Easy Peasy Baby / Infant Sized (3- 6 Months) Double Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern Notes
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!)
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends
Abbreviations used in this pattern:
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet
*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, ch 1 (does not count as a first st throughout pattern as I use this to make a more seamless appearance in my hats) then placing 8 sc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed and join with sl st to top of beginning st. (8 sc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in first and 2 dc in each of the following 9 st around. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (16 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before making *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next st.* Repeating * process for next 14 st around. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (24 dc)
Round 4: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next 2 st.* Repeating * pattern for next 21 st around. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (32 dc)
Round 5 -10: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in first st and 1 dc in each of the remaining 31 st around. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (32 dc)
Round 11: Ch 1 and place 1 sc in first st and 1 sc in each of the remaining 31 st around. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (32 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.
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 5-10 then add that to the end after in between sc rows in contrast color.
