What is the common fabric found in everyone’s wardrobe? The answer is blue jeans or denim!
You’ll find that everyone has at least one pair of jeans or a denim jacket. A comfortable wear that everyone prefers in their daily lives. But to become an important apparel for us denim went through a long journey.
Previously, it was manufactured for labourers only. The raw and fading look of the material made it suitable for any rough work. Slowly, it gained popularity; and now it is consumed in all kinds of clothing and accessories in the fashion world. Even we have furniture draped in Denin to give a contemporary look. They are repurposed too; such as strips of old jeans that can be recycled to make rugs, patched work bed sheets, the mobile holder at charging station.
When I purchased Vardhaman wool, the texture gave me a denim look. I decided to name this beanie as RIBBEDENIM ( Ribbed + Denim).
I have created this simple pattern of Half-Double Crochet (HDC) stitches for the base and body, and Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) for the brim or edging. It is a child size beanie.

R2: Ch 2, 2 HDC on each HDC. Total 20 HDC.

Repeat R3 to make the brim of 1.5″.

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.
- You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
- You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pompom.
- You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give a more feminine touch.
- The edging can be made of Single Crochet (SC), Crab Stitch, Slip Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC).
Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
