Michael Beanie - Free Crochet Pattern






Hello all. Another beanie pattern today. I've been on a bit of a roll with hats recently so I hope you don't get sick of them all. I know a lot of you have been holding out for some newborn sized patterns, so Im going to try, where possible, to do these hats in prem sizes and then in newborn. Some might not work but I'll deff see how I go at getting some more sizes for you. Id like to go back through all the other patterns and do the same thing, time permitting.

This is a multi size pattern.

Making this hat in prem sizes
DK/Light Worsted/8ply yarn in a main and contrasting colour
+ 4mm hook = a hat for 22 weeks gestation (10cm tall x 9.5cm across)
+4.5mm hook = a hat for 24 weeks gestation (10.5cm tall x 10cm across)

2: ch2, 2dc in each stitch around, join.

  1. I would love to make this hat for a 7 year old child. Do you have a formula for increasing the stiches for older kids? Thank you!
