Picture of Bearded Hat
Winter may be coming to an end, but that doesn't mean the cold is.  This hat is a perfect idea for either men who have already shaved their beard they accumulated during the winter months and feel like they need a replacement, a funny gift for a friend,  or a hat for those cold spring days without having that winter look. 

For those of you who don't know how to crochet but like this hat, it is currently for sale on my etsy page:
