Children's Patterns

Crochet beards look adorable on children, so why not use one of these free patterns to whip up a beard for the cute small child in your life?

Detachable Beard: This pint-sized detachable beard pattern from Busting Stitches hooks behind the ears, for a look that can be worn with or without a hat. Geared towards small children, this would look cute on little boys or girls.

Gnome Beard: This free pattern from Red Heart includes both the beard and the hat. The beard attaches with buttons, which makes it slightly adjustable. Once on the Red Heart page, click on the red link below the picture to access the printable pattern.

Fear the Beard: Sized toddler to child, this free pattern from Calleigh's Clips & Crochet Creations was made for her child in honor of Thunder Basketball's James Harden.

Adult Beards

Stand alone beard patterns don't need to attach to hats. Instead, wear them alone, or with whatever hat you want, whether it's crocheted or not.

  • Stand Alone Crochet Beard: This free pattern from Mad Mim uses the bobble stitch to create texture. The beard slips over your ears to secure snugly to your face.
  • Crochet Beard: This crochet beard pattern from Chicken Stitches is adjustable, allowing you to make it small enough for a child, or large enough for an adult.
  • Viking Beard: This beard involves creating a base, and then attaching long strands, which you later braid. Pair with a horned hat for the perfect viking look. Available as a free Ravelry download, you must have an account to access the pattern.
  • Hackalicious Beard: This pattern takes full advantage of the loop stitch to create a loopy, roped texture.
  • Beard for Beanie: This link gives you patterns for both the beard, and the beanie. To include the mustache, follow the link to the free Ravelry pattern, which will require a Ravelry account to access.
  • Das Beardhat Revised: This pattern from Craft Disasters and Other Atrocities is attached to the beanie. This is the revised version, which means the sideburns are wider to support the beard better.

      These are great! I've seen pictures of them but always wondered how they are made! Now I just have to find a friend who can crochet well...

      Diana, you're right. These are perfect for the cold. My friend took his up to North Dakota (we live in FL) and kept warm the entire time. Stylish and functional!

      These are perfect for the cold weather patterns sweeping most of the country.

      No problem. These patterns are for crochet, but there might be some knitted beard patterns out there. Or maybe it will serve as inspiration and she'll come up with a knitted beard pattern of her own. Either way, thanks for sharing!

      Just sent this to my daughter who's on a knitting kick. Thanks.

      Thanks for sharing. I made one for a friend who can't grow facial hair, and he recently took it on a trip with him to Wyoming (we live in FL). He said it worked well to keep him warm. So, not only are they cute and funny, but functional too.

      What a fun (and funny!) project. I'm not very good at crochet, but will share the link with a friend who enjoys it.

      Haha I love this idea, who wouldn't want to wear a crochet beard? Great hub!

      Wow I found that this hub was very creative and seemed like it would be a lot of fun. I would definitely wear a crotchet beard if I had to. Voted up.

      Oh, thanks for the clarification. That's a good hub idea too. :)

      Yes, a moustache, we call a "Mo". And so men grow a mo in "Movember" for charity projects.

      Claudia, is a Mo a mustache?

    • claudiafox profile image

      claudiafox 4 years ago from Sydney, Australia

      Ha ha. Love these ideas. In Australia we call November Movember and those who can, grow a Mo. Please advise on Mo patterns.

      Glad I could help. I was researching these to make for a friend -- he requested one as a birthday present -- and thought others might find these patterns useful as well. Glad I could help. :)
