Striped Beanie Free Crochet Pattern

I gifted this striped beanie and it has been one of the most loved (and worn) hats I’ve crocheted recently. Striped beanies are a perfect way to crochet hats for the menfolk. It can be hard to decide what to make or gift the men in our lives, but this one is spot on. The stripes add interest that isn’t (or could be!) too girly or lacy as crochet hats can be perceived sometimes. You can make the colors are simple or bold as you desire. This is a simple and easy crochet hat that even beginners can make and give to their loved ones.

Lion Brand’s Heartland* is such a soft, squishy yarn I just love working with it. The subtle color flecks throughout work up into a gorgeous solid color hat, and as you can see are beautiful when paired together. This yarn is soft, warm and machine washable so it’s perfect for beanies. Check out some of my other hats made with Lion Brand’s Heartland Yarn: Textured Slouchy Hat and the  Mini Puff Stitch Hat.
