Adult Green Camo Doubled Beanie - Free Crochet Pattern


This is the last part of the last hat and scarf set in my camo series.

I feel like I've been working on these three sets forever but really I completed 1.5 of the three sets and then took a detour to complete two hat and scarf sets for my cousins. I wasn't sure if I'd get it all done in time before the party but it was a success!

In the photos, I am wearing the Teen/Adult Small size, and have a head circumference of 21.5".

09.10.17, Update: I have since created a free crochet pattern for the Basic Beanie in all sizes from Newborn through Adult Large.

Materials:
   - 195 Yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Green Camo
   - I9/5.5mm Hook 
   - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Material Notes:
     Yarn Alternatives: Berroco Vintage, Red Heart's With Love


One 7 oz (355 yards) skein will make multiple hat.

Time Spent:
     One and a half to two hours depending on size.

Measurements:
     The Teen/Adult Small Size has a crown of 6.25" in diameter, a circumference of nearly 19.75" to fit a head size of 20-22", and is 8.5" in length.

The Adult Large Size has a crown of 6.75" in diameter, a circumference of nearly 21.25" to fit a head size of 22-23", and is about 8.5" - 9.5" in length.

Gauge:
With I Love This Yarn and an I9/5.5mm Hook = 4" x 4"
    Chain 16, DC in the 4th stitch, and in each stitch across. (14 DC)
    R2 - R8: Chain 2, turn. DC in the 2nd stitch, and each stitch across.
    Fasten Off.

Abbreviations:
     SC - Single Crochet
     HDC - Half Double Crochet
     DC - Double Crochet


Pattern Notes:
    I work my crown and body differently than most to help keep my seam straight, and it will be written as such.
In the crown, the beginning chain 2 does not count as a stitch, but in the body, the chain 2 does count.
Join to the first stitch, not the beginning chain 2.
If you need some help working one of these beanies, I have a step by step photo tutorial in my Women's Basic Beanie post, and I even explain how to make a fun pom pom to embellish the top of the beanie with!
