Free Toddler Sized Double Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern (Fits most one to three year old toddler based on standard US sizing)

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, ch 2 (does not count as a dc throughout pattern as I use this to make a more seamless appearance in my hats) then place 10 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed and join with sl st in top of beginning st in round. (10 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before making  2 dc in 1st st and 2 dc in each of the following 9 st around. Join with sl st in the top of 1st st. (20 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next st.* Repeating * pattern for next 18 st around. Join with sl st in top of 1st st. (30 dc)
Round 4: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next 2 st* Repeating * pattern for next 27 st around. Join with sl st in top of 1st st. (40 dc)
Round 5 -11: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in each of the remaining 39 st around. Join with sl st to top of 1st st. (40 dc)
Round 12: Ch 1 before making 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each of the remaining 39 st around. Join with sl st to top of 1st st. (40 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 5-11 then add that to the end after in between sc rows in contrast color.

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.

  1. Thanks so much!
    I’m going to add you on my blog. I was searching for beanies on Ravelry. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Kim Kingston says:

    I am a little confused. On round 4. At the end of this round it says to join to top chain of chain 3. I can’t seem to find where there was a chain three. Can you help solve this puzzle for me. Thanks

    • Thanks for the find! It should be top of 1st st like in other rounds. Sorry for the confusion. I’m not sure how I missed it before but it I’m glad you found the mixup.

  3. I am a little confused..it says you’re finished after round 12? That isn’t a beanie…how do I make it longer? Thanks.

    • cRAfterChick says:

      If you are using regular weight yarn, a J hook and doing double crochet (US) stitch for pattern as it calls for it will be the perfect size.

  4. I’m using your Easy Peasy Beanie pattern sized for 1-3 year old as the base for a Rapunzel wig. As I’m going along, rows 5-11, it doesn’t seem as if the hat will fit (I just made a hat using size H hook and even the number of stitches for the last increase row is more). What is the finished circumference of the hat? I’ve frogged back to row 4 and wonder if I should add another increase row or switch to an even larger hook? Your advice is appreciated.

    • cRAfterChick says:

      First double check a few things:
      1. You are using a 6.0 mm US crochet hook J/10 or UK 4 as it is called
      2. You are using a normal weight yarn. Less ply yarn like baby yarn or bulky yarn will end up with different results than in pattern. Smaller for less ply and larger for higher ply. If you are using a baby yarn with less ply I recommend doing it in double strand to make up the difference in gauge.
      3. You are making the pattern in US double crochet for dc and not UK dc which is single crochet US.
      If you are doing all the above like in pattern you should not have a problem at all. Next to the youth and teen /women’s sizes I make this one the most for my nieces directly from this pattern. If you are using a H versus J hook like in this pattern on another hat you will most definitely need more stitches as it drastically reduces your gauge on your project.
      If you are still trouble shooting your end result and are following above, you might want to print out this great chart from Ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hat-sizing-chart—newborn-through-mens-sizes You can see how big your increase circle should be on the hat before doing standard rounds around until you reached the required length. I hope this helps.

  5. I love this pattern! I added one more increase to make the diameter of the ciricle 6 inches… because I needed a more specific size…closer to a 2T…this pattern is so variable and easy to adjust…THANKS!!!
