Just Released – Free Men’s Beanie Hat: Free Crochet Pattern

The Crochet Crowd's Design Hat

A new pattern released by Michael Sellick.


Winter is now coming and I am in full winter mode for making crochet goodies to match Daniel and I’s winter wardrobe.

I created this pattern using Bernat’s Mosaic Yarn Line. The colouring in the picture is called “Into the Woods”. I used two balls of yarn at one time to give extra thickness for those cold winter days.

I used a size H hook or 5.5 MM. This was done in less than 2 hours. It fits Daniel like a charm. There was a bit of research & development involved to ensure the sizing would properly fit a grown man.

This Men’s Beanie Hat is a completely free pattern by Mikey; follow along with this pattern right now.

You may find this tutorial hard to believe as being popular, but it has nearly reached 55,000 views. As crazy as this sounds, in my speed and excitement to get the machine unpacked, 3 components fell out of the machine. There was no instructions provided on how to get it back into place. 2 Hours of fiddling and trying to problem solve this, I finally figured it out.
I had turned to YouTube to get a video from someone that did the same thing. There was nothing. So I said, after I figure this out, I am going to film how to get these components back into position.
As simple as it appears in my video, there is no instructions on a diagram to show how the components are to work together. I hadn’t seen it in much detail before taking it out and therefore I wasn’t sure where things were suppose to go.
This video is one of the highest commented videos in my collection. It’s people merely stating the obvious! “Thank You” for showing me the way.
Behind the scenes, Daniel criticized it was a stupid video to film and I said no… it’s an opportunity to show how to fix something because I am sure I am not the only person that has done this and needs help.
I credit myself with how many refunds and store returns has stopped as a result of this video. YouTube can be really phenomenal when it comes to learning something.
