Striped Beanie Crochet Hat

Are you looking for a simple beanie for you baby to wear? This is a great little pattern that is able to be crocheted in about 1 hour. There is fantastic colour changing throughout this pattern but you don’t have to change colour if you don’t want to. This pattern was developed by Cathy Cunningham, our Executive Assistant. This pattern is for 1 to 3 year old children.

Style that youngster in your life with a fabulous crochet beanie hat.

Colour changing is up to you. Cathy’s original pattern has 3 colours. You can opt to use one solid colour or even a colour transitioning yarn such as Red Heart Treasure or Eclipse Yarns as well.

Please note that the picture is for an adult size. The pattern has been tested and confirmed accurate for a 1 – 3 year old size by Cathy.

Materials

  • Size G Crochet Hook or 4.5 MM
  • Cathy used Vanna’s Choice Yarn by Lion Brand. You will need only 1 ball of each. You can do a few hats using the same yarn as these hats don’t use up a lot of yarn. You can use any 4ply yarn you prefer.
  • The hat in the picture is using Red Heart Boutique Changes. We used Blue, Grey and White.
