This simple textured and gender-neutral beanie pattern can be finished in two ways: as a snug-fitting beanie or as a slouchy hat. Available in 10 sizes from newborn through adult large, make one for everyone in the family!

The Teen/Adult Small size version of this pattern was the first Weekend Mystery Crochet Along with Underground Crafter. Pattern details were updated after the CAL ended and the mystery was “solved.”

The Teen/Adult Size pattern is available for FREE on my blog HERE.

The free version is supported by advertising on my website. The downloadable PDF for sale on Ravelry includes the full pattern in one printable file without advertisements.
