Les like to wear beanies that he can roll up or wear unrolled as skull caps. I have been happily crocheting them for him. Yep, that is a cool husband who will wear my crocheted creations. LOL… And out in public no less.
These beanies are really easy, fun and quick to work up. Plus, half the fun is gathering my scrap yarn and choosing colorways. I don’t use a pattern except to look for stitches that grab my attention. All of the beanies are worked in the round, starting with a circle at the top, increasing until I reach an approximate head size and then worked straight down to the crown.
If you don’t have a person right there to measure their head size, then there are lots of size charts on the internet. I printed this one out so that I could make hats for my niece and great niece. Click the picture for a print link to the chart.
One of my favorite ways to find cool stitches is to go to Pinterest and search for free crochet patterns. Then I just grab whatever the stitch is and work it for a couple rounds before switching to a different stitch. If you are interested, I’ve amassed quite a fun crochet board on Pinterest. Check it out if you have the time.
Stay safe friends.
