The "Heyyy Baby Beanie"

That's right. Here it is finally!!!

For this pattern I used a weight 4 yarn and a size 6mm (J) hook.  Changing the hook size greatly affects the overall size of the hat.  Please take note!  I am also a very tight crocheter but made sure to loosen my tension so as to have a consistent outcome with the beanie.  It's a perfect fit so far and I've made 12 plus of these hats now.

Yarn used here is "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby in "Sand Dunes".

This is a top down pattern...I do not have the pattern for a bottom up version. Sorry!

Keep it safe...Keep it clever...Keep the Love, Peace and Light.  Captain and Chell OUT!


  1. Love it.Super easy to follow but I shortened it just a bit

    1. That's fantastic! I was wondering if the length would be an issue.... ????

  2. Easy to follow pattern. love it. Made one for adult and for child. :)

    1. oh! I would love to see the child version! If you are on Facebook, find my fan page at "5 Knots North" and share your pictures to my page! How cool! Thank you!

  3. How would you do this pattern, so it is a Messy Bun hat?

    1. This isn't my pattern. However, if you did the chain 20 like in #2,then pick up with #3 and go from there should do it. Hope it helps.

  4. Love the huge yarn pom on the white one!! How did you make that? I tried and failed, lol.

  5. What size in inches does this hat turn out? Any other yarn suggestions as I am in Canada?

  6. It looks beautiful, I can't wait to try it out! I'm not sure what crochet in the third Loop means though.

    1. Hi, on this blog GB o to posting ffg or Nov 14th, 2019. It's for a host and beanie. It has a YouTube in the post as bout the 3rd loop. ­čą░

  7. Oh I love this pattern. Made my first one today & it came out great. It is long but it just makes a really sweet slouchy hat. It also looks super cute with the rim folded up. Thank you for sharing the pattern....I can’t wait to make more!!!!

  8. Does chain 2 at start of new row count as a stitch or do you do the first stitch in same stitch as chain?

  9. I just completed this hat today and absolutely LOVE It! It fits well on my 21” head and I like the slouch length too❤️ I am starting on another one today as a request from my 16 year old daughter! In dark purple ��

  10. Love it I'm going to have to make this and I'll send you a picture
