I have the perfect project for your little one! It is fun, easy and quick to make. The best part? Aside from it being so dang cute, it looks like an advanced knitting project...but it's not! If you watch my video tutorial on how to make it, I promise a beginner will be able to knit this beanie. Everyone will be wanting this hat. Trust me. The adult version is one of my most popular beanie video tutorials. The reason why I'm making this child size version is because I had a huge amount of requests to do so. Link to Ravelry:

Scarf Pattern coming next week!
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen me make this beanie on my instastory. The story only lasts for 24 hrs. so I posted the video tutorial on my Facebook Page


Materials Needed:
-Size 5 bulky weight yarn - 59 yds. | I used Bernat Roving in PuttyPatons Roving is 100% wool-same weight yardage. A great alternative if you want something to keep you extra warm!
-Size US 11(8.0mm) 16" circular needles *MY FAVORITE!!!* Worth every penny, and you save $$$ because you can do everything with them! 
-Tapestry Needle
-Pom Pom Maker


BO - Bind Off

CO - Cast On
K1 - Knit 1
K2tog - Knit two together
P1 - Purl 1
Rnd - Round 
Rnds - Rounds
SSK - Slip Slip Knit
Sts. - stitches


4 sts x 9 rows=2” in k1, p1 rib

This Beanie is made in the round starting at the bottom and decreasing at the top. Attach a pom pom to give this beanie more of a statement.

Note: Luckily I have a 7, 5, and 3 year old on hand so I was able to try the beanie on all of them. It fit the 5 and 7 year old the best. If I were to make it for my 3 year old, I would repeat at least 4 rows less than what my patterns says.
