The Linked DC Beanie Crochet Pattern uses a variation of the regular double crochet. It creates a much tighter, solid piece of fabric. Perfect for a nice, warm beanie!
This hat is the 9th pattern in the Crochet Along for a Cause. We are making 1 hat per week to donate to a cancer center, school, or homeless shelter for 12 weeks. There’s always time to join! You can find all the details and hat patterns HERE.
