Crochet Striped Beanie Pattern- multiple sizes

So last year I wrote a pattern for a bearded beanie, and the number one request I get is for a child’s size. But what size, there are SO many sizes for children. And do you know how LONG that pattern would be? to incorporate each and every bearded beanie size options? Insane. So I decided to break it into two posts, a beanie post, and a beard post, today is the Beanie, and tomorrow are the bobble beards, mix and match to get the right fit for you child/teen/baby/adult!

I actually wanted more pictures to share, but didn’t want to wait any longer now that the patterns were done and tested… I’ll be adding more pictures as I take some!

  1. wow, you had put so much time and work into this tutorial. thanks a million! they look very nice!

  2. Can you elaborate on how the “beard” attaches to the beanie? Thanks ever so.

  3. Hey I am currently making the striped beanie in the extra large adult size and I had a question about row 10 Row 10- Ch2, hdc in each st, sl st in top of first hdc. 64 dc (it says first HDC in each st then at the end it says 64 DC ) do we do HDC or DC ? and also on Row 9 the final count was 68 but then in row 10 its says do 64? but it also says do a HDC in each st so wouldn’t that be 68? or are we to decrease? confused please help
    Thanks
    Angie

  4. what is the magic ring?

  5. Great pattern. Though I used an I hook & it’s waaaaaay too big. Making this for my BFF, so I can just size it to myself, but I’m wondering if I should use an H hook instead. I’m using Red Heart Super Saver yarn. That’s all I can get in this small MO town I live in. Whenever I make hats, I always use RHSS & an I hook. Why this hat is so large I have no idea. It’s a very nice pattern! I love the FPDC & BPDC @ the end. Thank you for making it free.

    • what SIZE are you making? And yes, the yarn makes a huge difference in what size that hat ends up as well as how tightly or loosely you crochet. no one pattern is going to end up the same for everyone. try the next size down.

  6. I was giving the large size a go. I’ll try an H hook tomorrow.

  7. Thank you so much for this pattern! I was looking for a long time for one to give as gifts to family. Do you mind if I sell my finished products? I’d be sure and credit the pattern back to this post.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the patterns. Can’t wait to get started. One problem – I don’t know how to do a half double crochet (beginner). Please help.

  9. I just love the baby hat with the beard!!!! It’s the face on the baby that cracked me up. I love all of them but the white one floored me. Thanks for these patterns, I will get good use out of them.

    Judi G

  10. thank you so much for putting all your hard work into these patterns. they are fantastic! i’m working on the baby size hat and noticed that the pattern calls for rows 9-11 to repeat, but then there’s another row 11 where the color changes. do i change colors on row 11? should that really be row 12? really it doesn’t matter to me about the color change, i just want to make sure i have enough rows so the hat ends up the right length.

  11. Monica Price says:

    Hi i was wondering were I can find this beard pattern at? I love the bubbles!

  12. Kristin Schmidt says:

    Thank you so much for these patterns! They are amazing! I am new at this whole crochet thing but was able to figure out your patterns with a little help from youtube. I am now working on more gifts than I can count. I was just curious if you had a way to make the beards detachable? It would be nice to be able to wear them as you want. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. You are one amazingly talented woman! Thank you again!

    • no, I have no interest in a beard by itself, and selfishly I only design and make things I like, sorry. If your face is cold enough to cover your face you certainly want your ears covered too ;) so I didn’t make it that way. I’ve seen a few others do it that way, I believe they create loops with ch’s, attached at the ends of to the top and bottom row.

  13. Michelle Sands says:

    Just wanted to say thank you for this pattern. My friend just had a baby and she wanted me to make this hat with the beard. Her husband has a beard and mustache and she thought it would be adorable to get a pic with the baby wearing this.

  14. Michelle Sands says:

    When it says hdc in next two am I doing one hdc into the next two or am i doing hdc in each two stitches? Its row 4 on the infant instructions

    • Michelle Sands says:

      I figured it out thank you anyways.

      • I’m glad you figured it out, I’m sorry but I only answer comments once a month, it takes so much time to answer every comment and I just can’t have it taking up time every day.

    • I’m not sure what your asking do you hdc in the next two, or hdc in the next two? yes…

      It’s a pretty standard beanie, after the first row/circle the next row you double ever stitch, then double ever other stitch, then double every 3rd stitch, etc…. so that row is hdc, hdc, 2hdc, hdc, hdc, 2hdc, etc…

      make sense?

  15. Hi,
    You have marvelous designs and well explained! I noticed that you used same size hook to make all the hats. Could I do the same? I have size H and K.

  16. Hello there! I have a question about the pattern and its probably something I should understand but here I am. I am not new to crochet but I have never made a hat before. I found this pattern and I couldnt wait to make it because my 6 yr old son is obsessed with facial hair. Anyhow I tried Googleing first but no luck. In the beginning i make a magic ring, then chain two on the ring? Or off of it? I’m just confused about the chaining part in each row. Somehow when I get all the way around to the beginning it looks weird where the chains are. After 5 rows I ripped it out and thought I better ask. Hopefully you can understand my question. Thanks!

    • the ch comes off the ring, to get to the height of the stitches you’ll be doing in the ring around. every row you have to chain to get to the stitch height, just like rows or rounds. Does that help

  17. Oh my gosh these are so amazing! Thank you so much for all the handwork and time you put into these patterns. I made the orange and brown one for my boyfriend who works outside and he loves it and everyone always smiles when he’s walking around:) I checked back here and saw all the different sizes, you’re awesome!!! I’m so happy I can make one for my nephew, he’s 3! I wanted to ask how you would feel if I made some to sell at a fundraiser we are trying to raise money for a friend who has leukemia. I saw that you would like credit back to the you, site, and free pattern link so I will be sure to do that. Thank you!

    Alissa

    • I’m so glad you like the pattern! I’m totally okay with people selling items made from my pattern. in fact it’s totally legal to make and sell items from any pattern, you just can’t share the pattern, or any of my pictures. I hope your fundraiser goes well!

  18. stephanie says:

    What is the circumference for the teen/adult beanie?

    • honestly I hate answering this question. the reason I don’t put a measurement out there is because it’s so different for everyone. the yarn you use, the brand of hook, how tight/loose you crochet… I don’t want to say – 18 inches and have someone email me getting bad because it didn’t turn out the same for them. So i give general sizes that you can base your work around. go to the last increase row, and that will give you the circumference, if you want it larger add another increase row!!!! Sorry if that didn’t make sense.

  19. stephanie says:

    What size hook for the teen / adult one

  20. I see the pattern for the beanie but not for the beard. Can you e-mail it to me? Thank you so much, it is so cute!!! Thanks for sharing!!!!
    Gloria recently posted..Boy’s Closet makeover

  21. What do I do if:
    1. I don’t want to change colors
    2. I want to add buttons to make it removable

    Thanks a bunch!

    • then don’t change the color ;) just stick with the hdc row your already repeating until it’s the length want (remembering to leave room for the final ribbed rows)

      I always attach it but feel free to add buttons to the inside of the beanie if you want!

  22. what is a magic ring and how do i make it.

  23. Hi there,
    I am absolutely loving this hat/beard combo! My question for you (forgive me, I’m still a bit new at crocheting): when I start the beanie with the magic ring, do I need to start with a row of sc? I’ve never just started off with a HDC before.
    Thanks!

  24. Chazity says:

    I’m imagining that these hats only take one skein of yarn or less? Even the adult sized ones? Your patterns are great! Thank you for being so generous and sharing them with us for free!

    • less, way less. maybe half of one for the adult one, if that! sorry that I don’t pay enough attention to stuff like that! gah! and your welcome.

  25. Hi Ashlee,

    I was wondering do you sell these? If so how much do you charge? Am expecting a boy in Dec. and think this is so cute and would like him to have one :)

  26. kayla Barkley says:

    I’m fairly new to crochet. I’m mostly a knitter. I figured out how to do the magic ring, but I am confused at how to start the hat from there. Would be great if you would email me further instructions. Thank you. I love the bobblebearded hat want to make one for my 6 year old son and 1 year old daughter. :-)

  27. Ok so I got the ring down, I know how to do the stitches, but every time I get to row 5 the hat starts curling and waving and is no longer making a dome shape…what am I doing wrong? I’ve pulled it loose and started over several times now and I just can’t seem to find my error. Is there one or will it all just even out? Please help I really love this pattern.

    • are you using the same yarn weight? if your yarn is thicker it will be really thick and curl. Or you might simply crochet tighter than I do. Try a thinner yarn, or larger hook and see if that helps.

  28. Marcia Roberts says:

    I’ve made the bobble beard and the beanie. Do you just attach the beard to the beanie with yarn and needle?

  29. This picture is too cute. Makes you smile. Your so creative. Im going to make a few for my grandsons for christmas. Thank you for sharing this with us. I love it!!!
    Thanks for all the diffrent sizes of patterns, we really appreciate all your hard work. Again thanks for sharing.

    • you are so welcome!!! I hope you enjoy making them and your grandson’s like them! Did you see the double loop santa hat? I think the beard on that would look great with a simple beanie as well!

  30. I love these and will be making them for my cousins, one of their babies, my brother and his baby for Christmas, but I have a question on yardage. I need to make three adult hats, two large beards (my brother already has an enormous beard of his own) and two x-small beards. I haven’t seen any yardage in your patterns, but it would really help me, as I have to order it and have it sent to France, so I can’t just go run to the store if I need more… Would be great to have just a rough estimate. Thank you!!

    • I’m so sorry, I’m not a professional, just play around and make things for my kids and then share them for others. So I don’t keep track of yardage at all. the vanna glamour I had one skein of each color (purple, gold and brown) and had plenty for all 6 I made, and for the other yarn, I have no clue, totally used scraps I’ll try to be better at keeping track in the future

      • No worries, I understand. I looked up “how to crochet an adult beanie” and even there, it didn’t have any yardage info. So I’ll just get a couple skeins for the beards and a bunch more for the beanies! :)

        • I am SO sorry still, I was living overseas when I first started crocheting so I totally understand how frustrating that is! I hope it all works out for you!

  31. First of all, I want to say this is a great pattern and I’m super excited to try it out. I just have one question: Do you know the approximate ages for the different sizes? I’m doing them for three of my little cousins ages 4, 8, and 10. I’m not sure if I should do toddler or child for the 4-year-old and if I should do child or teen for the other two. Thanks a bunch!

    • that’s why I wrote the sizes I used for each child under their pictures so you could see the sizes on and try to judge. Seriously sizing is the WORST! Every child it SO different it’s so hard to judge. I prefer to work with my model close to try on. And sometimes I mixed sizes sometimes a small beard but medium hat. I’m so sorry I wish it was easier, but if I set a rule people get angry with me when it doesn’t fit! you can see more pictures on the beard pattern

      • Hi Ashlee, thanks a lot for your efforts and great patterns. I’d like to suggest the way to specify the size. As it’s absolutely true that every child is different, the easiest way, I think, is to use the head circumference as a size: for just a beanie it’s enough to know the circumference taken against the forehead, and for a bobble bearded beanie I’d add the circumference from the chin through the vertex (I hope I’ve explained clearly, I’m Russian;))
        Happy crocheting!

  32. HI Ashlee,
    I too have 5 children although they are now 29-39, same 10 year difference! Thanks for the wonderful patterns, I’m going to make one for my youngest grandson (19 mo) to help keep him warm this winter. The patterns are adorable and look easy to do. Thanks again for sharing.
    Marjorie

    • It’s kind of crazy when I think that she’ll be 16 and driving when he’s starting kindergarten… but usually it’s just so much fun! I hope you enjoy the pattern and don’t have trouble making it!

  33. Adorable! A young father-to-be saw this online and asked if I thought I could make one for his son with a beard that would match his own golden-red beard. Your pattern is so brilliantly written and easy to follow. The infant version turned out so well, I think I will make Dad his very own matching hat & beard. Perfect for those first father & son pictures. Thanks for sharing your handiwork!

  34. Thank you so much for the excellent beanie and beard patterns! I bought a pattern from Etsy that was awful and was going to give up the project. Then my sister found your site and patterns and I now have completed pieces. Thank you so much for writing easy to follow patterns and being willing to share them at no cost!
    Cherie

  35. I just love this hat! I am very new to crocheting and teaching myself with YouTube and info websites like this one. I have a question! How do you make a second row of the fphdc bpfdc connect to the first? I was having trouble discerning what post to go around for the second row. Thanks! And thanks for this website! :)

But this is the beanie I found there. Here is the link: http://www.imtopsyturvy.com/crochet-striped-beanie-pattern-multiple-sizes/ [...]
