I have a friend who is crazy in love with all of her animals. And I have to admit that she has some of the best and sweetest animals I’ve ever known. 🙂
Her sweet wire-haired dachshund named Daria just had 2 of the most adorable puppies! My friend saw a picture of some sweet puppies in tiny crocheted beanies and knew that she had to have some for her new puppies.
I found this free pattern for premie baby beanies and adjusted it just a little for the new puppies. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn and a G/4mm hook to stitch up the beanies. The only adjustment I made to the pattern was to stop after 10 rounds.
By using a larger hook, you can adjust the finished size of the beanies. The larger the hook, the larger the beanie. The pattern shows the difference in size using 4 different size hooks.
Here is the sweet tiny little girl!
Unfortunately, even though these beanies are super tiny, they are still too big for the new little puppies! 😳 My friend took out several rows on the beanies so they would sit on their tiny little heads for a photo shoot. 😊 They will have to grow into the other beanies later – but they are so adorable!!! ❤️
Here’s a closer picture of the beanies. I forgot to measure them but I think they are about 3 – 4 inches across and 3 – 4 inches from top to bottom.
This pattern was designed to make beanies for precious babies born a little too early. They work up super fast and would be a great donation for your local NICU – just check with them first before donating.
