Learn how to make a ponytail beanie with this fun sewing pattern. This hat pattern comes in child, teen, and adult sizes for the whole family.
I designed this ponytail beanie pattern for lots of different ages, and it’s really easy to sew. It’s only three seams and a hem! It comes in child sizes 2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, teen, and adult small, adult medium, and adult large.
These ponytail beanies are designed to fit snug, but with enough room for hair or a loose ponytail. Lengthen the hat for a more slouchy look, or sew a deeper hem for more of a knit cap look.
This ponytail beanie sewing pattern has a hole at the very top to put a ponytail or bun through. A bun might be a little too large and will need to be added after putting the hat on.

What fabric works for this ponytail beanie sewing pattern?
This ponytail beanie is designed to be used with stable knit fabric. A stable knit fabric stretches horizontally, but it does not stretch vertically. Stable knit fabrics are polar fleece, sweatshirt fleece, French terry, etc. Check the stretch before you sew.
The ponytail beanie should be cut so that the stretch will go around the head to make it comfortable.
Whenever I go outside in the winter, I need to wear something over my ears. I hate having cold ears! Sometimes my hair is up so I can go running. Sometimes my hair needs to be in a bun so that I can enjoy the winter weather, but my hair won’t fit in a bun. I can’t always have my hair in two braids or down with a winter hat.
This ponytail beanie gives space for whatever my hair is doing, keeping it out of my face, but it also keeps my head and ears warm.
