La Mecha – Free Crochet Pattern

La Mecha Beanie

This is a great hat to learn sizing and increasing because it is constructed with the simplest of stitches: the single crochet. The merino wool creates a beanie that is warm without being bulky. So, grab your hook and yarn and whip up one of these hats to add a splash of color to your favorite outfit or a last-minute gift for someone amazing in your life.
