Manly Houndstooth Hat

By:

When it comes to crochet hats, men like to keep it simple. This Manly Houndstooth Hat is fashionable but understated, so it's sure to fit any guy's style. Make one for your favorite man before winter comes - he'll wear this warm hat all season long.


 

Materials:

  • I Love This Yarn by Hobby Lobby
  • Crochet Hook Size – I
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in the ends

 

Gauge: 

  • Approximately 5-6 stitches and 6 Rows  = 2 in. (Measurements used from the rounds using the hdc st.

 

Abbreviations:

  • sc – single crochet
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • dc – double crochet
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • YO – yarn over

 

Notes:

  • Reverse SC – Also known as the crab stitch, is made by doing a single crochet stitch but in the opposite direction.  Right-handed people work from left to right and left-handed people from right to left.  Here is a photo tutorial I found if you need the extra help.
  • On each round of the rows I will instruct you to ch 1.  This does not count as a sc/hdc/dc throughout the pattern.
