Simple Men’s Beanie

Take a look around our craft and you’ll see tons of female and child items. So, I thought I’d make a simple men’s beanie this time.

You could wear it in a slouch style…

and forgive me, I couldn’t resist modelling my own design. haha.

 

Using basic half double crochet and single crochet stitches this is surely a project even a beginner can take on. I decided not to carry the yarn along so that when the fabric stretches, there would be no interference with the colour sequence. However, if you decide to carry the contrast yarn along, see a tutorial for colour changing.

See the reverse of the hat? a swirl of colour which makes a kinda cool design on its own.
