The wanderlust beanie is designed for those wild at heart individuals who feel called to explore, to travel, and to blaze new trails. I designed this hat with Lion Brand “Heartland” yarn making it soft and cozy, yet lightweight enough for summer evenings. Not only would this beanie serve you well on a camping or hiking trip, it would also make an excellent piece to donate to charitable organizations that provide hats for cancer patients.

The stitch pattern in this beanie is fairly simple, making it an excellent crochet pattern for those who have mastered the basics (single, half-double, and double crochet), and want to play around with them in new ways. While I originally designed this as a men’s beanie, the pattern is just as usable for women. You may want to go down a hook size, as this fits my husband’s 25” head just fine. ;)
