My husband loves his hats, and beanies and had seen a chunky beanie in a designer shop retail price $45. But he thought I could crochet him a better hat and l just love crocheting hats. So I designed this really easy mens crochet beanie hat pattern especially for him.

And my husband loves it. It holds its shape really well and the ribbed edge helps to keep it snug.

This is one of my husbands favorite hats, but he wanted one without the visor, but same style, so this is where I took the inspiration for our mens crochet hat pattern, Obviously i could not add a tag to mine, so we added buttons, around the cuff.

Finished hat measures

I used hook 6.00mm

My Husbands Hat was worked using 2 strands of yarn (Double knitting, or you could use Aran) at the same time, this reduces the "holes" created by the double Crochet stitch and makes it a much warmer hat

Special Instructions: (ch-3 does not count as dc)

dc= double crochet

fpdc= Front Post Double Crochet

bpdc= Back Post Double Crochet

Rnd 1: Magic Ring, ch 3. 12 dc. Pull ring tight. Join with sl st to top ch of ch 3.

(Making the ribbed band)

Hi please could you also send me the Sherlock Holmes hat?

Betty on December 07, 2018:

Hi. I never chat on these but I really need to ask Lisa a big favor. My son absolutely loves Sherlock Holmes (story line and all). I thought it would be awesome to make him a hat like you have posted but it says it has been removed. May I ask you, when you have a moment, please send me your pattern of the Sherlock Holmes Deer Stalker Hat. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. Have a great Holiday everyone. My email is :

Hi Lisa,

This hat looks perfect, exactly what I've been searching for! Can you tell me how much yarn this will use? If you can estimate in yards that will be great. I'n not a very experienced crocheter, but I'm thinking of a nice yarn from Ireland for a special gift, but it's expensive and I want to make sure I order enough but not too much.

Thanks so much for sharing this!

Lisa Auch (author) from Scotland on October 14, 2014:

Thanks for letting me hubby needed the larger size :)

AngieO on October 05, 2014:

I made this and I really appreciate the pattern. Will need to make some adjustments on the next one. Regular stitches down about 12 rounds then ribbing for only 3 or 4.

Lisa Auch (author) from Scotland on February 28, 2014:

@sheawilson71: @Shea Wilson TYPO alert (I have now fixed it and my sincere apologies! DO join! Hugs to you and thankyou for contacting me :)

sheawilson71 on February 27, 2014:

@LisaAuch1: At row 9, it says chain 2 and turn. I do that and at the end of that row it says to not join. So then I start row 10. It also says do not join. I follow instructions for the rest of the pattern and end up with a "V" opening from not joining any of the rows.

Lisa Auch (author) from Scotland on February 27, 2014:

@sheawilson71: HI! can you clarify which rounds you are having the problem with? (you are working in each stitch around, alternating front post and back post double crochet to create the ribbing :)

sheawilson71 on February 26, 2014:

I'm having a problem with the ribbed area. If I follow the instructions, I end up with a "V" opening. Could you help me please?

anonymous on August 16, 2013:

@LisaAuch1: Finally found your pattern for men's crochet hat. Thanks for sharing. Will make in black for my grandson.

Wendy Hughes from Charlotte on August 07, 2013:

Not knowing a THING about crocheting, those instructions look like my last tax return's! I wish I could crochet.

Lisa Auch (author) from Scotland on December 11, 2012:

@darciefrench lm: Hi Dacie, great to see you! I think you are looking for the Earwarmes Very easy to make and so cozy, I have made so many and keep getting asked for more Great idea for the men!

darciefrench lm on December 10, 2012:

Do you have a pattern where the hat covers the ears but not the top of the head? Not sure what it's called. Hubby likes his ears covered, but not the top of his head. Lovely of you to offer free crochet patterns for beanies :)

I believe some men will be warmer this winter:)
