like having the pattern for different sizes right here, taking the guess work out of it. I have a basket of winter hats for whom ever may need one and I'll be adding a few of these to that basket. Thank you so much for this free crochet pattern.

This is one of the easiest patterns I have ever read. And it is so handsome. I can make it up in a matter of hours. I have three grand sons that will like them and I know they will look good in them. I have plenty of yarn so all I need to do is sit down and do it. Thank you for sharing this.
