Simple beanie

Simple beanie:
1 skein red heart super saver
Size H hook
Beanies have a lot of personality. They can be customized however you or the recipicant wants.  There are some basics when you are crocheting a beanie.
The first is to count your beginning stitches.  For me, I always do one of the two circles. That is the easiest way to begin, starting with the number six. Each row is simply a multiple of six.
6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48,... And so on.
For this one, I'm doing the chain 2, loop into first stitch, six single crochet into stitch.=6
2xsc round= 12
1sc, 2xsc=18
2sc, 2xsc=24
3sc, 2xsc= 30
For a kids hat 36 stitches.
 For a woman's hat 48 stitches
So, it would be. 48/6=8
6 single crochet, 2xsc in next: (6+2=8)
Basic mathematics is all you need to remember.
Photo shows after 48 stitches round.
Continue round 48 single crochet til you have length desired.
