BREEZYBOT BABY BEANIE

This is the base of many of my newborn hats! Slight variations can be made to leave space for ribbon or add ears, puffballs, a brim, or other details!

Ch 4, sl st to join to make a loop, ch 1
Rd 1 - working in center of loop, sc 9, hdc 1 (10)
Working in all back loops for the rest of the pattern:
Rd 2 - hdc 2 in next 9 st, dc 2 in last st (20)
Rd 3 - [dc 1, dc 2 in next st] repeat around (30)
Rd 4 - [dc 2, dc 2 in next st] repeat around (40)
Rd 5 - [dc 9, dc 2 in next st] repeat around (44)

    1. Liz - there are a lot of resources around the web to help with crochet terms and abbreviations. This one helped me a lot when I was starting out! http://www.crochetnmore.com/123basics.htm

      You can also look search on youtube for some wonderful, and very helpful videos, too! Happy crocheting!

  12. I made this pattern and it whipped up quickly which is great, but I was wondering if you had instructions for older babies? Great newborn size, but I would like to be able to make some for as they grow.

  13. I LOVE this pattern it is very simple and looks great, I love that you don't join the round. However, I too am wondering if you have any way to make lager sizes. I want to make hats for my daughter for the winter, the problem is one will be 24 months old and the other will be 3-6 months old(she is expected to arrive july 3rd). I was also wondering if you had a pattern for the bow on the pink and black hat?

  14. i love the way you make your baby's hats , i just made one following your instructions and loved the size just perfect, i only added one more row where its 1 dc in each stitch so itd be a bit longer . thank you so much for sharing/ teaching us your technique

  15. Hi, I made this beanie up in one night. I love that its so quick and easy. Unfortunately, it was too big for my 12 month old daughter. But I crocheted two strands of 8ply wool together and used a 7mm hook so that probably explains why it was too big. So for those of you who want bigger beanies, you could try that :)

    Thanks for sharing your pattern!

  18. Do these adorable hats fit the 18" American girl dolls? thanks in advance.

    1. Hm, I don't know! This pattern is for newborns with a head circumference of 13-14”. I think American Girl dolls have a 12.5-13” head circumference. I would probably do the same pattern with a 4.75 hook, but it depends on how right/loose you crochet! :)

      Let me know how it turns out of you try it!
