Cutie Pie Beanie Crochet Pattern

Everywhere I look these days all I see is bows!... and no, I am not crazy.
For example, in the last 10 minutes I've spotted about 50 different tutorials on Pinterest from how to sew a bow to how to turn your hair into one.
So I thought it was about time I joined into this fun craze and create a cute beanie adorned with an even cuter bow!

~ Bow ~
Now you can just leave the beanie like this, or you can add some extra cuteness by adding an adorable bow! 
If you'd like the pattern for the bow you can find it HERE
You'll want your bow to be the same colour as the stripe you crocheted in your beanie.
Once you've finished crocheting the bow, take your tapestry/wool needle and work the bow over the stripe on the right or left side depending on what you prefer. I sewed my bow on the right side.
When your bow is firmly secure, fasten off and weave in any loose ends.



 And you're done! I hope you all enjoyed that tutorial, if you have any questions, comment away!
If you did crochet this beanie or bow, 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,

    1. Hi Rachel!
      Yep, this hat could definitely be done for a newborn - 3 yr old. I haven't made a pattern for that age group yet, but I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out with a little trial and error by just taking away some rows.

  4. Could the 13+ pattern be used for an 11 year old? If so, what changes do you have to make?

    1. It should be able to fit an 11 year old, but if it's to long, you could just take away round 8. :)
