NoteI recently decided to revisit my basic beanie/hat pattern.  After designing my Candy Corn and Scarecrow hats using an I 5.5mm crochet hook, I found that I really liked the size and closeness of the stitches. I will be transitioning all of my hat and wig patterns over to my new Basic Beanie pattern beginning on Monday, October 22nd. 

My husband, kids and I LOVE Halloween so it only made sense for me to design a hat inspired by the anguished monster of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. This hat is quick and easy to make. There aren't a lot of pieces to sew on which means less ends to weave in! Yay for that! Enjoy. 🙂

Materials

- H 5 mm & J 6 mm crochet hooks (I love these Clover hooks!)

- tapestry needle
- stitch markers
- worsted weight yarn in  blackwhite & green

Finished Sizes

0/3 months - adult

Gauge

Crochet gauge: 15 dc= 4”, 7 rows= 3"

If you find that your gauge is too large, go down a size to an I 5.5 mm crochet hook. If you would like me to walk you through the first four rounds of my hat or if you need help with making a magic ring or any of the stitches, visit my channel.

Notes

-you are crocheting in the round

-hat is worked from the top down

-the ch at the beginning of each round never counts as your first stitch

-you can make any size hat longer or shorter by repeating or eliminating the second to last row before the ear flaps

Pass the strand ends through the loop and pull tight to form a knot. Divide the strands into three sections (10 strands in each) and braid.  Repeat for 2nd braid.
