Take the crochet beanie hat into summer with this free pattern. Worked from a 100% cotton yarn, this beanie is perfect for summer. The double crochet mesh is a very open stitch that allows for plenty of air circulation. Crochet it using a wool or acrylic yarn for cool weather wear.

Extras:
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
