Pattern: Bobble Beard

A few months ago, I was requested one of the lovely bearded beanies. I'd seen them around and thought they were super fun but had never tried making one. After looking around for a decent, free beard pattern and having no such luck, I took it upon myself to make an easy-to-follow pattern.

  • size G hook for women
  • size H hook for men
  • worsted weight yarn
  • scissors
  • darning needle

Stitches/ Abbreviations Used (American terms):
  • Bobble stitch: *yo, insert hook into st, pull up a loop* 3 or 4 times, whichever you perfer. You will have 7 or 9 loops on hook, yo and pull through all loops.
  • ch - chain 
  • sc - single crochet
  • sk - skip
  • slst - slip stitch
  • fo - finish off

  • repeat everything inside the asterisks (**) 
  • one size fits most teens/ adults 

The Pattern:

Row 1: ch 33, sc in 2nd from hook and in each across, ch 1, turn
Row 2: *bobble, sc* across, ch 1, turn (you should have 16 bobble stitches)
Row 3: sc for 6 bobbles (or 12 sc), sk 4 bobbles (or 8 sc), ch 12, sc for 6 bobbles (or 12 sc), ch 1, turn
Row 4: *bobble, sc* until ch 12 space, *bobble, sk next, sc* 4 times, *bobble, sc* across, ch 1, turn
Row 5: sc in each st across, ch 1, turn
Repeat rows 2 and 5 until you have a total of five bobble stitch rows (end with row 2)

For the side straps, ch enough to go over your ears (12-15) and slst to the top of your beard/ first row. slst across the top. ch the same amount as before (12-15) and slst to the bottom of the beard/ end row. FO and weave in ends.
