Easy Peasy Baby / Infant Sized (6- 12 Months) Double Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern Notes

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic 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 2 (does not count as a dc throughout pattern as I use this to make a more seamless appearance in my hats) before placing 8 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed. Join with sl st in the top of beginning st. (8 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before making *2 dc in first st and 2 dc in each of the following 7 st around. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (16 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next st.* Repeat *pattern for next 14 st around. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (24 dc)
Round 4: Ch 2 and make *2 dc in 1st st, 1 dc in next 2 st. Repeat * 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 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.

  1. I’m not sure this can be right – I started this size after making a newborn size, and the crown was hardly any bigger. I’m going to start over with 10dc in the initial row and see what happens….

  2. Quick question – I LOVE your patterns – they are SO easy to follow – but this one looks like the same exact pattern, number of rows and all, as the 3-6 month pattern? Is that correct?

  3. I’m reading through this pattern and the sizes for 3-6 months. I don’t see any difference in the patter at all, for the crown or the length of the finished beanie. Am I missing something? There is a great deal of difference in the head sizes of a 6 month old and a one year old. Thanks! By the way, I LOVE this pattern! :) I make these for donations from my church and they are so quick to work up, even the adult sized ones.

      On the 3-6 month old beanie you are starting with a round of 8 sc versus the 8 dc in first round of 6-12 month old beanie. You can see a great chart for the crown and length needed for different aged hats here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hat-sizing-chart—newborn-through-mens-sizes I use the standard measurements when creating all my hats. Hope this helps!

      • That’s really, extremely helpful! Thank you so much for linking that. I had started your pattern for a newborn and felt it was impossibly small. Compared to that chart I was right on. Thanks for the pattern, I needed a quick and easy hat pattern and this was perfect.

  4. love these they are perfect I have been looking so a simple beanie that I could doll up thank you .. making a hat to look like tinkerbells hair wish me luck … her hair is in a bun so it should be easy
