Today I am spotlighting Crochet Camo Beanies that I really enjoyed making. I know you’re probably saying “beanies aren’t that exciting” and that may be true, however, these were very special beanies because I was making them for a little family that I love very dearly!
I have mentioned my daughter Aimee many times. She is my primary “target” for my own personal yarn bombing. Well Aimee’s best friend for many, many years is also named Amy. Back when they were in school together they were inseparable and were collectively just called “The Amys”. Now I hope I don’t lose anyone here – at Christmas Aimee told me that Amy really liked messy bun style hats. I said eww, but I decided to make her one. I’m not a fan of the messy bun hat.
So wait – this isn’t a messy bun hat – not even close. That is correct. Amy, who is like an extra daughter to me, has an ADORABLE little family. Her husband loves the outdoors and I thought – hey I’m going to make hats for everybody! So dad and the boys all got these nice warm camo beanies. Amy’s messy bun hat will be a future blog post once she sends me some pictures modeling it.
Crochet Project Notes – Camo Beanie Hat
- For these hats I used Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo medium weight yarn (4) in color Camouflage. I used Red Heart Super Saver medium weight (4) in color Pumpkin for the pom poms on the boys’ hats.
- I used a size I/9 5.25mm hook
The Jumbo skein of yarn was huge – I was able to make all three hats with just one skein!

I watch BobWilson tutorials a lot. She does an excellent job demonstrating and explaining the stitches and patterns. This is a beginner friendly hat. As long as you know how to stitch in “back loop only” you can make this hat. If you don’t know how to do that stitch she explains and demonstrates where you need to place your hook. I really like that she included a chart with standard head sizes. I’ve made so many hats you would think that I have that memorized but I need a little reminder now and then.
I finished these hats last week but didn’t post them because they were a surprise, plus I wanted to include photos of her too cute family wearing them! She received the hat package today and they loved the hats! 😀
Thanks for reading!
