Free Crochet Pattern: Men's Basic Beanie with Options

(Shown in Deborah Norville Everyday Soft Oak Moss & I Love This Yarn Orange Neon)

This is a great basic beanie pattern for men using hdc's. At the end of the pattern you can choose to add additional rows if you want a hat with a folded edge or if you would like a slouchy hat. I highly recommend the Deborah Norville Everyday Soft or I Love This Yarn (worsted weight) for this project. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Thanks for such a simple hat pattern and easy to follow instructions. I did like having the option of three different styles to end the hat with.
