    About the simple crochet beanie

    Finally, my husband asked me to make him a beanie! Of course being a designer I had all sorts of stitches and ideas running through my head. I was quickly stopped in my tracks when he kindly asked for a simple beanie with small stitches, no pompom, no cuff… no drama. Overall we are both happy with how the beanie looks, I guess sometimes less is more. The No drama men’s beanie is made using only the single crochet making it perfect for beginners. As mentioned above its a very simple, no fuss beanie. The beanie pattern is for medium and large adult sizes. Even though I made mine for a man its simple unisex design makes it suitable for women too.
