Crochet a baby beanie

Baby Beanie with crocheted flowers

I like to make baby booties, bonnets and beanies. They use up small amounts of wool, they’re very charming and do some good as they get donated to hospitals for premature babies (am in a little crochet/knitting group).

I found this lovely pattern by Crochet Fix on Ravelry

The pattern is for adults but if you use a smaller hook with thinner wool you get a perfect baby-size beanie. She also includes some variations on the pattern as well. 🙂

One of the variants of the Vintage Vibes pattern

I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, an extrafine merino wool and cashmere blend, using 3.25mm hooks for both beanies and the flower embellishments

The stitch pattern reminds me of the stitch used in the ‘Call the Midwife blanket’, follow the link to get the pattern.

The flowers are called Coiled Roses by Pink Milk. You can easily adjust the pattern to make the flowers bigger or smaller. They’re perfect for using up little wooly oddments.

The pointy leaves are from Attic24’s Autumn Leaves and Flowers post. They’re perfect to add a bit of colour.
