Beanie Hat Pattern

 I hope you guys enjoy making these as much as I do. You can do so many thing with them! I'm planning on making one with scrap yarn, a different color for every row. You can use a single strand of worsted for a lace look, just watch what the size looks like after the 5th row.

What you need:
K size Crochet Hook
1 Skein Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky yarn, or any other 5 bulky yarn. You can also use 2 strands of worsted held together.
You don't need to worry about a marker at the end of each round, and the round are wide so you can easily count them instead of keeping track. You can add more rounds at the bottom to make it longer and more slouchy.

What you do.....
Main Hat:
With Worsted Weight Yarn
Rnd 1: Holding 2 Strands of Yarn together, ch 3, work 11 dc in first 3rd chain from hook, join with a slip stitch to top of beg ch-3 (12 dc)
Rnd 2: Ch 3, dc in same st at base of beg ch-3, work 2 dc in ea dc around, join with sl st to top of beg ch-3 (24 dc)
Rnd 3: Ch 3, dc in same st at base of beg ch-3, dc in next dc, *2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc, rep from * around, join with sl st (36 dc)
Rnd 4: Ch 3, dc in same st at base of beg ch-3, dc in each of next 2 dc, *2 dc in next dc, dc in ea of next 2 dc, rep from * around, join with sl st (48 dc).
Rnd 5 to 7: Ch 3 (counts as first dc).DC in next DC.  DC in each double crochet around. Join with a sl st. (48dc) Switch to next yarn color if you wish, or you can continue on with the same color.
RND 8 to 11: Ch 3 (counts as first dc).DC in next DC.  DC in each double crochet around. Join with a sl st. (48dc)
Fasten off and weave in your ends. If you have a teenager in  your life you know that they like their hats longer now a days. So if you want to add 2 to 3 more rows after 11 it will really be a rockin’ ski beanie
