Men's Summer Beanie Crochet Pattern

A light hat, perfect for going up in the
 mountains for playing or hiking.
Great hat for a Morning run or  an evening walk.
Or for just a little bit of warmth.

Super Easy and Super 
Quick Men's Summer Beanie, Or Slouchy Beanie.
I was putting together a collection 
of Crochet patterns of Summer Hats
 for men and just could not find very many.

I decided to write one for my hubby.
And This is what I came up with.

to ch3 with a sl st,(10 dc)

R : 2 - Ch3, 2 dc in each dc around, join, ( 20 dc)

just add a few more rounds of R: 7 and 8.

Add more rows of sc if you want a thicker band.

made with some pretty bright colors.
