Back in October of last year, I published my first version of a Crochet Beanie in All Sizes. I have changed quite a bit from then to now, and so here is an updated version of my Newborn, 3-6 Month and 6-12 Month Sizes. These beanies are great to use as the basis of other hat types. Embellishment how you wish, change the length to make a cloche style or roll up brim or make it in a rainbow of colors. I've included the Star Applique Pattern at the end of the pattern. These are great hats to work up for donation to your local baby hospital :) Remember to use soft acrylic or cotton yarn that machine washes and dries well and weave your ends in really, really well! Materials: - Less than 125 yards of Worsted Weight Yarn (per Hat) - I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Red, White and Royal [Blue] - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook (for Hats) - G6/4.25mm Crochet Hook (for Star) - Tapestry Needle - an 18" or 20" will work well for this! Material Notes: Yarn Alternatives: Red Heart's With Love. Due to allergies, I do not suggest wools for baby - soft acrylics and cotton only. You may opt for a Light Worsted Weight Yarn (#3) if working a star for a newborn size hat as the star applique is a little large. Time Spent: I worked up the newborn size in just under 30 minutes, the 3-6 month size in just about 30 minutes and the 6-12 month size in just over 30 minutes. Star can be ready to go in about 10 minutes. PDF Includes 5 pages, 1 photo and full written instructions for the three baby sizes and star applique.

I began with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thank you Aunt Arlys!) about six years ago, making anything I could get my hands on or brain to think up, from masks for school plays to picture frames and small trinkets but recently (less than a year ago), I’ve gotten into jewelry making and working on my crocheting/sewing/etc. I currently craft full time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback! I chose the name Eye Love Knots in honor of the Burckhalter/Lindhorn family (my very close cousins). Our family has been affected by Retinoblastoma, a cancer of one or both eyes which occurs in young children. There are approximately 350 new diagnosed cases per year in the US and affect about one in every 15,000 births. Although children may be born with retinoblastoma, it is rarely diagnosed at birth. As a rapidly growing cancer, studies of the bones, bone marrow and spinal fluid are also performed upon discovery. If the tumor is contained within the eye, more than 95% of patients can be cured. For those children with tumors in both eyes, close to 70-80% of the eyes can be saved, although many of them need radiation therapy, or possibly even chemotherapy. Fifteen percent of every purchase made from me will be donated to aid in the medical advances and new discoveries on the fight against Retinoblastoma, blindness and other eye diseases. Donations go to the National Retinoblastoma Research and Support Foundation headed by Dr. Timothy Murray If you aren’t in need of any of my handmade treasures but would like to make a donation today, please email me so I can set this up for you.
