How puff stitch hat is crocheted?
To crochet a beanie hat, you start by crocheting a long thin rectangle using the slip stitch or any other ribbing in the length of the circumference of the hat. This will be the ribbing.
Then, you attach the ends together using a joining technique. Then you work around that ribbing using the puff stitch throughout or alternating with other stitches.
First, you keep the stitches consistent while increasing height and then start decreasing them to get the dome shape of the top. In this way, you work from the bottom top. When you reach the top, you will sew the small hole, and your beanie will be ready.
