Double crochet beanie for a toddler
I cant seem to find pattern for a double crochet beanie for a 1 year old if I am using 5mm crochet needle.
Well, just to give you a basic idea, you'd start with a round (ch 4, slip knot through the first ch), then increase it to the size of the head. To do this:
8 dc through the center ring, slip knot through the first ch, then ch 1. (use some sort of marker ring or safety pin to mark the beginning chain).
2 dc in each loop from the previous row, sk through first knot, ch 1.
(1 dc in first loop, 2 dc in the next) repeat back to the beginning, sk, ch 1.
(1 dc in first and second loops, 2 dc in the next,) repeat back to beginning, sk, ch 1.
(1 dc in the first, second, third loops, 2 dc in the next), repeat to beginning, sk, ch 1.
continue this increase until the hat is big enough for the head, then hold that pattern until the beanie is a long as you'd like. you might want to finish it off with a few rows of sc to give it like a tighter brim that'll help keep it in place. i'm no expert, but i like working in rouds - hope this helps! (I also hope this makes sense, as my daughter has me reading Beauty and the Beast to her right now as I'm typing lol)

My grandmother was sitting next to me when i saw this question, so i asked her and she suggested trying a light and a different size needle. Also take regular breaks.
