Newborn Baby Beanie Hat (Free Crochet Pattern + Video)

This is the written pattern to go with the video tutorial on my YouTube channel for the crochet newborn baby beanie hat. This hat is sized to fit approx age newborn, or up to a 14.5″ head circumference. I hope it is easy to follow. I have tried to write it up as beginner friendly as possible because this is a perfect first project. It works up quickly and only uses a few stitches so it is a good way to get some practice but still have something wearable for your baby at the end. This hat makes a fantastic new baby gift aswell.

Baby Flower Sandals (Crochet Pattern)

I just finished writing up the pattern for these tiny baby flower sandals, available in sizes preemie, newborn and 0-3m. They are so so small. My children are all older now so I always forget how tiny little baby feet are. I love that the flower on the sandals can be changed for whichever design you prefer. I made a daisy pair and a sunflower pair, but there are so many other possibilities. I wanted to make a pair with cherry blossom flowers, but I recently had a massive yarn destash and now I have ran out of pink yarn. I think they would look gorgeous though.

The crochet baby sandals can be made in the double knitting yarn of your choice, I used acrylic yarn because I had plenty on hand but I just received a big order of cotton yarn, in lots of pretty colours, so I am planning on making some in cotton aswell. US terminology is used throughout the pattern, and a basic knowledge of crochet is assumed. It is an easy pattern, suitable for beginners, and instructions are given for some stitches. To make your own baby sandals, you will need a 3mm crochet hook, a 4mm crochet hook, a 5mm crochet hook, 20g beige double knit yarn, 10g white double knit yarn, 10g double knit yarn in your preferred flower colour, a tape measure, a pair of scissors, a yarn needle and two small buttons.

You can find this pattern in my Etsy shop, with my other PDF patterns and things I have crocheted for sale. Feel free to join us in my Facebook group to see more pictures, get feedback and ask any questions you may have.
