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.
