My sweet husband has been so patient with me. For over a year now, he has wanted me to crochet him this hat. He wanted the ribbed look and for it to fold up at the bottom. So, here I am, 13 months later actually making his hat!
Men’s crochet isn’t usually something I do, simply because I have more girls in my life to crochet for. My mom is a knitter and makes plenty of hats and mittens and scarves for my brothers, so they are covered. But my girls, I like giving them beautiful crocheted items.
This men’s hat is so wonderfully warm and comfortable! I love Lion Brand’s Woolspun Yarn. (Unfortunately, this yarn has been discontinued, but here is a list of substitutes.)And once you get a couple skeins, make this hat! I’m sure there is at least one man in your life who will love it!

Thankyou for sharing this hat pattern , it worked up a treat
You’re welcome! I’m so glad!
Hi, I’m wondering about sewing up the top. It seems like after row 44, slip stitch 1 to 44, it will be like a cylinder. How do you recommend sewing the top? Thanks!
I just gathered it at the top and sewed it closed in an “X” pattern. Then I turn it inside out, so the sewing is on the inside.
