This looks like your standard bulky-yarn beanie, but just try to find the "seam" where the double-crochet rounds are joined. (Can you spot the joining stitches on the lime green hat? Hint: Check above the mannequin's ear....) I didn't invent this method of joining -- basically you skip the ch and work into the first real stitch -- but I added a small refinement. I work a short-ish chain, which I think blends in better with the actual stitches. This quick and easy pattern will give you a chance to try out a different way of joining rounds. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY chain stitch, double crochet, single crochet, slip stitch GAUGE 6.6 dc = 4 in./10 cm SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS XS, S-L, XL-XXL -- 20 in./51 cm, 22 in./56 cm and 24 in./61 cm, unstretched, in circumference SUGGESTED YARN 120 yards of Bulky weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Lion Brand Hometown USA, Lion Brand Thick & Quick

I started sewing at a very young age -- making clothes for my dolls by hand and then for myself on my mother's vintage Singer. In my 20s, I taught myself how to knit and crochet. Later I designed sweaters for yarn companies and craft magazines. A couple of years ago, I started crocheting again and become obsessed with making hats. So far, my passion for creating stylish beanies has resulted in a couple of patterns published in crochet magazines, many caps for charity, and my colorful and very well-stocked Etsy store, Hats by Elvee.
