You guys – you all know I love to crochet, but crochet projects usually just take. so. long. Sometimes I just want to sit down and make something quickly! Know what I mean?
This easy chunky crochet beanie is the answer! I set out to create a pattern that could be completed in less than thirty minutes, and I did it with this fun hat.
And – really – it is possible to completely create this hat in 30 minutes. I know this because I timed myself. 😂 I mean, everyone crochets at different speeds, so it’s possible that it may take you a bit longer than 30 minutes, but I just want to assure you it can be done!
Super chunky yarn and a ridiculously huge hook are what make this hat go so quickly. Guys. It only has seven rounds. Seven. The whole hat! Kind of crazy, right? But also kind of perfect, especially for last minute holiday gifts! Ready to make some super easy, super quick hats? Let’s do this!
Easy Chunky Crochet Beanie Supplies:
- Bernat Mega Bulky in Light Grey Heather or other #6 Super Bulky Yarn (I would say Bernat Mega Bulky is on the heavy end of the #6 designation. I have seen this yarn labeled as both a 6 and 7 weight, but it is closer to other sixes in my opinion. You will need at least 10 oz for one hat and pom pom. The 10.5 oz ball of Bernat Mega Bulky is just enough.)
- Size S (19.00 mm) Crochet Hook or Size Q (16.00 mm hook)

This pattern uses American crochet terms.
Note on Hook Size: I used a S (19.00 mm) hook for the hat pictured, and it is designed to be a bit oversized. It fits on the brim fairly snugly, but the style is a bit loose and slouchy. For a tighter, less slouchy fit, use a Q (16.00 mm) hook.
UPDATE: I have added a video tutorial for this pattern! You can watch it on my youtube channel here (I would love if you subscribed!) or just scroll to the end of this post. In the video, you can see the different styles you can get using the two crochet hooks. 🙂
Round 1: Starting with a magic loop, work a ch 3 (counts as first dc) and 11 dcs in magic loop. Pull end to tighten loop, and slip stitch to 3rd ch of starting ch 3 to join (12 dcs).
Round 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in same st, 2 dc in each st around, slip st to join (24 dcs).
Rounds 3 – 5: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in each st around, slip st to join (24 dcs).
Rounds 6-7: Work in back loops only, ch 1, sc in same st, sc in each st around, slip st to join (24 scs). Finish off. Weave in ends.
To finish off you hat, make a large fluffy pom pom. I used one of the fun animal pom pom makers I picked up at Target, but you can also just use your fingers if you don’t have a pom pom maker. Trim your pom pom down to give it a nice round shape, but leave two long tails to help you attach it to the hat.
Use the long tails to tie the pom pom to the top of the hat, and then weave in the tails with your hook (this yarn is a bit too thick for a yarn needle) and trim off the excess.
And that’s it! Your hat is already to wear or gift!
