V-Stitch Newborn Beanie, Free Crochet Pattern


This newborn beanie measures 13 inches in circumference and 5 inches in height.



I used Snuggly Wuggly yarn by Loops & Threads (my leftover yarn from Lacy Baby Blanket) and US size E/4 (3.50 MM) hook.




This pattern is my original design. It cannot be posted on other sites or distributed in any other form. If you would like to share this pattern, you can post ONE image on your site with the link to my original post. You can use this pattern to make items for personal use or for sale. If you sell finished items from this pattern, you must give design credit to Lacy Crochet blog (lacycrochet.blogspot.com). Please, respect my work. Thank you!


For this pattern, gauge is very important. The first three rounds measure 3.5 inches in diameter.


If your gauge will be slightly bigger, you will get a bigger size beanie (size 0 – 3 months). However, if your gauge is smaller, I’m afraid your beanie will be too small.



Before we get to the pattern, let’s review what a V-st is. It is crocheted in the following manner:



(dc, ch 1, dc) worked all in the same space or stitch.



In this pattern, V-stitches are worked either
  • into V-stitches of the previous round (that is, into ch-1 space between 2 dc) or
  • into space between two V-stitches of the previous round (that is, into space prior to next V-stitch).



Ch 5, join with sl st into ring.



Round 1: Ch 4, *dc in ring, ch 1* 11 times. Join with sl st into 3rd ch of beginning ch-4.



Round 2: Sl st into next ch-1 space, ch 4, dc in same ch-1 space, V-st in each ch-1 space around. Join with sl st into 3rd ch of beginning ch-4.



Round 3:  Sl st into next ch-1 space, ch 4, dc in same ch-1 space, V-st into next space between two V-st of previous round, *V-st into next 2 V-st, V-st into next space between two V-st of previous round* 5 times, V-st into next V-st. Join with sl st into 3rd ch of beginning ch-4.



Round 4: Sl st into next ch-1 space, ch 4, dc in same ch-1 space, V-st into each V-st around. Join with sl st into 3rd ch of beginning ch-4.



Rounds 5 – 11 same as Round 4.



Round 12: Ch 1, *sc in next V-st, sc in next space between two V-st* around. Join with sl st into beginning ch-1.



Fasten off.
