Following this video tutorial (in German language) and this detailed size chart (also in German), I crocheted a beanie for my friend’s 18-month old baby girl. The good thing about this tutorial is not only that it is very easy to follow but the pattern itself makes for a light, very flexible beanie.
I used a very soft yarn considering the baby’s delicate skin, and the thread itself is very smooth and not too loose which I find important for crocheting. Since it is a rather simple pattern, I added some variety with a multicolored yarn, but of course you are free to use any color you like to. Here is what I used for making the beanie:
- 2x Schachenmayr Catania Color, 50 gr/125m each, 100% cotton, Color No. 0030
- Crochet needle 3mm
