Reversible Beanie Hat (Crochet Pattern)

Am I the only one who gets absolutely freezing in the slightest bit of cold weather and really needs something to keep me as warm as possible outside? I made this hat to help keep my family toasty and warm this winter, and it is lovely and thick and cosy so it really does keep those little (and big) ears warm. It’s an added bonus that the hat can be made different colours on the inside and the outside, giving two different looks in one hat.

The reversible beanie hat pattern is sized to fit newborn to adult, and is made using double knit yarn. To make this pattern, you will need between 50g and 100g double knit yarn, a tape measure, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle. Each size uses a different crochet hook, varying from 3.5mm to 4.5mm. If you would like to know which crochet hook is required for your particular size, feel free to message me and I will check for you before you buy.

This pattern is written using American terminology, and is suitable for beginners. Basic knowledge of crochet is expected, but photo instructions are provided for some stitches.

This pattern is now available in my Etsy shop, along with my other PDF crochet patterns and a few things I have handmade to sell. I would love for you to join us in my Facebook group to see more pictures, get feedback and ask any questions you may have.

My latest new crochet pattern is this cute Baby Bobble Hoodie. The pattern is currently only available in size newborn but bigger sizes will be added soon and the pattern will be updated. I know that this pattern has been highly anticipated so I wanted to get it out as quickly as possible for you.

The hoodie is made using double knit yarn and 5mm and 6mm crochet hooks. The pattern is easy to follow and is suitable for beginners, although basic knowledge of crochet is needed. I have written the pattern using US terminology and I have included photo tutorials for some of the less common stitches.

Toddler Hoodie (Crochet Pattern)

I released my Baby Bear Hoodie pattern a few months ago, and since then I have been working on a toddler version of that pattern. As I am a perfectionist and currently test all of my patterns myself, this has taken me longer than I would care to admit. I have had quite a few requests for larger sizes and I am delighted to now be able to say that I have finally finished the Toddler Bear Hoodie pattern! This pattern is for sizes 1-2y, 2-3y and 3-4y, or from around 20″-22″ chest. The pattern has been made with around 5″ of ease included, to allow for layering. The hoodie can be made without the bear ears, but I think they add an extra touch of cute.

The hoodie is made using two strands of double knit yarn held together throughout, with 5mm and 6mm crochet hooks. The pattern is easy to follow and is suitable for beginners, although basic knowledge of crochet is needed. I have written the pattern using US terminology.

You can find the toddler hoodie pattern in my Etsy shop, alongside my other PDF patterns and a few things I have crocheted and are ready made for sale. The baby sized version of this pattern is available here, and for a combined pattern to fit from newborn to 4 years, click here.

Headband Earwarmer (Free Crochet Pattern)

This is another one of those patterns that I have made many of over the years. Headband earwarmers work up really quickly and look very cute. I think the thing I love the most is that they can be worn over a ponytail. That is something I have struggled with in the past, keeping the girls ears warm when they want to wear their hair up. They don’t like wearing a hat over their ponytail and to be fair, it does look pretty uncomfortable so I can see why they wouldn’t like it. This was our compromise. They get their ponytails and I get to cover their ears so I know they are warm ❤

To make your own headband earwarmer, you will need a 5mm crochet hook and double knit yarn in the colour of your choice. I let my girls choose their favourite colours, so I know there will be no fighting over wearing them. You will also need a tape measure, a pair of scissors and a yarn needle.

This pattern should fit an age 6-10 years or up to about a 21″ head. The finished earwarmer should measure approximately 17.25″ in unstretched length and 3.25″ width.

1. ch17, hdc in 3rd chain from hook and across (15)

2-41. ch2, working in back loops only, hdc in stitch at base of chain and each stitch across (15)

Learn to Crochet: Single Crochet Stitch (VIDEO)

In my last two Learn to Crochet videos, I taught you which tools you really need to get started in crochet, and how to work a slipknot and chain. In this video, I am going to show you how to work the single crochet stitch. The single crochet stitch is one of the most basic crochet stitches, and one that I use most days, so it is definitely a useful stitch to know.

For this square, I used a 4mm crochet hook and double knit yarn. You can use whichever hook size and yarn you prefer, but please remember that a different sized hook or yarn will give different finished measurements. To start, you will need to make a slipknot and chain 22. To make the single crochet, insert your hook into the second chain from the hook. Catch the yarn and bring it through the chain, which should give you two loops on your hook. Catch the yarn again and bring it through both loops. You have just worked a single crochet.

You can now make a slipknot, chain and work a single crochet. Well done! You’re well on your way to becoming an expert crocheter.
