Easy Crochet Beard Toddler-Adult
This is the easiest crochet beard! After making many different beards I wanted to design a very simple pattern with a great result! You can make this within an hour! The beard is designed for the ends to slip over your ears so you can wear this with any hat you already have. Guaranteed fun and laughs but is also practical to wear skiing, snow blowing the driveway…anything outdoors! Also makes a great Santa beard in white for the holidays!
