18-24 Month Basic Baby Beanie, a Free Crochet Pattern

crochet basic baby beanie pattern 18-24 months

I made this manly little beanie for my son to go in his stocking. It's made with leftover yarn from an identical one I made for my husband. They're going to match! I love it when they match, it always makes me swoon.

Even though my version is very boy-tastic, this is a great basic beanie pattern you could easily use in any color or combination of colors. If you're making this hat for a girl, you could use our Loopy Flower or a crocheted bow for embellishment and make it extra adorable! In addition, this is a very stretchy hat, so if you're making this pattern for a slightly older infant/toddler you could easily just add a few more rows between rows 6-12 and it would still fit well. And, it only took about 45 minutes to make!

Ch: Chain
St: stitch
Sl st: slip stitch
Dc: double crochet
Hdc: half double crochet

Row 1: In magic ring, ch 2 (counts as first dc from here on out)
dc 11, sl st to join

Row 2: ch 2, 2 dc in each st (23 total, 24 counting the initial ch 2) sl st to close

Row 3: ch 2, *1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* repeat all the way around, sl st to join

Row 4: ch 2, *1 dc in next 2 st, 2 dc in third st* repeat all the way around, sl st to join

Row 5: ch 2, 2 dc in next st. *1 dc in next 8 st, then 2dc in next* repeat 5 times, then 1 dc in last st, sl st to join (at this point you should have 54 total st)

Rows 6-12: ch 2, 1 dc in all 54

Row 13-16: (switch colors here if you want a contrasting band) ch 1, then hdc in all 54. (Using a hdc in these last three rows will help make the base of your hat tighter and stay on better, as well as helping it look more "finished")

Weave in ends and you're done!
