I have been searching and searching for crochet pattern for a 12 month old baby. I did found some patterns but some were time consuming and some did not fit the baby I was crocheting for!

I did get help from my fellow hubbers, specially Lee Tea. I had just started working on this beanie when she suggested an easy pattern for me and I am planning to crochet a beanie following her pattern.

I have used 2 strands of yarn, this made the beanie warmer and quicker to crochet and used crochet needle J/10 ( 6mm ).

I am sharing the pattern for a 12 month old baby however the beanie can be easily crochet to other sizes.

Row 1

  1. Chain 4.
  2. Join the chains by making a slip stitch.
  3. Crochet 12 Double crochet in the ring formed.
  4. Join with a slip stitch.

Row 2

  1. Chain 3
  2. Double crochet in the same space.
  3. Do 2 Double crochet in each stitch.
  4. Join with a slip stitch.
  5. Now you have 24 stitches.

Row 3

  1. Chain 3.
  2. * Do 2 Double crochet in the next stitch and 1 Double crochet in the next stitch.
  3. Keep repeating * till you reach the end of the stitch.
