new crochet pattern - back roads beanie by kim miller.

Skill Level: Intermediate

A crochet beanie pattern for that special man in your life!

This pattern was designed with the Canadian outdoor man in mind. 100% wool and cables make for a thick, warm fabric, and ear flaps ensure that the ears are not exposed to the cold.

This well written crochet pattern calls for 1/3 of a ball of Patons® Classic Wool [100 g (3.5 ounces)/192 meters (210 yards) per ball] (colour shown – Dark Grey Mix), 1 ball of Patons® Classic Wool (colour shown – Light Grey Marle), and a 4.00 mm (G) crochet hook. The beanie is worked from the bottom up. The beanie measures 48.3 cm (19”) in circumference, and 22.9 cm (9”) long (excluding the ear flaps). The beanie will stretch to fit 55.9 cm (22”) to 59.7 cm (23½”) in circumference and will fit most men. Please note that measurements are approximate and will be affected by the gauge and the brand of yarn.

This crochet pattern calls for the following stitches and techniques: slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, front post double crochet, back post double crochet, front post treble crochet, single crochet 2 together, front post double crochet 2 together, front twist and back twist.
