Pattern Description:

You can crochet a colorful beanie masterpiece for women, men and teens with self-striping yarn and this easy PDF pattern.

--The 5-Square Beanie is a step-by-step crochet hat pattern for worsted-weight yarn. You make five squares and then you have a choice of two ways to put them together: with sleek single-crochet or bumpy bobble-stitch. This hat (approximately 20 in./51 cm to 21 in./53 cm around) will fit most teens and adults.

The 5-page PDF pattern also includes a chart of the square motif, a tutorial on a special finishing technique and links to pages on my website for crocheters who want more information on the stitches used.
