Begin.
Beginning ch 1 of every rnd is not counted as a st.

Chain 4, sl st to first ch to form a ring.

Row 1 ch 1, work 12 hdc into ring, sl st to join in the 1st hdc (you will do this on every round until a ch 2 begins)

Row 2 ch 1, work 2 hdc into each hdc around to end, sl st to join (24 hdc)

Row 3 ch 1, *work 1 hdc into the next 2 hdc, work 2 hdc into the next hdc* repeat from *to* to end, sl st to join (32 hdc)

Row 6 ch 1, *work 1 hdc into the next 11 hdc, work 2 hdc into the next hdc*
repeat from *to* to end, sl st to join (52 hdc)
Stop increasing 

Row 7 ch 1, work 1 hdc in each hdc to end, sl st to join (52 hdc)

Rows 8 to 19, repeat row 7, or repeat row 7, until hat measure's 6 inches long


Row 20 ch 1, work 1 hdc in the front loop of each hdc around (52 hdc),sl st to join by going around the back of the sc (see image)

Making the ribbed edge:
Row 21 ch 2 (the ch 2 is now a new st),* work 1 fphdc around the post of the next hdc, work 1 bphdc around the post of the next hdc,* repeat from *to* to end of the round,  sl st into top of ch 2 to join

Row 22 , 23 and 24, ch 2, *work 1 fphdc around the post of the next fphdc, work 1 bphdc around the post of the next bphdc,* repeat from *to* to end of round, sl st to join, at the end of row 20, finish off yarn leaving a small tail to weave in 

Hide loose ends, fold up ribbed edge, add pompom if you choose, or my new beary easy bear applique, link here.

Good luck with your baby beanie, I’d love to hear your feed back.
Please do not sell this pattern, please link back to me if you use this pattern, I’d love to see this used for charity, and you can make and sell items from this pattern too.

hi i was just wondering if i measure the persons head around that i am going to be making the beanie for do i make the measurements of the crown of the beanie the same size to make the right size beanie? Any help in sizing would be great.
