This bun beanie works up quite fast. Once you understand the pearl stitch I used, it’s very easy as well.

Pearl stitch:
Watch my video tutorial: pearl stitch tutorial

Crochet dc
(Yarn over, place your hook behind the dc and pull up the yarn to the front)
Repeat twice.

Yarn over.
Pull the yarn through the first 6 loops on your chain.
Yarn over.
Pull through the remaining 2 loops.


Dk weight yarn.
Hook size 5,5 mm

I used the yarn shown in the picture. It says it’s meant for needle 4 – 4,5.
10 cm = 8 pearl stitches (so 8 pearl stitches and 8 stitches skipped)

The circumference of my hat is about 50 cm = 19,68 inches

If you want to adjust the pattern to other yarn, you have to make sure the number of stitches is dividable by 2.

Chain 30 and close to form a ring.
video: how to close a chain to a ring without twisting

Watch this video tutorial (turn on subtitles): video tutorial round 2-6
Each round is closed with a sl st in the first st of that round.
I will be increasing in rounds 3, 5 and 7. When you think the circumference is big enough for your beanie, you can stop the increasing sooner. After that you just continue with rounds of dc, and rounds of pearl stitches, until you reach the desired length for your beanie.
Note: until you stop the increasing, the beanie looks flat, not beanie-like. Once you crochet a few rounds after you stopped increasing, it start to look like a hat.
