Making of my woolly beanie hat


I didn’t learn to knit so that I needed a simple, easy and playful way to knit this woolly hat. I found this tutorial that permit to make a woolly beanie hat with a round knitting loom. It sounded me simple for a beginner and I must admit, that it is very well explained, step by step with sentences that come on the screen to complete the video.



I gone in search for round looms. I found some at reasonable price on the online shop Butinette, a set of 4 looms of different diameters (Ø 13 cm, 18 cm, 23 cm, 28 cm). They are delivered with a crochet and a plastic needle for wools. I specify that the pegs of the looms have a notch on the front to put the crochet and to catch the wool without separating its threads. Very convenient.


I chose a soft dark grey wool Online Linie 55 Montego (knitting needle size 6-7) in the same shop.

I followed her instructions of measurement to have a long hat that have a friendly sprite look. And here it is! After 2 little afternoons (it can be shorter, but it’s not so bad for a beginner, no?), I finally have my soft and hot woolen hat.

Material needed :

  • Round knitting loom of diameter 29 cm
  • Wool for knitting needles 6-7
  • Crochet
  • Needle for wool

Steps of the video tutorial:

  • Brim of the hat
  • The 2 different alternated knots to give the hat its texture
  • Closing the hat







I decided for my part to add a pompom. To do that, nothing’s more easy. I think that everyone already done that when we were child but let’s refresh our memory. The tutorial is available HERE.
