Crochet Beard Pattern

10 Hand Crafted Ornament Tutorials If you have been following me on Instagram then you know that I have been on a bit of a crochet beard making kick.  With Movember {and November} came this fun fascination with facial hair I guess.  Darcy asked me if I could make him a bearded hat and so the bearded hat making began….
K Hook {6.5 mm}
Worsted Yarn
Yarn needle
ch ~ chain
ss ~ slip stitch
sc ~ single crochet
dc ~ double crochet
st ~ stitch
Here are the instructions to create a child sized beard {for a 5-10 year old}.  For adult sizes just start with a longer chain and add a few more dc to the center of each round.  I used VERY thick brown yarn to give my beard a thick, puffy look.

For the adult beards I attached a button to each end so that the beard could be attached and removed from the beanie at any time. 
These bearded hats are perfect for cold winter weather and winter sports because they keep the whole face warm while outside.
