Pattern Description:

The Simplicity Beanie is going to be your favorite go-to hat pattern for any occasion! Not only is it VERY quick and easy to make, but it is one of the cutest little hats around! This is a GREAT first pattern for beginners! The design is very stretchy and fits a variety of head shapes and sizes. These are popular as charity hats as they work up in just minutes (20-30 mins for an average crocheter) and can be made with any worsted weight yarn - as inexpensive or extravagant as you like! The perfect first hat for brand new babies! Also great as a shower gift - make several in contrasting colors. And this hat is always a favorite as a photo prop.

Pattern includes a BONUS flower pattern you may use to accessorise your hats!!

Hats may be left plain and simple, drawing attention to the sweet baby wearing them, or you can dress it up in so many ways! Stitch a big chunky button to your hats, add a ribbon and bow, or a butterfly clip or other appliqu. Use a contrasting color on the trim. Get creative! This hat can have so many looks!

Skill level: Beginner

Pattern includes instructions for preemies and babies up to 3 months in age.
