You can crochet this kids beanie with or without a cuff; adding a cuff is simple by adding on more rows at the end and then turning it up.
This pattern is worked in continuous rounds which means there is no joining at the end of rounds. It finishes off with a slip stitch edging to give it a neat finish.
