Basic Beanie


This a very easy pattern. Good for beginners to practice their crocheting skills. This is really very easy and also so handy. Here I made 3 sizes of beanie. For my husband (adult), my eldest (child- grade school) and my youngest ( toddler-preschooler). It's so easy to adjust the sizes also. I am currently making for my own (for women) so that all four of us has each one. 

Pattern here is made for an adult. There are notes along the way for a toddler and a preschooler to a child.

Materials:
  • Red Heart Soft in 2 Contrasting Colors ( Cream & Royal Blue)
  • I /5.5 mm crochet hook
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors


Size
  • Toddler to Adult Size


Stitches used:
  • sl st - slip stitch
  • dc - double crochet
  • hdc - half double crochet
  • fpdc - front post double crochet
  • bpdc - back post double crochet

Instructions:
R1. Using your lighter color of yarn (cream), make a magic ring  and dc 12 into the ring. Change color, join with a slip stitch into the first dc, chain 2.

R2. Dc 2 in each stitches around. Change color, join with a slip stitch into the first dc, chain 2.
R3.Dc in first stitch, dc 2 in next stitch. Repeat this pattern all the way around. Change color, join with a slip stitch into the first dc, chain 2.

R4. Dc 1 in each 2 stitches, then dc 2 in the next stitch. Repeat this pattern all the way around. Change color, join with a slip stitch into the first dc, chain 2. (

R5. Dc 1 in each 3 stitches, then  dc 2 in the next stitch. Repeat this pattern all the way around. Change color, join with a slip stitch into the first dc, chain 2. If you are making one for a toddler just stop up to this point then continue on R7.) 

R6 for a Preschooler to a child. Dc 1 in each 11 stitches, then dc 2 in the next stitch. Repeat this pattern all the way around. Change color, join with a slip stitch into the first dc, chain 2.

R6.   Dc 1 in each 4 stitches, then  dc 2 in the next stitch. Repeat this pattern all the way around. Change color, join with a slip stitch into the first dc, chain 2.

R7 - R15. Dc in each stitches all the way around. For a toddler up to round 12 only. For a preschooler or a child up to round 13. And for an adult round 15. You must change color in every round. Then proceed all sizes to R16 for the band of the beanie.

 R16. Chain 1, hdc in each stitches all the way around. Now on this round you don't need to change color anymore. We will now be making the band of the beanie in the same color as round 16.

R17. Chain 2, bpdc in the first stitch, fpdc in the next stitch. Repeat this pattern all the way around, then join with a sl st in first stitch of the round. 

R18-R19. Repeat R17.
Here's a good tutorial from Tamara on Mooglyblog.com on how to make post stitches.




R20. Slip stitch each stitch all the way around. Then fasten off and weave all ends.

This hat is for the toddler

For preschooler - Child

That's how easy this beanie is. And it is fast to make also. A good project to practice your skills in crochet
