Men's Summer Beanie Crochet Pattern

Super Easy and Super 
Quick Men's Summer Beanie,
Or Slouchy Beanie.

Please, head over to 
Ravelry
And Add this pattern 
to your favorites.

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.

Men's Summer Beanie Crochet Pattern

Fits a 18-19 inch head.

Skill- Super Easy

Materials -
Hook- I
Yarn - Worsted Weight ( 4) Variegated yarn (about 3 ozs)
small amount of a Solid Coordinating yarn for hat band.
                I used Red Heart Stripes - Sonoma
 and Med. Brown - Super saver

Stitches:
Chain   ( Ch )
Slip Stitch  ( sl st )
Double Crochet ( dc )
Half Double Crochet  ( hdc )

Note: Ch 3 counts as the 1st st of the next round.

Start with a magic Circle - Link

R : 1 - Ch 3, counts as 1st dc, 9 dc in the magic circle, join, 
to ch3 with a sl st,(10 dc)

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

R : 3 - Ch3, 1 dc in the same st, *1 dc in the next st, 2 dc in the next st*,
Repeat from * to * around, join, (30dc)

R : 4 - Ch3, 1 dc in the same st, *1 dc in the next 2 st, 2 dc in the next st*,
Repeat from * to * around, join, (40dc)

R : 5 - Ch3, 1 dc in the same st, *1 dc in the next 3 st, 2 dc in the next st*,
Repeat from * to * around, join, (50dc)

R : 6 - 1 dc in each dc around, join, ( 50 dc)

R : 7 - Ch 4, sk the next dc, *dc in the next st, ch 1, skip the next st*
Repeat From * to * around, join, ( 50sts)

R : 8 - Ch 3, 1 dc in the 1st st, *1 dc in the ch 1 space, 1 dc in the next dc*,
Repeat From * to * around, join, ( 50 sts)

R : 9-14 - Repeat R : 7 and 8, alternating the rounds

If you want the beanie to be a slouchy beanie, 
just add a few more rounds of R: 7 and 8.

R : 15 - Change to solid yarn, 1 hdc in each dc, join ( 50hdc)

R : 16 - 1 hdc in each st, join (50hdc)

R : 17 - 1 hdc in each st, join, and tie off, weave in ends.(50 hdc)

It is so easy and quick you can 
whip one up in about 30 minutes!!

I think the ladies would even like these, 
made with some pretty bright colors.
