Baby Flower Beanie (3 months)


A friend of mine asked me to make one of these for her friends bump so I whipped it up today. I think it turned out pretty cute :)

Since the baby is not born as of yet, I had to guess the size a bit. After getting a bit of help from google, I decided to make it a 14.5" circumference to fit a 16" head. I'm not brilliant at maths so I used google again to find out the diameter of a 14.5" circle. Turns out the diameter is 4.6" so I went with that. For the length I measured the hat as I was making it up against a hat I had for my babies when they were tiny. It ended up being 6" from top to bottom. Hope it fits!

You will need: 3.5mm crochet hook, 4.5mm crochet hook, DK yarn and yarn needle.

Size: This will fit around 3 months, although you can easily make it bigger by adding extra length and extra increase rows after row 6.

Gauge:  At end of round 6, circle should measure 4.6" across the middle.

1: using main colour and 3.5mm hook, make a magic ring, tutorial here, ch1, work sc into ring, ch1 (counts as first dc), work 9dcs in ring, join with sl st to ch1 on top of first sc (10)
2. ch1, turn, sc in first st, ch1 (counts as first dc), dc in same st, work 2dcs in each st around, join with sl st to ch1 on top of first sc (20)

4. ch1, turn, sc in first st, ch1 (counts as first dc), dc in same st, *dc in next 2 sts, 2dcs in next st* repeat around, dc in last 2sts, join with sl st to ch1 on top of first sc (40)
5. ch1, turn, sc in first st, ch1 (counts as first dc), dc in same st, *dc in next 3 sts, 2dcs in next st* repeat around, dc in last 3sts, join with sl st to ch1 on top of first sc (50)
6. ch1, turn, sc in first st, ch1 (counts as first dc), dc in same st, *dc in next 4 sts, 2dcs in next st* repeat around, dc in last 4sts, join with sl st to ch1 on top of first sc (60)
7-14. ch1, turn, sc in first st, ch1 (counts as first dc), dc in each st around, join with sl st to ch1 on top of first sc (60)

Big flower -
1: using contrasting colour and 4.5mm hook, make a magic ring, tutorial here, ch1 and work (sc into the ring, ch3) 6 times, finish with slst in 1st sc.
2: ch1, (sc, hdc, dc, hdc, sc) in each ch3 space around, join with slst in 1st sc. Bind off and weave in ends.

Small flower-
Repeat the big flower but use a 3.5mm hook and main colour yarn instead.

Sew the small flower on top of the big flower then attach to your hat wherever you fancy it.
