Crochet Blocks Toddler Beanie, Free Pattern



The little fellow in the pictures is my younger son Niko, and he is wearing a beanie hat that I made for him. What’s cool about this hat is that it’s entirely recycled!




Over a year ago I bought a skein of Country yarn by Naturally Caron (75% acrylic, 25% merino wool), and I used it to make my son a Bear Beanie shown below. But my son grew out of it, so I unraveled it and made a new hat.




Here in California winters are warm (especially this year), so the open block stitch worked well for this project. If you use a girly color yarn and add a flower (see free flower patterns here), you’ll have a cute beanie hat for a toddler girl.

  6. This is such a cute pattern, I love the one with the ears! Its good to have a pattern for warmer temperatures as well. All my knits are very chunky because we have colder winters here in Toronto. Take care,
