Ribbed Brim Baby Beanie – Free Crochet Pattern

Ribbed Brim Baby Beanie - Free Crochet Pattern

After several failed attempts at teaching myself to crochet from a book in my teens and early 20’s, it wasn’t until I became pregnant with my daughter the desire to try again emerged. It’s not an uncommon story, to be sure. We want to provide and protect these pure and innocent bundles of love. And that includes keeping them warm!

Baby hats are great as a beginner crochet project because they are obviously on the smaller side and take not a lot of time. If you are a beginner and are afraid of the half double crochet post stitches, don’t do em! Just continue on using regular half double crochet stitches. You won’t have a ribbed hat, but it will still be functional, and a gift of your hands and heart.

If you’re an intermediate to advanced crocheter, you’ll be able to whip one of these beanies up in less than an hour, including weaving in tails. This would be a great go-to pattern for last minute baby shower gifts. With a little extra time you could customize it with a flower or appliqué for a special touch.
