Jessica Carey

Hey, everyone! I’m Jessica, the founder behind The Hook Nook, and I REALLY like to make pretty things. For the last several years I’ve gone from teaching myself to crochet, to selling my makes to friends and family, to opening an Etsy shop, to pattern designing and now I am so fortunate to have worked with some of the biggest brands and companies in the fiber industry from all around the world. You can now find my own The Hook Nook brand designer crochet hooks, yarn and craft accessories at in my online shop and at various retailers!

Fold Over Brim Beanie Crochet Pattern



Fall is approaching as are the days of dreary and gloom weather while sitting inside with a project being created in my lap. One of my favorite accessories in the cool temperatures is a handmade beanie, and the Fold Over Brim Beanie is definitely a must-have for your closet, and now you can find the pattern FREE right here on THNLife Blog! Woot woot!

Not only is this pattern now available at no cost to you, but I have also conveniently curated a crochet kit listing in THNLife Shop so you can order the yarn, PDF pattern, AND a printed/laminated copy of the pattern so you can use your dry erase markers as you take notes while making progress.

Sl St each of the eight “corners” around. Now the top of your hat should be evenly closed, finish off, weave in ends and flip inside out so seam is on inside of beanie.
