The Maggie Beanie: Free Easy Crochet Pattern

So lately I’ve been a little obsessed with Downton Abbey.. please please tell me I’m not alone… I love the Dowager Countess and I think Maggie Smith is perfect for her role. I started this hat while watching her in Downton Abbey and finished it watching Hook, where to my surprise Maggie Smith plays Wendy. This hat was practically begging to be named Maggie.

I crocheted this hat using Lion Brand’s Wool Ease Thick & Quick…. my absolute favorite super bully yarn. Its soft, light and cozy… just like this hat (see what i did there ?). Perfect for those chilly winter days!

      Hi Jo, this hat is worked in the round from the top down starting with a magic circle (you can find a tutorial HERE ) If you wanted you could chain 3 or 4 and join them with a slip stitch to form a ring and work your stitches from round 1 in that ring. If you are unfamiliar with working in the round all together I highly receomment checking out this post by Brittany from BHooked: The Ultimate Guide to Crocheting in the Round Let me know if you have any more questions!
