Men’s Crochet Beanie Pattern

Men's Crochet Beanie

This beanie pattern can be used so that you can crochet it with or without a cuff.

If you crochet this Men’s Crochet Beanie Pattern without the cuff then it would be a beginner pattern.

If you crochet this men’s beanie with the cuff then it becomes an easy skill level pattern.

It’s up to you on which way you want to crochet it but either way, it looks good and does the job.

You can use this pattern to make beanie’s for the men in your family or donate them as chemo caps for charity donations. If you are making men’s beanie for charity then a worthy cause is Crochet for Cancer. Feel free to take a look at their website for addresses on where to donate chemo caps to.

For Visual Learners crochet along with me in the Men’s Crochet Beanie Video Tutorial.

    • Paula says:

      Thank you so much, Michelle! Sure am a busy bee! :-)

  2. Davina says:

    Just love this pattern. Made two hats this evening. Thanks!

    • Paula says:

      Thanks Davina, me too! I just gave two of them away today and was working on another one tonight so we were probably making the same pattern at the same time. :-)

      • Davina says:

        Now I made about 6 of these hats, think I will add some different stitches to it. Thank you thank you thank you.

        • Paula says:

          Wow, that’s great, Davina! 6 Hats! You are on a roll!

  3. Trish says:

    Hi I would love to make this beanie but where do I purchase Red Heart yarnl from in Australia?

  4. Cheryl says:

    Thanks for this simple but fashionable pattern. Been looking on internet for a week for one I can do quickly. make them for the men in my family.

    • Paula says:

      It’s my pleasure, Cheryl. It’s great to know that all the men in your family will have very warm heads this winter!

  5. Suzanne Castillo says:

    I just finished this hat. Easy instructions for a relative beginner like me. Thank you for sharing the pattern.
    My only question: If I needed this hat to be larger, do I just add an extra row of increasing?
    The hat was too tight for either of my sons.

    • Paula says:

      That’s great, Suzanne. It’s my pleasure to be sharing my patterns with you. If you want the hat larger then yes, just add an extra increase round at the crown of the beanie.

  6. emma nichols says:

    I want to make a hat for my dad, for christmas, but I cannot manage to make this, the stitches keep ending up to tight and too small when I do it, and then when I try to keep going, it gets really tangled up. I am very new to chrocheting, so I was wondering what I was doing wrong. Can anyone tell me?

    • Paula says:

      Hello Emma, It’s common as a new crocheter to crochet too tightly. Try to loosen up a little and let your stitches ‘breathe’, meaning let them be a little looser. All the best to you. :-)

  7. Judy says:

    Hi, I am a beginner and this hat looks interesting. I like the brim, it looks knitted. Glad you have a video on the stitch!

    I have a bunch of Red Heart Super Saver yarn. Will that work?

    Thanks so much,

    Judy

    • Paula says:

      Hello Judy, I’m really glad you like this beanie. Yes, Red Heart Super Saver will work for this pattern.
