One of my best friends recently found out that she is having a little boy.  There aren't as many cute hats for boys as there are for girls, but I think this stripey beanie will do him justice.  :)

It should measure about 11" around and about 4.5" from top to bottom.


Supplies:
Two colors of worsted weight cotton yarn (I love this cotton by Hobby Lobby)
Size 5mm (H/8) hook

Abbreviations:
Ch - chain
Dc - double crochet
Sc - single crochet

Instructions:
(ch-3 or ch-1 do not count as dc or sc in stitch count)
Round 1: With color 1, Magic Ring, ch 3.  Inside ring, 8 dc.  Pull ring tight, join to top ch of ch 3.
Round 2: Change to color 2.  Ch 1. 2 sc in each dc around. (16 sc)  Join to ch.
Round 3: Change to color 1.  Ch 3.  *2 dc in next sc, dc in next sc.  Repeat from * around. (24 dc)  Join to top ch of ch 3.
Round 4: Change to color 2.  Ch 1.  Sc around.  (24 sc)  Join to ch.
Round 5: Change to color 1.  Ch 3.  *2 dc in next sc.  Dc in next 2 sc.  Repeat from * around.  (32 dc)  Join to top ch of ch 3.
Round 6:  Change to color 2.  Ch 1.  Sc around.  (32 sc)  Join to ch.
Round 7:  Change to color 1.  Ch 3.  Dc around.  (32 dc)  Join to top ch of ch 3.
Round 8:  Change to color 2.  Ch 1.  Sc around.  (32 sc)  Join to ch.
Round 9:  Change to color 1.  Ch 3.  Dc around.  (32 dc)  Join to top ch of ch 3.
Round 10:  Change to color 2.  Ch 1.  Sc around.  (32 sc)  Join to ch.  Finish off.  Weave in ends.

Note: You can drop color 1 and pick it back up again, but color 2 should be cut and woven in, since it will show under the ch-3 space from the dc row.

  6. Just wanted to let you know that someone is trying to sell this pattern on eBay! It's a bit difficult to track because they're using someone else's images of your pattern (images here: http://mariannaslazydaisydays.blogspot.com/2014/02/premature-baby-beanie-hats-donation.html). But if you'd like to make a claim to eBay, you can find the pattern listing here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/So-Cute-Premature-Baby-Beanie-Hats-Crochet-Pattern-/111648944681?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item19fecbb229

    Oh, and the seller is samarasknittingpatterns. :)
