Men’s Large Crochet Beanie Pattern

mens large crochet beanie pattern

A few weeks ago we were at one of the last farmers markets of the season – I know kind of sad. We had a wonderful couple come by our booth and ask if I could do custom sized hats. Well, of course I can. He graciously let me measure his head (a couple of times) so I could get the sizing right. What he wanted was a very simple single colored beanie. Easy peasy right….Except I didn’t have a pattern that would exactly fit him. I needed to revamp my basic men’s large crochet beanie pattern. 

Here are the results:

We will be working in double crochet for the entire project. 

Double Crochet = DC

Slip Stitch = SS

Chain = CH

Let’s get started on this men’s large crochet beanie pattern already…

Start with a magic ring, if you need to learn how to do this, please watch this quick video.

Round 1: Magic ring, chain 2 (this will count as a double crochet) DC 11 more times in circle. Pull circle tight, slip stitch into top of ch 2. (12 DC)

Round 2: Chain 2, DC in same space as ch, 2 DC in each stitch all the way around. SS into top of ch 2 space. (24 DC)

Round 3: CH 2, DC in same space as ch, *DC in next space, 2DC in next space* repeat this all the way around. SS into top of CH 2 space. (36 DC)

Round 4: CH 2, DC in same space as ch, *DC in next 2 spaces, 2DC in next space* repeat this all the way around. SS into top of CH 2 space. (48 DC)

Round 5: CH 2, DC in same space as ch, *DC in next 3 spaces, 2DC in next space* repeat this all the way around. SS into top of CH 2 space. (60 DC)

For EXTRA LARGE: 

Round 6: CH 2, DC in same space as ch, *DC in next 4 spaces, 2DC in next space* repeat this all the way around. SS into top of CH 2 space. (72 DC)

For BOTH SIZES of the men’s large crochet beanie pattern:

Round 7 – 15 CH 2, DC in same space as ch, DC in each space all the way around. SS into top of CH 2 space. (60 DC) [72 DC for extra large] 

Fasten off and weave in ends. 

*Note men’s large crochet beanie pattern will start at round 6 with single DC in each space for a total of 9 single DC rounds. 

This is a very simple pattern and easy for beginners. Once you’ve mastered the basics of this pattern, feel free to add stripes in various colors and in different rounds. Like this version available in our Facebook ShopMen's Large Crochet Beanie Pattern
