The Camel Stitch Crochet Beanie is such a great design, not only because of the awesome stitch, but also because it comes with 3 brim options!

You can make this hat with a ribbed brim, as shown above, a front post brim, or a bonnet style brim with tassels!

The camel stitch is also a really fun, textured stitch to use that works up fairly quick!

Be sure to check out my tutorial on how to do the Camel Stitch!

  1. Hello I have completed this pattern a couple times and I’ve noticed that making the brim with 76 rows fits me as an adult and I can’t see how I would adjust for a toddler size. It also fits my sister who has a larger heads Circumference than me

    1. Go down a couple of hook sizes for the brim and then go back up to the hook you meet gauge with for the rest of the hat.
