St. Patrick’s Day Beanie Hat | Free Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner!  Whip up this St. Patrick’s Day beanie hat for your kiddos (or size it up for adults) so you can avoid anyone pinching you!

Spring is in the air around here, so I made this with cotton yarn so it’s warm but not too warm.  If it’s colder where you’re at I’m sure acrylic yarn would work too and it would give the hat a little more stretch.

St. Patrick’s Day Beanie Hat Pattern

St. Patrick's Day Crochet Beanie Hat

5.00 mm crochet hook for hat

4.00 mm crochet hook for four-leaf clover applique

I used I Love This Yarn Cotton in Bright Green for the top part and brim, Pistache for the stripe, Lime Ombre for the four-leaf clover applique

I started with Bright Green and followed the beanie pattern by Amy from Another Mum Fights The Dust through row 9.  She has different sizes and you can pick whichever size you think is best. 

I used the 3-6 year old pattern to fit my son and since I used cotton yarn it’s a snug fit but he likes it.  Just remember cotton yarn doesn’t stretch like acrylic and choose accordingly.

Row 10 – 12. Ch 2, dc in same st and each st around, sl st to first st to join.  At the end of row 12, change to Pistache when you sl st to join.

Row 13 – 14. Ch 2, dc in same st and each st around, sl st to first st to join.  At the end of row 14, change to Bright Green when you sl st to join.


Row 1. Ch 10, turn an sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across, then sl st into the next 2 sts on edge of hat, turn.

Row 2. Sc in back loop only across 9 sts, ch 1, turn.

Row 3. Sc in back loop only across 9 sts, sl st into next 2 sts on edge of hat, turn.

Repeat rows 2 & 3 of brim until you’ve gone all the way around the edge of the hat.  The number of rows will depend on what size you made the hat.

Slip stitch the brim together working in the back loops.  Make sure your slip stitches aren’t too tight.  Finish off.

(If this part is confusing, I explain it a little more plus I link to a very helpful video here.)


With Lime Ombre and 4.00 mm hook, make a magic loop.

(Ch 3, tr, dc, tr, ch 3). Repeat 3 more times in loop.  Ch 5, hdc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 3 ch, sl st to center of magic loop, pull loop tight.  Finish off.

Sew your four-leaf clover applique to the beanie, I put it on the stripe for contrast.
