When I first became aware of crop circles in the 80s, I was fascinated. Like Stonehenge and the statues at Easter Island, they held a lovely mystery. Were they natural phenomena? Had aliens landed in the fields, leaving strange and beautiful markings with their spaceship? Did some avant garde artist with suspicious facial hair use fields as his canvas? The mystery was eventually solved when two British pranksters claimed credit for making many of the formations using a wooden plank and some rope. It's no mystery how this beanie is made. Using size 8 needles and heavy worsted yarn, just follow the chart and you'll quickly have your own collection of crop circles.
