Textured Beanie – Sizes Preemie to 6-12 Months

Textured Beanie - Sizes Preemie to 6-12 Months www.thestitchinmommy.com

I recently had the opportunity to participate in the 2014 NICU Challenge over at Sunset Crochet and I created this adorable Textured Preemie Beanie especially for the challenge! Since then, I’ve decided to add a few sizes since I think it would be a cute hat for any baby. Just a note, I make most of my hats in cotton yarn so the texture shows up a little better than if you were to use acrylic or wool. Happy crocheting!

Notes:

  • This pattern is written in US terms.
  • Sizing will vary depending on how tightly or loosely you crochet. If you would like to keep the sizing the same, please check your gauge before starting this project.
  • This hat is worked in a continuous round. Do not join unless otherwise noted in the pattern. This is where the use of a stitch marker will come in handy. Place the stitch marker on the end of each round to mark your last stitch.
  • For the textured look, work the hat on the wrong side after Round 1. Alternately, you can work the hat on the right side and just turn it over before you start the post stitches.
  • All stitches are worked through both stitches unless otherwise noted.
  • Sizing will differ based on how tightly or loosely you crochet. Please check your gauge before beginning this pattern.

  1. Beautiful hat! Thank you so much for the pattern! I was just wondering what you meant when you said to work the wrong side after round 1? As its worked in rounds how would I do this without joining and chaining up to the second round in order to work from the wrong side. So sorry I’m just a bit confused lol thank you for your time : )

  2. I just discovered your site. I know I will really enjoy it. I am new to crocheting . Taking class on line and look forwarded to learning more stitches . Maby soon I can crochet some of your wonderful patterns. Thank you

  3. This is such a pretty pattern! I wish I’d found it sooner, as my daughter in law and grand baby just visited Tennessee, and I made her just a plain hat with ear flaps. Oh well, she can have another one, can’t she?

  4. This little beanie is my favorite. I love crocheting hats to donate and I appreciate that this comes in even a preemie size. Also, thanks so much for posting it for free.

  5. This pattern is ADORABLE! I’m grateful for the premie size. I like to find patterns like this to donate to “forever babies”. Most tiny patterns are so dull. I can hardly wait to try it.

  6. Love the look of this beanie and planning on making it today! My favorite that i’ve seen of your patterns so far!

  7. I think there’s an error in your 6-12 month pattern. In row 16 it says repeat row 13, but that’s a hdc/sl st row. I think u mean repeat row 14 -Dc Around ?

  8. I love the color and the texture of this hat. Glad there is a preemie size – it gives me a chance to try it out and donate it.

      1. My mistake! It looks so pretty …on the wrong side! I’ll get some cotton yarn. Thanks so much. LOve this hat!

        1. Okay, I bought some cotton yarn and I still only have the “good part” on the inside! Could you perhaps drive to my house and give me a personal lesson?! I live in Michigan. No? Well then talk me thru this, When you get to row seven, will the slant stitch be on top of the slant stitch in row six? Or will it be over the hdc on row six? My wrong side looks so nice. I’m a failure. 🙂

          1. Oh no!! Ok let me try to talk you through it. So you are working in a continuous round right? No joining and chaining. The slip stitch will always be in the top of a hdc and the hdc will always be on top of the sl st. That way, it staggers the stitches and creates the texture. I hope that helps a bit!

  9. Ok this maybe an implied thing but I want to be sure….. should there be a chain one at the beginning of each round? I knda get lost….. Help 😀

    1. Well, poo, that’s what I’m doing. I’m going to conquer this if it kills me. I’ve reworked this hat at least a million times. I’m not a quitter. A bad crocheter, yes, but not a quitter! 😉

  10. Hi Amy!

    If I don’t want to do a yarn row, should I just do another hd (or two rows?
    Thank you so much!!!
    Ericka

    1. Hi Ericka! If you don’t want to add the ribbon section, you can actually do 4 rounds of hdc and finish off with a round of sc.That should give it the proper length 🙂

  11. In the 3-6 month pattern, the directions tell you to repeat rows 5 and 6. 5 is an increase row. Should it be 6 and 7?
    In that case, there is no texture, as you have the hdc and slip stitch above and below each other. I love the pattern, but cannot get it to work.

  12. My step daughter and I have both tried working this pattern today. When you get to where you say alternate row 5 and 6, it does not work out to the correct qty of stitches. 0-3 months says 40 stitches but there are at least 48.
