Free Crochet Pattern...Super Dude Hats!


Do you have a super dude that you crochet for?  Here is a simple hat you can make...easy and straight forward, nothing fancy, just a warm and cozy hat that actually covers the ear lobes too!  Working the bottom half of the hat in the back loops gives it subtly textured band too.  This reversible hat has a slightly different looking texture if you turn it inside out too!


It was requested in neutral gray tones, but feel free to choose a favorite color too...striping makes this a great stash busting project too!  This hat fits an adult man...field tested and got the seal of approval!

  1. Hello, I'm having trouble with round 6, specifically the instructions between the *s that calls for 2 hdc in next st, then 2 hdc. What do you mean by the second hdc instruction? Thanks! and I really love your patterns, I've worked many and find them fun and easy!
