Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Two Faced Black Scarf for everyone - kNot mY deSigns

Two Faced Black Scarf

Talking about art, everyone is familiar with the name Picasso. Even though I do not have in-depth knowledge of his work, I know that he has created several masterpieces. La Vie (1903), The Old Guitarist (1903), Portrait of Gertrude Stein (1905), Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), Guernica (1937) are few of his best works depicting a period of time of his life.

These periods are categorized as 

  • The Blue Period (1901–1904),
  • The Rose Period (1904–1906),
  • African Influenced (1907–1909),
  • Cubism (1909–1912), 
  • Classicism, Surrealism, and Sculpture (1910-1920)

where he focused on one theme.

One of his painting that grabbed my attention was DEUX PERSONNAGES (LA LECTURE), 1934 which means “Two Characters”. The portrayal of two women reading was one of the most recognizable works of art in the 20th century. Marie-Thérèse Walter, his beloved mistress, was the inspiration behind most of his creations during the early 1930s; a ‘Marie-Thérèse period’. 

Inspired by the name Two Characters, I named this black scarf as a Two Faced Black Scarf. It has two correct sides meaning you can wear it from both the sides as a scarf or as a cowl. There is no right or the wrong side of this scarf. It is a unisex scarf that would go along with any winter jacket!

PS Credit: Sothebys – Impressionist Modern Art EveningPablo Picasso.OrgWikipedia – Pablo_Picasso.

Process:

The scarf is worked horizontally.

Chain (CH) multiples of 2.

Note: I created 320 chains +1. single crochet one row.

R1: 2 single crochet (SC) in the 2nd CH from the hook, *skip next CH, 2 SC in next CH; rep from * across, turn.

R2: CH 2, skip first SC, 2 SC in next SC, * skip next SC, 2 SC in next SC; rep from * across turn.

Rep R2 for the pattern.

Finishing: single crochet one row.

Measurement: 82″ X 6.75″.

Caution Section:-

  1. Since the pattern is very simple, there aren’t many precautions we need to worry about except the initial chain count based on the yarn thickness.
  2. The initial count stitch will alter based on the yarn selected and the size of the scarf you are looking for. For e.g. I made 320 chains to get 82″ length. 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 82″
  • Width: 6.75″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • If you are treating it as a female scarf then-
  • Add a line of tassels to the ends of both sides along the width. 4 Tassels at the corners will also work. You can reduce the size of the scarf as tassels will add another 10″.
  • Attach pom-poms to each of the corners.
  • The tassels or pompoms colour should be of the base colour or any contrast colour. Shades of white, golden, silver, brown, creme, mustard will add the beauty.
  • Pom-poms and tassels can be of wool, faux fur, ribbons, plastic, resin etc. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • The long length edging, you can have a Crab Stitch, Single Crochet, Slip Stitch.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall/Spring Seasoned Crochet Men's Slouch Beanie Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Men’s Slouch Beanie

Whenever we talk about fashion, it is known that the conversation would revolve around female couture. But masculine trends aren’t behind. Lately, fashion and apparel design have evolved to introduce a third category of attire that could be worn by both genders.

Yes, we are talking about the Unisex range, which includes Trousers, tuxedo, pants, shirts and more. The unisex clothing has become a common selection for both men and women.

In Fashion, Gender Lines Are Blurring by New York Times mentions the thoughts of Ken Downing. The fashion director of Neiman Marcus says “What we see now, he said, “is a seismic shift in fashion, a widening acceptance of a style with no boundaries, one that reflects the way young people dress.”

Thinking on the similar lines, I decided to make slouch beanie, which is primarily for men but is unisex too. Though these are specific in gender, the sober yarn colours are suitable for both an adult man and an adult woman. And of course, a lot depends on the way you style it.

Presenting crochet beanie Black and Blue from Knot My Designs to take away the winter blues and stay warm and stylish this season.

Process:

These are basic simple slouch beanies.The process is very easy. For Black Slouch Beanie, instead of providing additional edge/ brim of FDPC and BPDC; I decided to make one basic Double Crochet Stitch(DC) black slouch beanie. For the other Blue Slouch Beanie, I created an edge of Back Loop Single Crochet Stitch (BLOSC) for about 1″.

The Beanie circumference is 22″-24″ for large man head size. You can modify as per woman’s head size of 20″-22″. The beanie height range between 12″-14″, to give a deeper slouchy look.

For detailed basic beanie pattern: please check out: Basic Black Beanie Pattern.

Caution Section:-

  1. To create the slouch, increase the height of the beanie to more than 10″ but do not exceed 13″-14″.
  2. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn vary the diameter of the base.
  3. The crochet hook recommended vs the crochet hook used defines the design.
  4. For slouchy or loose beanie, the crochet hook should be larger than the recommended.
  5. Concentrate on the base diameter of the beanie and increase or decrease the rows. Generally, for any adult beanie 60-84, DC is suitable.
  6. The total number of stitches per row is different for SC, HDC, DC etc.
  7. Keep measuring the circumference and the height to avoid frogging or rework.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height for an adult man hat: 12″ – 14″
  • Circumference: 23″-24″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

[Note: The height of the hat is measured from the closed tip to the bottom when the hat is laid flat. ]

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • This is a Unisex beanie. So in case you are using it as a female beanie, you can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging to give a different touch.
  • For men, keep it simple. The colour selection should catch the eye.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Unisex Crochet Santa Claus's Hat Free Pattern - kNot mY deSigns

Santa Claus’s Hat

Men have a defined sense of fashion and it stays with them throughout and rarely changes. No external factor including women can change this. It could be almost a struggle to bring change in their fashion and make them try out something new. This phenomenon, however, changes in the case of technology. In fact, men would conform to latest updates and gadgets in the market.

Women, on the other hand, embellish their clothing with a lot of addendums like a pom-pom, ruffles, tassels, frills, lace, ribbons, which is seemingly absent in men’s clothing. And I can not disagree further. Any accessory would be a contrast to their masculinity and feel lesser manly.  However, there is an exception to this when it comes to the pompom on the red and white Santa Claus Hat. After all, it’s Christmas Eve!; the festive season, when everyone is anxiously waiting for gifts. Kids are lingering around for Santa to come and hand over their presents, which they have wished for! While everyone is being impish wearing Santa Hat, Elf hat, elf shoes and reindeer horns, men in the family have to join too.

Merry Christmas Everyone! HO! HO! HO!

Process:

The procedure contains Double Crochet (DC), Half Double Crochet (HDC) and a big pom-pom in 3 sections.

  1. Body
  2. Brim
  3. Pompom

Body:-

R1: Started with a magic circle, and 8 Double Crochet stitches (DC).Total 8 DC.

R2: Instead of increasing 2 DC on every DC in next row, I increased by 4 stitches in the 2nd row. *2 DC in next DC, DC in next DC*; repeat *-*. Total 12 DC.

R3: Repeat the row. Total 12 DC.

R4: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 2 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 16 DC.

R5: Repeat R4. Total

R6: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 3 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 20 DC.

R7: Repeat R6. Total

R8: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 4 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 24 DC.

R9: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 5 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 28 DC.

R10: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 6 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 32 DC.

Continue increasing every row by 4 till your hat circumference is 22-23. I have increased gradually till 84 DC.

Note: The total counts should be greater than 60 for an adult hat. It depends on the yarn, chosen crochet hook and your strength applied in each stitch.

R11: Continued 84DC for 8 more rows.

Brim:-

R1: Changed the yarn to white and start creating the brim by using Half Double Crochet (HDC) in each DC.

R2: Continue it till the brim length is 2-3″ i.e. 8-11 HDC.

Finishing: Cut the yarns and sew all the stranded yarns.

Diff Brim Style: Instead of Single Crochet (SC) or HDC, you can go for alternate Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC), Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) to create a ribbed brim. No edging.

Pom-Pom:-

Create a big pompom and attach to the starting row.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height for an adult man hat: 14″
  • Circumference: 23″-24″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • For edging, you can use white fur, Crab Stitch or Slip Stitch.
  • The complete Santa hat can be made using DC with the last row of edging.
  • Instead of white yarn, you can use white fur yarn to create the brim.
  • You can insert the Santa Belt in the intersection of red and white yarn.
    • For that reduce the Red yarn rows by 4 and DC across using black yarn. Total 84 Black Yarn DC.
    • Create Santa Belt Buckle and stitch it to the hat.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Gramp's Football Theme Beanie free pattern for winter/fall season - Knot My Designs

Gramp’s Football Theme Beanie

Who says that themed beanies or scarves are only made for children and teens? When you are a grandfather or a grandmother, you have every right to wear themed based accessories along with your grandsons and granddaughters. I imagined the same when I started with the idea of making an American Football Theme beanie for grandpa. Following the Football theme, I had already created a Toddler Football Flap Beanie and Baby Football Cocoon. Thus, making a Football beanie for grandpa was an easy decision. They can wear during football season or at Halloween or Thanksgiving! All you need is a good family photo capturing the moments and embracing it forever.

Process:

It is simple Double Crochet stitch (DC) beanie with rows of white to create American Football theme. I have not added the stitches so that it doesn’t look extremely kiddish for grandpa. It can be easily worn on many occasions too. They can wear it anytime they want. The height of the beanie is 9.5″ and the hat circumference is 22-23″. It can be carried as slouch beanie depending on the person’s head size.

Body:-

R1: Started with a magic circle, and 12 Double Crochet stitches (DC), join at the beginning. Total 12 DC.

R2: Ch 2, *2 DC in each DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 24 DC.

R3: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 36 DC.

R4: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 2 DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 48 DC.

R5: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 3 DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 60 DC.

Note: The total counts should be greater than 60 for an adult hat. It depends on the yarn, chosen crochet hook and your strength applied in each stitch.

R6: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 4 DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 72 DC.

R7: DC in each DC, join at the beginning. Total 72 DC.

R8-R9: Change to white colour. Repeat R7.

R10-R15: Change to the base colour. Repeat R7.

R16-R17: Change to white colour. Repeat R7.

R18: Change to the base colour. Repeat R7.

Caution Section:-

  • Calculation of the position of the white bands is important.
  • It will be easy if the basics of the hat’s height are defined. For e.g. if the total height of the hat is 9″ and white band is about 1″ thick then the placement of the white band should be after 3″  and 8″ approx. 
  • Since the number of rows alters due to different yarn sizes and crochet hooks, it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″. Based on this calculation, the position of the white band can be set.
  • The positioning of the white bands and the football stitch seam along with the knowledge of the gauge will reduce the rework.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height for an adult man hat: 9.5″
  • Circumference: 22″-23″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • For edging, you can use base colour fur, Crab Stitch or Slip Stitch or Herringbone Half Double Crochet(HHDC).
  • You can add the Football stitching in between the hat with white yarn. I avoided the stitch to the hat for multi-occasion.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Fall/Winter Seasoned Crochet Men's Wavy Scarf Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Men’s Wavy Scarf

Waves are known to transfer energy from one source to another. In design, we concentrate on the form and shape that a wave creates rather than capturing the vibration or calculating the energy transfer. We capture and fabricate different wave patterns, and try to implement them while innovating new designs.

As already mentioned in Men’s Mesh Scarf, the challenge to create a handsome accessory for the elder age group is to choose the right colour and pattern. I adopted the identical flow of the wave pattern into my product because the flow defines grace as well as sturdiness.

This scarf could be used with Men’s Ash-Lead Beanie to form a beanie-scarf set for men.

Process:

Working vertically, the scarf is worked on back loops throughout. The length of the scarf is 6ft i.e. 72″. The width is 8-10″ considering the standard male scarf dimensions.

I decided to settle on Moogly’s – Summer Wave Placemats and Coasters to create the wavy scarf. The site provides the detailed step by step procedure. To create this lengthy scarf, you need 15 +1 chain counts to create a wave.

I have multiplied 15×20 +1 i.e. 301 chains to have 70+” length of the scarf.

Remember the thickness of the yarn, the selected crochet hook and your style ( loose stitch, medium tight stitch, tight stitch) specifies the length of the product.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 70+”
  • Width: 8-10″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • If you are using this as a female scarf then-
  • Add a line of tassels to the ends of both sides along the width. 4 Tassels at the corners will also work. You can reduce the size of the scarf as tassels will add another 10″.
  • Attach pom-poms to each of the corners.
  • The tassels or pompoms colour should be of the base colour or any contrast colour. Shades of white, golden, silver, brown, creme, mustard will add the beauty.
  • Pom-poms and tassels can be of wool, faux fur, ribbons, plastic, resin etc. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • The long length edging, you can have a Crab Stitch, Single Crochet, Slip Stitch.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Crochet Men's Ash-Lead Beanie Free Pattern for winter - Knot My Designs

Men’s Ash-Lead Beanie

As already mentioned in men’s mesh scarf,  the real challenge for making products for elder people is the choice of colour and usage of the item. Close knit items are always preferred when making a winter wear for men.

With safe colours as shades of grey, brown, blue, and green, and black already in my mind, I chose slate or ash colour (i.e. shade of grey) for making a beanie. Since the colour is rich, the pattern can be simple to maintain the balance. It can also be worn as a beanie-scarf set. The men’s Wavy Scarf (coming in next post) and men’s Ash-Lead Beanie can be paired together. Though they represent different shades of grey, it can still be complimented with a white-colored sweater. The richness of the colour makes it suitable for a middle-aged adult man too.

Process:

The beanie is the basic beanie with different gauge and thickness of wool. Though the pattern is simple double crochet stitched beanie, the thickness of the wool gives a different look.
The beanie height is 9.5″ and hat circumference is 23-24″. It gives a slouchy effect but that depends on the size of the head of the customer.

Body:-

R1: Started with a magic circle, and 12 Double Crochet stitches (DC), join at the beginning. Total 12 DC.

R2: Ch 2, *2 DC in each DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 24 DC.

R3: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 36 DC.

R4: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 2 DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 48 DC.

R5: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 3 DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 60 DC.

Note: The total counts should be greater than 60 for any adult hat. It depends on the yarn, chosen crochet hook and your strength applied in each stitch.

R6: Ch 2, *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 4 DC*; repeat *-*, join at the beginning. Total 72 DC.

R7: DC in each DC, join at the beginning. Total 72 DC.

R8-R13: Repeat R7.

R14: Single Crochet (SC) in each DC for edging.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height for an adult man hat: 9.5″
  • Circumference: 23″-24″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • For edging, you can use fur, Crab Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC) or Slip Stitch of same or contrasting colours.
  • One line of contrast colour edging – White, Creme, Maroon, lighter shades of blue, lime, yellow.

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Men's Mesh Scarf Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Men’s Mesh Scarf

Color, patterns, texture and overall combination in clothes can really bring a lot of difference to a person, either making him look more attractive or dull. What more, it can enhance your features and make you look younger or look stout and even old. The challenge is not to drift oneself by the current of fashion, but to design for your audience that ranges from a younger to an older generation. Shades of grey, brown, blue, green and white, and black are well-proven colours that go well with men across all ages.

The customer choice of colours is always considered first. But what if you are stuck with pastel shades in your palette? How can you bring freshness in the product? That’s when the texture of the yarn and the pattern defines the novelty of your product. I brought this shiny soft brown yarn and started my search for a particular stitch that will fulfil my vision. A combination of mud brown pastel shade textured yarn, and beautiful mesh pattern brings novelty to this crochet men’s Mesh Scarf from KnotMyDesigns.

Process:

In my early days of crocheting, I used to follow YouTube videos to learn the pattern before I got comfortable with written instructions. Meladora’s Creation has been my favourite then and now. When I was looking for a scarf pattern which has a closer stitch and does not represent simple straight single crochet or double crochet stitches, I stumbled upon Mens MeshMen’scarf by Meladora’s Creation. It is very easy to follow.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 70″
  • Width: 7″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • If you are using this as a female scarf then-
  • Add a line of tassels to the ends of both sides along the width. 4 Tassels at the corners will also work. You can reduce the size of the scarf as tassels will add another 10″.
  • Attach pom-poms to each of the corners.
  • The tassels or pompoms colour should be of the base colour or any contrast colour. Shades of white, golden, silver, brown, creme, mustard will add the beauty.
  • Pom-poms and tassels can be of wool, faux fur, ribbons, plastic, resin etc. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • The long length edging, you can have a Crab Stitch, Single Crochet, Slip Stitch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Black-Grey Crochet Willow Beanie Free Pattern for an adult man - Knot My Designs

Willow Beanie

Can you impress anyone? Of course, you can. But how easy it is to impress your husband (your best critique) when it is about fashion. Well, I passed that test very well.

My hubby wanted a beanie, but not just any beanie. He was very particular that it has to be interesting yet not tacky; carried a matured look yet not make him look older than he really is. I said done! (with a confident smile). Because I knew it was not difficult, but not at all an easy task too. In a few words, he was asking me to blend the latest in fashion with subtlety for him.

Going by the safe colours approach, I decided to use Black yarn. I had a lot of other questions, should I use the different colour as stripes in between? Should I maintain only one base colour and choose a creative pattern? Most importantly, the beanie shouldn’t lose the main purpose i.e. protect the head and ear from cold breeze. I started putting my thoughts together trying to visualise what it would look like. After many unsuccessful attempts, I thought of starting with one pattern.

But I still had a lot of other questions. Should I use a different colour as few stripes in between; or should I maintain only one base colour and choose a creative pattern? Most importantly, the beanie shouldn’t lose the main purpose i.e. protect the head and ear from cold breeze.

I liked Amy Depew – The Laughing Willow – Deeply Textured Hat pattern. It gives a willow effect to the hat. I chose to combine grey colour yarn in between to give an active look. The pattern follows a series of Double Crochet (DC) for creating the base and then following the alternate Front Post Treble Crochet (FPTRC) and Double Crochet (DC). I wanted to have a complete willow flow from the beginning. Thus, I started creating alternative sequential FPTRC and DC from the starting.

And guess what, he really loved the willow beanie, just the way he wanted.

Process:

Starting with Magic Circle, DC 12 times and Join with Slip Stitch (SL ST).

R1: Ch 2, (DC, FPTRC) in each DC, join on top with SL ST -> 12 DC, 12 FPTRC.

R2: ch 2, *(FPTRC, FPTRC,) in DC, DC in FPTRC*, repeat *-*, join on the top with SL ST -> 24 FPTRC, 12 DC.

R3: ch 2, *(DC, FPTRC) on FPTRC, DC on FPTRC, FPTRC on DC*, repeat *-*, join on the top with SL ST -> 24 DC, 24 FPTRC.

R4: ch 2, *2 FPTRC on DC, DC on next FPTRC, (FPTRC on DC, DC on next FPTRC)3 times*, repeat *-*, join on the top with SL ST -> 24 DC, 30 FPTRC.

R5: ch 2, *(DC, FPTRC) on FPTRC, FPTRC on DC, (DC on FPTRC, FPTRC on DC) 3 times*, repeat *-*, join to the top with SL ST -> 30 DC, 30 FPTRC.

R6: ch 2, *2 FPTRC on DC, DC on next FPTRC, (FPTRC on DC, DC on next FPTRC)4 times*, repeat *-*, join on the top with SL ST -> 30 DC, 36 FPTRC.

R7: ch 2, *(DC, FPTRC) on FPTRC, FPTRC on DC, (DC on FPTRC, FPTRC on DC) 4 times*, repeat *-*, join to the top with SL ST -> 36 DC, 36 FPTRC.

R8: ch 2, *FPTRC on DC, DC on FPTRC*, repeat *-*, join to the top with SL ST -> 36 DC, 36 FPTRC.

R9: ch 2, *DC on FPTRC, FPTRC on DC*, repeat *-*, join to the top with SL ST -> 36 DC, 36 FPTRC.

Repeat R8 and R9 with the black yarn till you reach row 12.

Change the yarn to Gray.Repeat R9 and R8. [Check the link to change the yarn ->Happy Berry Crochet – Joining the round with new colour]

Change the yarn to Black. Repeat R9 and R8.

Change the yarn to Gray. Repeat R9 and R8.

Change the yarn to Black. Repeat R9.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height for an adult man hat: 9.5″
  • Circumference: 23″-24″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • For edging, you can use fur, Crab Stitch, Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC) or Slip Stitch of same or contrasting colours.
  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Irregular Striped Scarf Free Pattern for an adult man - Knot My Designs

Irregular Striped Scarf

I wanted to make a Scarf and a Hat set, suitable for an adult man, and match with Knit Style Beanie. It could also be complemented with Men’s Suede jacket that the customer usually wears to the office. The idea to make a striped style, struck me when I was browsing online for scarves in the colour combination of Black, Grey and White colour. This colour combination makes any wearable stylish while providing a professional look too.

Style Tip: Whenever you are gifting or making any clothing accessory to a male client, always use the safe colour approach for men. Black, grey, white, blue, green, brown, and beige/nude colours are safe colours for men.

Process:

The pattern is simple. It is worked on horizontally. Starting with the chain of 320 or above, you can achieve the length of the 65″ or more.

Half Double Crochet (HDC) stitch on every row using the Back loop only. To get the irregularity in the colour sequence, select every row with the different colour (grey, white, black). No two simultaneous rows have the same colour. At the end, sew the leftover yarn that is laying around.

To hide the inconsistency, you can slip stitch or single crochet with black yarn.

For additional styling, you can add tassels at the end of both sides.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Length: 65+”
  • Width: 6″.

Optional Alterations:-

  • Add a line of tassels to the ends of both sides along the width. 4 Tassels at the corners will also work. You can reduce the size of the scarf as tassels will add another 10″.
  • Attach pom-poms to each of the corners.
  • The tassels or pompoms colour should be of the base colour or any contrast colour. Shades of white, golden, silver, brown, creme, mustard will add the beauty.
  • Pom-poms and tassels can be of wool, faux fur, ribbons, plastic, resin etc. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
  • The long length edging, you can have a Crab Stitch, Single Crochet, Slip Stitch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Basic Black Beanie Free Pattern for any adult - Knot My Designs

Basic Black Beanie

We all have a favourite colour that complements us the most and we love to wear it. Blue is what I love. But one particular colour that never goes wrong and could be found in everyone’s wardrobe is Black. If you look around then you will notice that every 2nd or 4th person is sporting that colour as an accessory or as an apparel. Black is the saver for anyone that needs a last-minute decision on winter outfit for any occasion. I felt the same when five customers reached out to me requesting for a black beanie.

What more can I think that trying out the basic black beanie for them but with a twist? Ah, there’s nothing more interesting than extending the limits of being basic.

Process:

For me, this was a beginner’s attempt to learn and to make a basic beanie. I thought of making a unisex beanie suitable for all ages and group. I learned from Happy Berry Crochet – Simple Beanie.

Base:-

Starting with 12 Double crochet (DC) with a magic circle, I continued increasing 12 counts on every row till I reach row 6 to get a total count of 72 DC based on the circumference required for an adult woman’s hat. I continued increasing the beanie’s length up to 9″ based on the customer gender and age.

R1: Start with a magic circle, CH 2 and 12 DC; join with slip stitch (SL ST) at the 1st DC. Total 12 DC.

R2: Ch 2, *2DC in every DC; repeat *-*; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 24 DC.

R3: Ch 2, *2DC, DC; repeat *-*; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 36 DC.

R4: Ch 2, *2DC, DC, DC; repeat *-*; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 48 DC.

R5: Ch 2, *2DC, DC, DC, DC; repeat *-*; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 60 DC.

R6: Ch 2, *2DC, DC, DC, DC, DC; repeat *-*; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 72 DC.

[check the diameter of the base. It should be 6 – 6.5cm. if not then increase the row and the total DC count.]

R7: Ch 2, DC in every DC; join with SL ST in the 1st DC. Total 72 DC.

R8 and above: Repeat R7 to get the height of the hat 9.5″-10″.

For an adult man’s hat, I continued increasing 12 counts on every row till I reach row 6/7 to get a total count of 72/84 DC. The height of the hat is 9.5″ based on the customer gender and age.

Edging:-

And lastly, added a row of single crochet stitch using brown wool to give a defined edging.

Caution Section:-

  1. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn vary the diameter of the base.
  2. The crochet hook recommended vs the crochet hook used defines the design.
  3. for the slouchy or loose beanie, the crochet hook should be larger than the recommended.
  4. Concentrate on the base diameter of the beanie and increase or decrease the rows. Generally, for any adult beanie 60-84, DC is suitable.
  5. The total number of stitches per row is different for SC, HDC, DC etc.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height for an adult woman’s hat: 9″
  • Circumference for an adult woman’s hat: 20″-22″
  • Height for an adult man’s hat: 9.5″
  • Circumference for an adult man’s hat: 22″-24″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. Link to make a pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give a more feminine touch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
