A few months ago my sister liked this beanie I made for a friend and said that maybe she would even wear one like it – she’s not much of hat person. 😊 I asked her what color she would like. She wasn’t sure and then promptly forgot she even mentioned it…
About a month or so ago, I decided to make her not one beanie but two! She is a die-hard Purdue fan and goes to all the home games – which can get downright cold at times in Indiana!! So the first one is made with Red Heart Super Saver yarn in black and gold. Boiler Up!
And because I knew she wouldn’t want to wear that one all the time, I made her another beanie with Caron Simply Soft yarn in grey heather and white.
You can find the pattern for the beanie here. The beanie pattern includes instructions for newborn through adult sizes. I changed the last 2 rows to give it more of a ribbed pattern. I crocheted 13 rows beginning with 2 rows of my starting color (gold or grey) and then alternating colors every row. After the 13 rows, I added 2 more rows of my starting color alternating the Front Post Double Crochet (fpdc) stitch with a regular Double Crochet stitch all the way around. The link to the pattern for the flower is in this Crochet Cloche Hat post – which is also a very cute hat!
You can change the flower out for a bow like I did on these baby beanies or leave it off completely for a boy’s hat. Or make them in a solid color instead of stripes.
These beanies work up very quickly. They would make great Christmas gifts! 🎄
