Perfect Man Hat

The other day was opening day for gun season and my husband asked me for a warm hat that would be visible to other hunters. So I worked up this beanie for him in a night :) I shared the pictures in a crochet group and was asked to share the pattern so here it is! A woman commented calling it "the perfect man hat" so I figured that is what I'd call it! Enjoy!

  1. I have never done a magic loop.. After you chain two where do you do ten dbl crochet exactly?

  2. Tutorials are on YouTube. Search crochet magic ring. It's all I use now when working in a round.

  3. The only thing you may want to clarify is that you slip stitch at end of each round!

  4. The one thing I cannot see is how many rounds you did with the camo, other than that I'm starting my husbands now, thank you
