Adaleigh Beanie – Free Crochet Pattern

Have you been wanting try out a crochet cable hat pattern, but cables seem too intimidating? Look no further! This beanie pattern uses a simple cable texture, without being so overwhelming with only post stitches.

I designed this beanie after finding a pack of faux fur pom poms that included a pink/purple/blue pom on Amazon. I knew immediately that I had to make something for my daughter. I’m a fan of simple stitch patterns, but I definitely wanted to make something a bit more on the fancy side for her.

This crochet cable hat pattern is a more intermediate crochet pattern, but can be a good introduction to cables for a confident beginner! If you get stuck, you can find a video tutorial for the adult size beanie pattern below. You can check out my other crochet hat patterns here.

I have used a variety of yarns to make this crochet cable hat pattern, including Caron Simply Soft, Red Heart Super Saver, WeCrochet Brava Worsted, WeCrochet Mighty Stitch, and probably a few others that I can’t think of right now! You can use any worsted weight yarn for this pattern. I personally love how the crochet cables really pop with the use of lighter colors.


I hope you enjoy this free crochet pattern (adult size) available here on my blog! An ad-free, formatted PDF version of this crochet pattern is also available for purchase using the buttons below. The PDF includes the full range of sizes including 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, toddler, child, teen, and adult.
