Basic Striped Beanie – Free Crochet Pattern

A few years ago I wrote the pattern for my Basic Striped Beanie for a NICU Challenge. I never published it to my blog because I had the intention of writing up several sizes and making into a premium pattern. Months went by and the yarn that I originally used to create the hat had been discontinued. I knew I had to update the pattern and find a new yarn to make the hat so that I could finally post it. Months turned into years. I recently accidentally stumbled on the document that contained the original pattern and decided that it was finally time to update it. So here it finally is! Scroll down to check out the FREE crochet pattern for my Basic Striped Beanie available in sizes Preemie to 6-10 Years. I hope you enjoy the pattern! Happy Crocheting!
