You can crochet a colorful beanie masterpiece for women, men and teens with self-striping yarn and this easy pattern. You can also make a scrap-happy version with leftover yarn from other projects.

--The 5-Square Beanie is a step-by-step crochet hat pattern for worsted-weight (#4 Medium) yarn. You make five squares and then you have a choice of two ways to put them together: with sleek single-crochet or bumpy bobble-stitch. This hat (approximately 20 in./51 cm to 21 in./53 cm around) will fit most teens and adults.

The 6-page PDF pattern also includes a chart of the square motif, a tutorial on a special finishing technique and links to pages on my website for crocheters who want more information on the stitches used.

Oh, just to clarify -- this listing is for the instructions to make the 5-Square Beanie. The actual hats are sold in other sections of my Etsy shop, http://www.etsy.com/shop/HatsbyElvee .

The pattern is copyrighted and may not be duplicated, except for personal use, or re-published in any form or media. However, you are welcome to sell the hats you make using this pattern.

Frequently asked questions about HatsbyElvee

To find your hat size, simply measure your head all the way around above your eyebrows.
Extra Small = 20 in./51 cm
Small = 21 in./53 cm
Medium = 22 in./56 cm
Large = 23 in./58 cm
Extra Large = 24 in./61 cm
My hats are made and stored in smoke- and pet-free environments (not because I dislike pets but due to my own allergies....)
Upon completion, hats are washed in hypoallergenic detergent.
Only if you live in Texas, in which case sales tax of 8.25 percent (the rate in San Antonio) will be added to your order.
Usually, but not always.

For example, you might want three red buttons added to a black beret. Or a green button subbed for a purple button. Or a button removed from a hat that has one.

I'll gladly make these changes to create the perfect hat for you.

I can also make a hat longer (if I have more of the same yarn) or shorter. I can usually tighten the bottom edge to make it fit a smaller head.

However, it's unlikely that I'll be able to make a hat bigger around, alas.

Just tell me what modifications you want, and I'll let you know if they're doable.
