Free Pattern: Show your Stripes Beanie

Hi there!

Over the christmas/winter break a beanie idea sprung into my mind. The result you can find here! The Show your Stripes Beanie!

I have put three versions of the Beanie below: 0-6 months, 6-12 months and toddler size. I tested all the sizes but it really depends on how loose or tight you crochet. 

If you think that something is really off with the sizes, please drop me a note, so that I can see to it and possible fix it! Thank you!

If you scroll down, there is a tiny picture tutorial. I didn't want to put it in-between the patterns as some of you might want to print the pattern.

  1. Oh that Beanie looks so cute! I have to make one for my little niece. She's 7 months old now and lives in the alps so she'll definitely need a warm hat!
    Thanks for sharing the pattern!

  3. I like your original design Anne. I haven't seen another hat like that. Well done. What references did you use to ascertain the size ranges? I had trouble finding consistent sizing details for baby and toddler hats when I was making my toddler hat. It is interesting to see your toddler hat is for 17-18 cm circumference which is the same as mine so I hope that means we are doing something right! Thank you for sharing your pattern. I love the bold colour contrasts. xx
