Babies, Kids and Teens Single Crochet Beanie

 

single crochet kids beanies

Single crochet is my favorite stitch. It looks very neat and I like how it looks very clean as if it was done on a machine. Making a beanie in different stitches has its own challenges. Single crochet beanies done in the round is a little different than the basic half double crochet. When you increase, it happens so quickly that it begins to ripple. You can’t increase in every row. Also the suggested hook size on the yarn label is too small for single crochet so go up one size or 1 mm. Please notice the increase in every other row in this pattern. This beanie is perfect for a basic beanie or to use as a base for your own creations. It looks well for men or women, girls or boys.  I have listed the patterns for Newborn, Baby, Toddler, Child and Teen.
