My son request an beanie cap just like the ones that Zac Brown wears. Wow, first for me. After 4 attempts and no clue how to figure a pattern, this is my first successful attempt at the beanie. I used Lion Brand, gray...or smokey. The beanie is something that is easy now. I have only been crocheting for approximately 5 weeks. I am self-taught thanks to a 5 minute how-to video on YouTube. Now, I'm afraid that I am forever HOOKED!!!
