I’ve been itching to create an easy, quick, and FUN child size beanie. Work one up for chilly football games this fall, as a gift, or just for fun.
Child Size Beanie Crochet Pattern
This new child size beanie pattern uses just ONE skein of bulky weight yarn, about 72 yards. We’ll create the brim, then we will work in a spiral until we reach the crown of the head.
Bulky weight/Size 5 yarn (Yarn Bee Dream Spun in Tuscany pictured)
-approx. 72 yards
Crochet hook in size M/N – 9mm
Pattern written US terms.
Width of brim: approx. 9.5”
After ribbing is completed, work in a spiral instead of joining each round.
This pattern is sized for children/tweens.
Ribbing is Front Post/Back Post HDC, for which a tutorial can be found here.
If you would like to add a pom pom, I have a helpful tutorial! I think I would use a solid, corresponding color using remnant worsted weight yarn were I to add a pom.
Row 1: Fhdc-37 (or Ch-38, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and each to end) Join to top of first st without twisting. (37)
Row 2: Ch-1, * fphdc around next, bphdc around next. * repeat between * * around. Fphdc around last. Join to top of first fphdc with sl st. (37)
Row 3: Ch-1, turn, * bphdc around next, fphdc around next (ribbing should line up) * repeat between * * around. Bphdc around last. Join to top of first bphdc with sl st. (37)
Row 4: Ch-1, turn. Hdc in each st around. DO NOT JOIN. (37)
Rows 5 – 8: hdc around using third loop only. DO NOT JOIN. (37)
Row 9: * hdc2tog in third loop only, hdc in third loop only of next 2 sts * repeat between * * 7 more times (8 times total) hdc2tog in third loops only, hdc in third loop only of next st, hdc2tog in third loops only of last 2 sts. DO NOT JOIN. (27)
Row 10: * hdc in third loop only of next st, hdc2tog in third loops only * repeat between * * 8 more times (9 times total) (18)
Row 11: * hdc2tog in third loops only * repeat around. (9)
Row 12: hdc around in third loop only. (9)
Using your yarn needle, cinch up the remaining sts. Weave in all ends.
Isn’t this child size beanie just the easiest thing ever?! I love it, and I hope your little does, too!
