Cosmic Crochet Beanie
Cosmic Crochet Beanie
This image courtesy of charmedbyewe.com

Get ready for the winter with this two-hued, two-stitched Cosmic Crochet Beanie. Use one color for the main portion of the beanie, worked in the herringbone half double crochet stitch, and then use an accent color and the simple half double crochet stitch to finish off the fold up brim. This combination of plush, dense stitches makes this crochet hat the perfect thing to wear on the breeziest and chilliest of days. And, with available sizes from newborn all the way up through large adult, you'll be able to make one for every member of your family, in any of their favorite shades. 

Notes:
The hat can be started with a Magic Ring or with the instructions given in Round 1.
The beginning chain does not count as a stitch.
Each round is started in the same stitch as your beginning chain.
The end of each round is joined by slip stitching in the first stitch of the round, not the beginning chain.
The hat height measurement is taken before adding the ribbing.

What does HB half double crochet mean?

HI cameo, It means Herringbone Half Double crochet. If you scroll down past the pattern, we have an abbreviations section that explains the stitch. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Fairly easy peavey! Nice and warm with the little extra band keeping the hast snug! Outstanding!

I think this looks like a great beanie pattern for both men and women, I wish the band didn't stand out so much from the hat, but it's still a great pattern to mix and match colors and textured yarns for different looks.
