Written Instructions

Making the Crown (top of beanie)

Notes: ch 3 = 1 dc st

Use Pewter Yarn and 5.0mm hook.

To start any sized baby beanie: ch 4, sl st into 1st ch to form a ring.

Rnd 1: ch 3, (working over yarn tail) 15 dc into ring, sl st into top of ch-3. (16 sts)

Rnd 2: ch 3, * 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into next st, rep from * around to last st, 2 dc into last st, sl st into top of ch-3. (24 sts)

Rnd 3: ch 3, * 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into each of next 2 sts, rep from * around to the last 2 sts, 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into next st, sl st into top of ch-3. (32 sts)

Rnd 4: ch 3, * 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into each of next 3 sts, rep from * around to the last 3 sts, 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into each of next 2 sts, sl st into top of ch-3. (40 sts)

For Newborn to 3 mth old sized beanie, at this point skip to Rnd 8 to continue onto making the sides. For next size up continue on with Rnd 5.

Rnd 5: ch 3, * 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into each of next 4 sts, rep from * around to the last 4 sts, 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into each of the next 3 sts, sl st into top of ch-3. (48 sts)

For 3 mth to 6 mth old sized beanie, at this point skip to Rnd 8 to continue onto making the sides. For next size up continue on with Rnd 6.

Rnd 6: ch 3, * 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into each of next 5 sts, rep from * around to the last 5 sts, 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into each of the next 4 sts, sl st into top of ch-3. (56 sts)

For 6 mth to 9 mth old sized beanie, at this point skip to Rnd 8 to continue onto making the sides. For next size up continue on with Rnd 7.

Rnd 7: ch 3, * 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into each of next 6 sts, rep from * around to the last 6 sts, 2 dc into next st, 1 dc into each of the next 5 sts, sl st into top of ch-3. (64 sts)

For 9 mth to 12 mth old sized beanie, continue onto Rnd 8.

Making the Sides

Rnd 8: ch 3, 1 dc into each st around to the end, sl st into top of ch-3.

For all Following Rounds: Repeat Rnd 8 until you have the length you require. It’s okay if you don’t know what length you want, you can always fold the beanie up to make it look like a cuff if it’s too long. Or you can use my rough guide below.

Newborn to 3 mths: Rep Rnd 8 (4 more times)

3 mths to 6 mths: Rep Rnd 8 (5 more times)

6 mths to 9 mths: Rep Rnd 8 (6 more times)

9 mths to 12 mths: Rep Rnd 8 (7 more times)

Finish off.

Pull center yarn tail tight and weave in yarn tails with a yarn needle.

Optional Edging

Join Eggshell Yarn into st where you last finished off in by making a sl st.

Rnd 1: ch 1, 1 sc into same sp as ch-1 and into each st around, sl st into 1st sc to join.

Finish off.

Weave in yarn tails with a yarn needle.

Bear Ears (Make 2)

With Eggshell Yarn and 5.0mm hook: ch 4, sl st into 1st ch to form a ring.

Rnd 1: ch 1, (working over yarn tail as you go) 8 sc into ring, sl st into 1st sc to join. (8 sts)

Pull center yarn tail tight.

Rnd 2: ch 1, 2 sc into same sp as ch-1 and into each st around, sl st into 1st sc to join. (16 sts)

Rnd 3: ch 1, 1 sc into same sp as ch-1 and into each st around, sl st into 1st sc to join. (16 sts)

Leave a long tail to sew with and finish off.

Using a yarn needle weave center yarn tail into the back of the ear.

Thread the long yarn tail that is attached to the ear through a yarn needle.

Place your beanie on a doll or a similar sized bowl, can or whatever you have.

Sew your ear/s wherever you want them to be. Sew 4 sts of the ear to the place you want it to be.

Finish off.

Candy BabiesThis review is by M.J. Walters: For those who want something fun to crochet for babies (without making the same old boring pastel stuff) – you have to check out this book…It’s awesome!

Totally fun and hip coats and sweaters, ugg-style baby booties with a matching hat and jacket, crocheted dresses, even a kimono-styled dress and sweater set! Totally fun and worth every penny!

    Hi Paula!
    Firstly thank you for being so generous with your knowledge and patterns!
    I have the wool to make the toddler boots – the Lincraft Veronica Chunky and was wondering if I could use the same to make this beanie?
    Thanks in anticipation.
    Margie ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Paula says:

      Hi there Margie, yes I think that yarn will work with the beanie pattern. Just check that the circumference is right after you do the increase rounds to make the crown to be sure you get the right size. All the best, Paula

  2. Amy says:

    How could I make this for a three or four year old?

    • Paula says:

      Hi Amy, you just need to add more increase rounds to the crown to make the beanie a bigger size and a few extra rounds to the sides to make it longer.

  4. Rachel says:

    Hi Paula,

    The video tutorial only shows how to create the ears, is there another video that shows how to create the beanie?

    BTW – I previously made the puff stitch baby booties and they turned out great! Thank you.

    • Paula says:

      Hi Rachel, there is a link within that video tutorial that takes you to the beanie video tutorial.

  5. Cathrin says:

    Is there another video that shows how to sew on the ears?

    Thanks

    I am trying to sew dog ears on a beanie, is there a video sewing on dog ears?

    Thanks again

    • Paula says:

      This is the only video tutorial I have on how to attach ears.
