Amie Baby Beanie – My first pattern!

Hello Friends! It’s been awhile. I have been busy with a sick child and being sick myself. Gotta love this time of year! Actually, it is a very beautiful day here today. In fact I’m having a hard time sitting in front of this computer when I really want to be outside! 🙂 Aside from being sick I thought I would try my hand at creating my own pattern for crochet hat. Wow, what a lot of work to go through to get it from my head, created, and then written onto paper in a way that someone else can understand! Like most of my projects I start small first to see how it’s going to go, so my hat pattern is for 0 – 3 month size babies. I’m sure just continuing to increase your stitches will yield bigger sizes… I plan to attempt these later 🙂

So here is my very first own-created crochet pattern. Please let me know if anything doesn’t make sense, or if it would help to post how-to pictures as well. And please do not redistribute this pattern. If you would like to share, please direct others to my page. You are welcome to sell items you make from my pattern, but you must link back to the original blog post. Thank you!

Directions for 0-3 Month Size Hat: (13”w x 5½”t)

Rnd 1: Start with a magic ring, chain 2, DC 12 inside ring, join with sl st into the 1st DC. (12)

Rnd 2: Ch 2, 2 DC in same and in each stitch around, join with sl st into the 1st DC. (24)

Rnd 3: Ch 2, DC in same stitch as chain 2, DC 1, DC 1, 2 Dc in next, *DC in next 3, 2 Dc in next. Repeat from * around, join with sl st into the 1st DC. (30)

Rnd 4: Ch 2, DC in same stitch as chain 2, DC 1, 2 DC in next, *DC in next two, 2 DC in next. Repeat from * around, join with sl st into the 1st DC. (40)

Rnd 5: Ch 2, DC in same stitch as chain 2, DC in each stitch around, join with sl st into the 1st DC. (40)

Rnd 6-7: Ch 1, HDC in the 3rd loop of each stitch around, join with sl st into the 1st HDC. (40)

Rnd 8: Ch 6 (counts as a stitch), TRTR (YO 4x’s) into each stitch around, join with sl st into the top of the ch 6. (40)

Rnd 9: Ch 1, HDC around, join with sl st into the 1st HDC. (40)

Rnd 10-11: Ch 1, HDC in the 3rd loop of each stitch around, join with sl st into the 1st HDC. (40)

Rnd 12: Ch 1, loosely sl st into each stitch around, end with sl st into the ch 1. Fasten off. (40)

Finishing:

Attach your button anywhere along the HDC row of Round 7. Next, in the row of TRTR stitches, find the TRTR stitch that is directly below and one to the left of the button. Twist this stitch one time with your fingers to form a loop. Pull the next TRTR stitch that is to the left through this loop. Continue pulling each TRTR through the previous loop (not twisting them) until the end, which should be directly under your button. Take this last loop and loop it over the button to hold the braid in place. Done! I’d love to see pictures if you make this hat!

 

Thank you for stopping by and spending time with me 🙂

Have a beautiful day!
