Unisex Herringbone Set Free Crochet Pattern

In this post I want to share with you the Unisex Herringbone Set Free Crochet Pattern.  It is hard to find crochet patterns that are just for boys and men so I found a perfect crochet stitch that creates a unique design that can be used for men and women, the Herringbone Half Double Crochet.

In the Herringbone Crochet Set you will find crochet patterns for a Beanie and a Cowl.  You will also find 3 sizes to choose from:  Teen, Small & Large Adult.  The good thing about this crochet pattern is that it can be customized to fit your style, size, and color!  The stitch count is a multiple of 6, so it you want to make a smaller or larger size, you can use the multiple of 6.

As I stated above, the Unisex Herringbone Set Free Crochet Pattern is a great crochet pattern boys, men, and women.  My husband and I modeled the set, so as you can see it fits men and women.  You will find some wonderful versions from my testers of the set at the bottom of this post.

Leave a long tail of 6-10 inches for weaving the top of the hat closed.  You will weave the top of the Beanie closed by using your Tapestry Needle.  

You will go into the 2 loops created by the dc using the long tail you have left.  You will go back and forth weaving the long tail between the 2 loops until you reach the end.  

At the end you will pull the long tail tight, closing the top of the Beanie.  Pull tight and go into the 1st st and create a knot, tying off the long tail.   

If you are having trouble here is the YouTube Video Tutorial showing the process.   

Fasten off and weave in ends.
