Sometimes you just want a quick make, and you can’t get much quicker than a crochet hat or beanie worked up with nice, chunky yarn.

All of these hats use either chunky (#5) or super chunky (#6) yarn so they can be whipped up in no time. So, whether you need a last minute gift or simply want to pat yourself on the back for finishing a project in couple of hours (or less), then these hats will do the trick!

For each of the projects below, I list the pattern format as well as the recommended yarn. This allows you to see at a glance what you might be able to use from your stash.


Caspia Chunky Beanie by Tahryn @ Burgandy & Blush

This simple beanie is made in one flat rectangle piece with just one stitch, joining the sides to form the hat at the end.

(And there is a matching cowl pattern available too!)

Pattern Format: Written

Pattern Size: Adult

Suggested Yarn: WI Soft & Chunky


Backcountry Beanie by Crystal @ ChristaCoDesign

There’s something so relaxing about working on a hat that doesn’t need increases or decreases, just rows of stitches. Not only is this beanie relaxing to work on but it also grows quickly due to the chunky yarn. Which has the added benefit of being warm and cozy!
