Oh so many Beanies! ~ Crochet Pattern

I love making beanies! I'm always experimenting with them, trying to make them with different stitches, with different embellishments, and of course different colours!!
This beanie is my latest 'experiment' :)


What You'll Need:
4.50 Crochet Hook
Tapestry/Wool Needle
Scissors
8ply Yarn

Instructions:
Start by making a Slip Knot. Crochet 8 Chain Stitches. Then push your crochet needle back through the sixth stitch and make a Single Crochet. (If you are making one for a new born baby I'd suggest doing 6 chain stitches instead of 8)


Continue to make single crochets till you get to the end of the row, then make 2 chain stitches and go back into the second last crochet stitch you did.
Continue making single crochets, row after row. And so, once the strip measured about 19” (48 cm), I sewed the short ends together to form a band. Now of course children of a different age have different head sizes, I always use this Size Chart as a guide.

Then start crocheting Single Crochets, but before you do that, make a slip knot and go into the first single crochet from the last row on the band. Crochet 1 chain stitch up. Then you can start having some fun crocheting!
You need to crochet till your hat's length is 20cm, then fasten it of. Now it's time to seam it up. You can make as many rows as you want, the more you make, the longer the beanie!
I also made a little crocheted butterfly to add that cuteness effect!


And you're done! I hope you all enjoyed that tutorial, if you have any questions, comment away!
If you did crochet this beanie, please post a photo of your creation onto my Facebook Page, I'd love to see it! Please Subscribe to my blog, it would really make my day!
Have a great day crocheting!
