To Celebrate our Amazing Grace Crochet Charity Drive… Here is my 9th Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern!!

Keeping in the style of the Amazing Grace Stitch Pattern… This hat has added texture and is fun to make using more than one color… The Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern Series is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and my dearest friend Sandra Kay Gilb who passed away in 2007 from this unfortunate disease.  Please consider paying it forward to those who are suffering or recovering from Cancer or any life tragedy! 

Amazing Grace Blissful Beanie


Yarn ~ 125-150 yards Worsted Weight Yarn (Pictured above in Brown and Cream is Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand Yarn)

Shop for your yarn needs at Michaels Craft Store Online!! Affiliate Link

Although all worsted weight yarn is  graded to be a #4, there is variance between brands… I found Red Heart With Love and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice to be a great weight for this hat and  also soft.  Caron Simply Soft was wonderful for the softness, but made the hat slightly smaller.

  1. Another home run!! Will get started on donations as soon as my WIP is done, THANK YOU!

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      Thank You!!

      • Thank You So Much for your Lovely pattern. plan on making a few for Charity 🙂
        It was easy to fallow and always like when the designer adds the number of stitches that should be in the round/row it’s a lovey hat I added a brim to the one I”ve made so far, in dark purple and shades of purple.
        Thank You Again and Blessings Always.

    • Love the pattern, but I want to use a much thicker yarn requiring a usL11 hook. Any advice on how I would reduce the pattern in order to achieve the proper size?
      Thanks so much!

  2. Hi, thanks for the great pattern! I am stuck on row 15. What does Sl St in 1st Ch 2 Sp mean? And later in the same row, 3 Dc in the next Ch 2 Sp… Thanks!

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      When you start row 15, you work a slip stitch in the first chain two space you made in row 14 and the 3 dc shells are also being worked in the previous rows chain 2 spaces.

  3. Wonderful hat. I am going out to buy the Red Heart with Love you suggested and try to make my first hat.
    Wish me Luck.

  4. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful patterns!! I make and donate many items to the two cancer centers in my area. As both my parents have dealt with cancer, I donate items in their names. Thanks again for ALL of your patterns!

  5. Thanks so much for these patterns. Ijust completed the one above adjusting the size for a kid. I am a volunteer in an institution that works with very poor children who live in far away towns in Mexico where treatment is not available. The pattern is easy to follow and adjust for different sizes, so I will continue to use it in different colors and combinations to donate to these kids. Keep on your great work.

  6. I love that you are giving back in this way and honoring your friend. I try to donate hats to our local hospital at least 3-4 times a year.

  7. When changing to another color (like to row 13), do I change when two loops are left on hook from row 12?

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      You can either finish off the row and start the next row with the new color or pull the color through the last part of stitch in the previous row… what ever you like

  8. I love this hat or beanie and I think it’s very pretty !! I also made and donated 130 caps to our local hospital a few weeks ago for new born babies and premies ( premature babies ) .

  9. I made 4 of the Amazing Grace Beanies for family. Wonderful pattern.

  10. Hi,I just wanted to let you know how wonderful you are for doing this in memory of your dear friend. I too plan on doing charity hats for you. I was wondering what the gauge is for this awesome hat and what size is the hat when finished. Can you tell I am a little nervous I have made 3 hats this winter and they are all too small for me,which has made me a little depressed so I am willing to try again. Thanks again for doing this. Much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
    Peggy S

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      I don’t have a gauge posted for this one… but if things tend to turn out small for you ,,, go up a size or two in your hook to make the adjustment… I tend to crochet large.

  11. I made this and it turned out to be sized for a small child

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      Yarn can make a big difference in how the project will turn out. Also, each person may crochet larger or smaller than others…. I didn’t have a gauge for this hat so if you try it again, you may want to try a larger hook.

    • I found the same problem. I used the same hook and yarn. It’s not long enough. The with of it is perfect tho. Easy to read pattern, I don’t know tho, 23 rds won’t even cover my ears all the way.
      I still love the pattern, I’ll just have to adjust it. I am also making these for the cancer center in my home town. Thank you

  12. Great Beanie, worthwhile cause. I like crocheting for charity, have done granny squares for a lady who put them together to make lap-ghans and afghans for vets, homeless and elderly. Will be making a few of these also, will you be doing a drive in 2016? Please post info if you do. Thanks for great patterns. For those who don’t like weaving or knotting yarns together in projects for color change or skein end, please try the Russian join. My best friend told me about it and I love it. You will use up all yarn with hardly no ends to weave in. I had to google how to but well worth it. Thanks again for all you do. Keep up your awesome work!

  13. I’did like to make this for a woman who wears petite hats. How would I adjust the sizing? Thank you

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      I don’t have instructions for different sizing due to the pattern being free… but you could try a smaller hook size.

  14. Beautiful pattern but Im not sure what I did wrong. It barely covers my ears. I used caron cakes so I am going to try again. It comes out so pretty tho.

  15. I love this hat. However, I am having a problem with it. Everything goes fine until I got to rows 19 & 20. 19 is okay but when I get to 20, the SC swallows up the FPSC. For the life of me, I can’t figure out what I am doing wrong. I’ve tried to make it twice with the same result. Please help?

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      You just want to make sure when you are going around the post of the stitch below to get around the post and have the top of the stitch from row 19 go on the back side…That way the top of the stitches from 19 make a ridge

  16. Bettye J Hollis

    Does the Amazing Grace Blissful Beanie have a matching scarf pattern?

  17. I have made a LOT of hats over the years, and I have to say this is one of the most nicely designed, fun hats to make, and I really LOVE the texture of it. Thank you for sharing this pattern so generously. I am already contributing afghans to our local cancer centre, and will check to see if they also can use hats. I bet this one becomes a huge hit, if so.
    Again, a deep bow of gratitude to you.

  18. Madison Smith

    On row 20 to 22 do you chain 1 and turn each row?

  19. I love your pattern and would like to make it for a friend of a friend who is battling cancer and having long term chemo. I have a wonderfully soft #2 (fine) weight baby yarn that I want to use but I’m not sure if it will turn out properly sized. The “I” hook may be too big for the yarn. The yarn label suggests an “E” hook for the yarn but I know that will make a tiny hat! Also I tend to crochet tightly. Any suggestions for making this yarn work in this pattern? Thank you!

  20. Wow – what a great hat! I also crochet for cancer patients. Last year I made 365 hats for donation. and so far this year I have finished 215 – ready for pick up. I’m always looking for new patterns and yours are great. Thank you so much for sharing. You are very talented.

  21. Do you have a video I am stuck in row 15

  22. Hi Beatrice. I’m really looking forward to doing this hat. Our group knits and crochets hats for charity. It’s nice to find a pattern that is versatile and not just a lot of double crochets. I have not done a hat in the round where you have turned your work and gone in reverse. So here I am at row 11 and I am wondering if the FPSC is the row facing me which is the under side or is the right side which would be a BPSC. I hope that makes sense. Thank you
