I found this free pattern for a basic beanie, which comes in loads of different sizes, and decided to go with that.
I was actually aiming to make the 0-6 months hat, but because I had all the instructions on the screen at once, I ended up making the 6-12 months one instead! I would say whoops, but it was actually a bit short for Ivy once I was finished.
I think that face says it all! I even use the exact same yarn from the pattern, so maybe Ivy just had a really big head, but she's only 4 months old, so I doubt this would fit her when she's a year. Perhaps my tension is off! Or maybe I made some mad combo of different sizes in the confusion, so who knows!
I decided to add another three rows of double crochets (single crochets in the pattern) and then one row of triple crochet to finish it off. And yay it fits a lot better!
And check out that pom pom! Huge and in neon orange! What could be better?
It's good to know the pattern comes in so many different sizes, because I can make her a bigger one if she needs it in the future. It's really easy, so I would give it a bash if you're looking for an easy beanie pattern.
