Super simple beanie – New free pattern US and UK terms

This is a one size fits most adults pattern, It’s a nice snug fit on a large head, and has a little slouch on a smaller head.

I used 8ply(DK) acrylic and a size 4.5 mm hook, but if you are a tight crocheter I would recommend going up to a 5.5mm hook.
