Head Full of Daisies Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern
free crochet pattern from cRAfterChick.com
There were four students being narrator’s in the classroom play. I didn’t want them to feel left out on the costume hats I made all the actors in the play so I went with nature related hats. This pattern is really quick and simple as I was in a time crunch. It is definitely beginner friendly. All you have to know is how to work in the round. Link below to instructions if you don’t know how to use magic circle. P.S. I love daisies 😀

Hat Base: in main color yarn
Use Easy Peasy Crochet Beanie Size of your choice
Once you have completed your beanie for the base you are ready to start on making your own head full of daisies beanie hat!
Note: If you are going to do this in newborn / infant/ up to 1 year old sizes, switch to a G hook for the features instead of the J to scale them down in size.
Round 1: Starting with yellow / gold yarn in a magic circle ch 1 before placing 12 sc. Pull circle closed and sl st in the top of the first sc in round. (ch 1 does not count as a st) (12 sc)
Round 2: Ch 1 before placing *1 sc in st, ch 1 * and repeat process around until you are back at beginning. Sl st in to the top of the 1st st in round. ( 12 sc, 12 ch-1 sp) Fasten off your yellow / gold yarn. I leave a short tail on mine to use it to attach the daisy in place during assembly process.
Round 3: Taking your white yarn (or other flower color if you so desire) and sl st in to the one of the ch-1 sp. Ch 12 before sl st back into same ch-1 sp, *sl st in to next ch-1 sp, ch 12 before sl st back in to same ch-1 sp* repeat this process until you sl st back in the original ch-1 sp.
Leave tail long enough to attach your daisy to hat once all are completed if you fastened off the yellow/ gold completely in previous step and want to secure it with the white yarn. If you already left tails from flower center fasten off white.
Repeat this pattern with rest of daisies until you have:
Teen – Adult : 6 daisies
Toddler – Child / Youth: 4 daisies
Newborn to 1 year old: 4 daisies done with a “G” hook instead of “J” hook pattern calls for above.
Place your daisy flowers on the hat where you want them situated. I often pin mine in place to get a good feel of the end result before I start tying them on. With these just a few double knots and loops through to secure it works out just fine. Not a lot of stitching required. Once you have secured all your flowers in place, turn the hat inside out and finish off all left over tails or ends of yarn. Turn right side out again.
All done! You have one Head Full of Daisies Hat to show off. I’m not normally a girly girl but I love how this one turned out.
Here are some of the pictures I took to show how it looks worn and from different directions when completed:
