Who is cRAfterChick?

Niki cRAfterChick.com So who is cRAfterChick anyway?

Welcome  to cRAfterChick.com!  My name is Niki and I have Rheumatoid Arthritis among a flurry of other medical issues.  Most people online know me from my online community, RA Chicks which this crafty blog’s title is a play on those words meet craft. Dealing with Rheumatoid Arthritis can be hard but one thing I won’t let it take from me is my crafting.  I am 33 now and live in Clearwater Florida.  I’ve been blessed with some wonderful nephews and nieces that I love making things for.

I am all about crochet right now and wanted a place to share my projects and patterns that I make along the way with you all.  I’m definitely no professional. All my patterns here at cRAfterChick.com are free for your use.  All I ask is that if you want to sell items made from patterns or share on your website that you give me credit for the pattern or any pictures you share.   I hope you like some of my designs.  Please feel free to try them out and let me know what you think!

Happy crafting! <3

Easy Peasy Baby / Infant Sized (Newborn- 3 Months) Double Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern Notes

Project requires:
Medium to normal weight yarn (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use baby yarn for extra soft beanie hats too! Just remember if using less ply yarn you may have to work with double strand to make up density lost.)
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern (US crochet stitches):
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet (US)

Pattern Instructions:

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic circle ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

Round 1: In a magic circle ring, ch 2 (does not count as a first dc throughout pattern as I use this to make a more seamless appearance in my hats) and place 10 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing 2 dc in first st and 2 dc in each of the following 9 st around. Join with sl st in top of beginning st. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before making *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next st.* Repeat  *  pattern around for following 18 st. Join with sl st in top of beginning st. (30 dc)
Round 4 -9: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in each of the following 29 st around. Join with sl st in top of beginning st. (30 dc)
Round 10: Ch 1 before making 1 sc in first st and each of the following 29 st around. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (30 sc)

Cut yarn leaving a short tail to finish off the project. Pull tail through and weave in ends with your large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle before cutting off any extra length left behind to fasten off hat.
All done! :)

Want a trim or contrast color? You can easily add a contrast trim by adding an additional round of sc to end of hat in new yarn color or for a wider trim, subtract one dc round from Round 4-9 then add that to the end after in between sc rows in contrast color.  The rounds of sc give a more defined color contrast line.

The sky is the limit on possibilities or ideas to make each your own, unique and special from stripes to adding features or appliques etc.  Drop by our free pattern section to find some of cRAfterChick’s ideas to make your project extra fun or special.
