Adult Beards

Stand alone beard patterns don't need to attach to hats. Instead, wear them alone, or with whatever hat you want, whether it's crocheted or not.

  • Stand Alone Crochet Beard: This free pattern from Mad Mim uses the bobble stitch to create texture. The beard slips over your ears to secure snugly to your face.
  • Crochet Beard: This crochet beard pattern from Chicken Stitches is adjustable, allowing you to make it small enough for a child, or large enough for an adult.
  • Viking Beard: This beard involves creating a base, and then attaching long strands, which you later braid. Pair with a horned hat for the perfect viking look. Available as a free Ravelry download, you must have an account to access the pattern.
  • Hackalicious Beard: This pattern takes full advantage of the loop stitch to create a loopy, roped texture.
  • Beard for Beanie: This link gives you patterns for both the beard, and the beanie. To include the mustache, follow the link to the free Ravelry pattern, which will require a Ravelry account to access.
  • Das Beardhat Revised: This pattern from Craft Disasters and Other Atrocities is attached to the beanie. This is the revised version, which means the sideburns are wider to support the beard better.

Kyson Parks from San Diego, CA on February 02, 2013:

These are great! I've seen pictures of them but always wondered how they are made! Now I just have to find a friend who can crochet well...

JulieStrier (author) from Apopka, FL on January 26, 2013:

Diana, you're right. These are perfect for the cold. My friend took his up to North Dakota (we live in FL) and kept warm the entire time. Stylish and functional!

Diana L Pierce from Potter County, Pa. on January 26, 2013:

These are perfect for the cold weather patterns sweeping most of the country.

JulieStrier (author) from Apopka, FL on January 24, 2013:

No problem. These patterns are for crochet, but there might be some knitted beard patterns out there. Or maybe it will serve as inspiration and she'll come up with a knitted beard pattern of her own. Either way, thanks for sharing!

Matt from Lansing, Michigan on January 24, 2013:

Just sent this to my daughter who's on a knitting kick. Thanks.

JulieStrier (author) from Apopka, FL on January 04, 2013:

Thanks for sharing. I made one for a friend who can't grow facial hair, and he recently took it on a trip with him to Wyoming (we live in FL). He said it worked well to keep him warm. So, not only are they cute and funny, but functional too.

jcalbon on January 04, 2013:

What a fun (and funny!) project. I'm not very good at crochet, but will share the link with a friend who enjoys it.

Nicole on December 24, 2012:

The beard from busting stitches is all sizes

Jonas from Sweden on December 11, 2012:

ooohh my girlfriend would love a nice beard! :D

CanvasArtShop on November 28, 2012:

Haha I love this idea, who wouldn't want to wear a crochet beard? Great hub!

torrilynn on November 26, 2012:

Wow I found that this hub was very creative and seemed like it would be a lot of fun. I would definitely wear a crotchet beard if I had to. Voted up.

JulieStrier (author) from Apopka, FL on November 18, 2012:

Oh, thanks for the clarification. That's a good hub idea too. :)

claudiafox from Sydney, Australia on November 18, 2012:

Yes, a moustache, we call a "Mo". And so men grow a mo in "Movember" for charity projects.

JulieStrier (author) from Apopka, FL on November 17, 2012:

Claudia, is a Mo a mustache?

claudiafox from Sydney, Australia on November 17, 2012:

Ha ha. Love these ideas. In Australia we call November Movember and those who can, grow a Mo. Please advise on Mo patterns.

Kimberly Vaughn from Midwest on November 11, 2012:

These are so cute on kids! It makes me wish I could crochet!

JulieStrier (author) from Apopka, FL on October 08, 2012:

Glad I could help. I was researching these to make for a friend -- he requested one as a birthday present -- and thought others might find these patterns useful as well. Glad I could help. :)

Jessica Ellen Holbrook from Newark, DE, USA on October 07, 2012:

Completely awesome! And I was gonna pay $20 for a beardo!
