Free Crochet Pattern: The Karlo Beanie
If you are scrambling for a last-minute gift, look no further. I can crank out one of these hats in 45 minutes flat.
I have been working very hard to find the perfect beanie pattern and am in love with this one. It has a nice feminine slouch without being too athletic. It fits perfectly without destroying a hairstyle.
Of course, if you are going for a more unisex ski-slope look, simply crochet fewer rows.
Supplies: Size “N” crochet hook, bulky yarn. I crocheted this hat from a recycled sweater but a nice cushy acrylic would be fantastic.
Gauge: 2 hdc= 1″
Ch 3. 6 hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Join w sl st to first hdc: 7 hdc. (Ch 2 at beg of rnd counts as first hdc throughout.)
Rnd 1: Ch 2, hdc in same sp. 2 hdc in each hdc around. Join w sl st.: 14 st.
Rnd 2: Ch 2, 2 hdc in next st. (Hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st) 6 times. Join w sl st: 21 st.
Rnd 3: Ch 2, hdc in next st. 2 hdc in next st. (Hdc in next 2 st, 2 hdc in next st) 6 times. Join w sl st: 28 st.
Rnd 4: Ch 2, hdc in next 2 st. 2 hdc in next st. (Hdc in next 3 st, 2 hdc in next st) 6 times. Join w sl st: 35 st.
Rnd 5: Ch 2, hdc in next 3 st. 2 hdc in next st. (Hdc in next 4 st, 2 hdc in next st) 6 times. Join w sl st: 42 st.
Rnd 6: Ch 2, 1 hdc in each st around, join w sl st: 42 st.
Repeat round 6- 11 times. Tie off. Weave in ends.
And that is all, my friends! One Law and Order: SVU marathon on USA and you have a whole family of hats. Not too much time or money, but a lovely gift nonetheless.
