You may make such a hat either with knitting needles or with a crochet. With the help of them you’ll be able to make your hat look stylish. Some needlewomen recommend using a mixture of threads – thin, wool, volume and acryl thread. It is important for the crochet to be appropriate for the chosen yarn. This means that a crochet should be a bit thicker, approximately 1-1,5 mm. thicker.
The process of crocheting the beard for the hat is very similar to the previous one, that was carried out with the help of knitting needles. You also need to make 65 chain stitches and choose a pattern for the beard. If you’re an experienced needlewoman, you may experiment. We suggest you crocheting the first row with single crochets. The second one should be crocheted the following way: 1 SC and 2 DC. You crochet them in turns till the end of the row. The 3rd row is crocheted like the 1st one.
