This is a very basic beanie pattern. It is super cute on newborns! Great for baby's first pictures, a quick handmade gift or charitable giving. This hat will measure about 13" in circumference and about 5" (little less) crown to brim.

                Yarn Needle

* At the end of each round join with a slip st in the first st *

Rnd 1: Magic Loop, ch.2, 12 dc, pull loop tight

  5. How do you make he hat bigger for a 3-6 month old size?

    ReplyDelete
  6. I would repeat round add four more stitches evenly in another increase row and add another row or two to the total length. 3-6 month is usually sized at 14 to 15 in circumference and 5.5 to 6 inches crown to brim.

  9. How many oz of yarn does it take per beanie or how many beanies can you make per skein of yarn (3.5 oz)?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I can get 3 beanies out of one Impeccable Charisma skein. Not sure on the ounces.

  11. I have level 6 yarn, is it all right to use a size N hook or will that make it too loose?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sara, it shouldn't be too loose, but the hat will be a little bigger.

  17. I wanted to thank you for making this tutorial. My daughter is just starting to crochet and I am trying it again after years of not crocheting. Your tutorial was very helpful to both of us.

  18. I love this little tutorial/pattern and am very grateful for it and all the rest of the information on this site. I just have one question, where do I find an 'L' hook. I went through all my kazillions hooks and found not one 'L'. I went to Wal-Mart today and still no 'L'. What's up with that?

    1. It just depends on what the store carries. Try a Michael's, Hobby Lobby or AC Moore. Walmart's supply is usually limited. Also try eknittingneedles.com Great prices there!

  21. I just found your blog and patterns. Thank you so much for your wonderful sharing! I'm presently working on a baby blanket that is taking me forever. I said I would not start another project until I'd finished the blanket.... but I think I'll take a break from the blanket and make your darling hat. :-)

  31. I have a k crochet hook. Will that make the hat too small? About how many inches diameter should the first round be? Thanks!

  32. I am very new at crochet so I was very happy to find your video. I want to make these beanies to donate to a local hospital here in the Chicago area. I'm not great at following patterns yet so I was looking for something easy to get me started. Your video is so easy to follow that I'm now really excited to get started on making some precious little hats to donate. Thank you so much for taking the time to make this video. :-)

  33. I am hoping I can follow the directions and actually make what looks like a hat. I am saving you in my bookmarks so when I can get my computer to talk to me again I can watch and listen to your video.

  34. This is adorable and I would like very much to make it but I need circumference of 20 - 21in. How many chains would I have to add. Help would be appreciated. Thank You

    ReplyDelete
  35. Just take the circumference you need and divide it by 3.14. This will I've you the crown diameter you need for that circumference. The increase evenly in each round until you reach that diameter. Stop increasing, and just work even rounds until the hat is your desired length from brim to crown.

  36. This pattern is awesome! Thanks so much for posting it...even though it was several years back. Anyway, I am busting my small stash of chunky yarn for the babies at the local hospital. Thanks again.
