When we began our projects for Christmas-at-Sea, a crocheted hat for men didn't seem likely until Celia found a pattern that gives crochet a masculine twist.
The Chunky Watch Cap is a free pattern included with Lion Brand Wool Ease yarn. What's especially interesting is that the ribbed part looks knitted, but is actually a series of chain, single crochet and double crochet added after the upper cap is completed.
If you'd like to make this Watch Cap, we'll have the yarn and the pattern at the next meetings.
You can also check out the Lion Brand website for free patterns. Here's another unisex crochet stocking cap Lion Brand free patterns. Order the yarn for this project from their website and you get 15% off.
