The Back-Country Beanie works up really quick, making it perfect for quick-gifts or charity giving!
The pattern is worked as a flat rectangle then seamed down the side and cinched at the top.
The Back-Country Beanie looks great with or without a pom and is totally gender-neutral!

Herringbone Double Crochet (hbdc): Yarn over, insert hook into indicated stitch, yarn over, pull through loop – and through the first loop on your hook (2 loops on hook), yarn over, pull through one loop on hook (2 loops on hook), yarn over pull through both loops.
Back Country Beanie
Best Fit 20″-21″ head circumference.
Row 1: Hbdc in 3rd ch from hook, and each ch across, ch2 turn (15).
Row 2: Hbdc in each st across, ch2 turn (15).
Repeat Row 2 until desired length for circumference.
For the Adult Small it took me 23 rows for 19″ length.
Leave long tail for seaming together and closing the hat after final row.
Fold the hat in half, lengthwise, and line up the stitches to whip stitch closed.
Turn the hat inside out to keep the seam inside.
Weave in all ends, and your pom pom if desired, and you’re done!
There you have it! Your very own Back-Country Beanie!
