Mens Crochet Ball Cap

Mens Crochet Ball Cap

My buddy requested a mens crochet ball cap, I normally don’t take orders because I enjoy making patterns more then following patterns, but sometimes when receiving orders it’s a great opportunity for me to make an order while at the same time writing out a pattern, only problem with this is that orders can take a little longer then usual.

This hat was a request by a friend, and as much as I procrastinate and try to create the perfect piece, I’m sure my friend doesn’t mind the wait. I originally made ‘a hat for him‘ but this was not the type of hat my friend wanted so I’m editing my original pattern to make this mens crochet ball cap.

Using the next alt colour, count off 21 sts at the front, use the fpdc stitches as a guide (they should line up the same as a baseball cap)

    Love this hat. Wondering if this would be suitable as a chemo hat in cotton. My young friend (33 yo) has breast cancer and I think a funky pink cotton ball cap would be just the thing to perk her up on chemo days. I prefer the brim to brimless hats because summer sun can be brutal on the eyes when you are not feeling well.

    Why doesn’t my brim look as big as your brim? It looks like a tiny flap, not a brim at all. I’m using worsted weight yarn and a j hook. I followers your pattern to the letter. I’ve never had this problem before.

      I don’t have anything specific but you really could use any pattern just try to find a yarn that is super soft. I tend to use baby yarns because of their softness.
