This double brim knit-look beanie is the third of four hats being highlighted in my “All the Double Brim Hats” series. You can find the others here:
- Keystone Ribbed Hat
- Breckenridge Double Brim Beanie
- Aspen Knit Look Beanie
- Vail Slouch Hat
I fell in love with the waistcoat or center single crochet stitch when I was working on designing the Polly Reversible Beanie and I just HAD to make a double brim version! This double brim knit-look beanie is just what I’d been looking for but hadn’t been able to find in just the shape and look I was wanting.
This hat is designed to highlight the double brim with contrasting color and to carry just the right amount of slouch. I’m super picky about my slouchies! How about you?
Designed to be work in the slouchy pompom version, this hat can also be worn with the brim turned up….Santa style!

Make Your Double Brim Knit-Look Beanie
With 9.00 mm (M/N) hook
With CC and working loosely, chain 40. Join with a SLST to beginning CH.
RND 1: Ch1, (continue to work loosely throughout) SC into the same stitch as beginning CH1 and each chain around. Join with a tight SLST to beginning CH1 (see photo below). 40 STS
RND 2: CH1, (working the waistcoat stitch – into the SC from the row below, not into the front and back loops), SC in the first stitch and each stitch around. Join with a SLST to beginning CH1. 40 STS
As you’re working round 2, it will begin looking like this.
All of your SC stitches from round 2 forward will be waistcoat SC.
RND 3 – 10: repeat round 2
RND 11: (switch to MC) CH1, SC in first stitch and each stitch around. Join with a SLST to beginning CH1. 40 STS
RND 12: CH1, SC in first stitch and each stitch around. Join with a SLST to beginning CH1. 40 STS
RNDS 13 – 20: repeat round 12
RND 21: With the right side of the hat facing you, fold CC portion of the hat up so that it matches the MC portion.
CH1, sew the brim closed by working a waistcoat SC in each stitch around, matching SC stitches with unworked loops of foundation chain stitches. Do not join. 40 STS
RND 22: Add a stitch marker to the last stitch created. You’ll begin working in a continuous spiral now. SC in first stitch and each stitch around. 40 STS
RND 23 – 44: repeat round 22
RND 45: *SC in each of the next 4 STS, decrease SC across the next 2 STS,* repeat from * to * 5 more times. SC in the last 4 stitches. 34 STS
RND 46: *SC in each of the next 3 STS, decrease SC across the next 2 STS,* repeat from * to * 5 more times. SC in the last 4 stitches. 28 STS
