5 Little Monsters: String of Beads Hat in Baby, Toddler, and Child Sizes

String of Beads Hat in Baby, Toddler, and Child Sizes

-This post may contain affiliate links- 

A couple of weeks ago I shared a new crocheted hat pattern, the String of Beads Hat. I only made the pattern in adult size, but since then I decided I should make it in smaller sizes as well. 

I made it in 4 additional sizes, 3-6 month baby, 6-12 month baby, toddler, and child. The child size fits my 7 and 8 year olds really well, for my older kids (preteen and teen ages) I find the adult size fits best with most hats including this one, but it will depend on the size of the child you are making it for. 


How to Crochet the String of Beads Hat in Child Sizes


You will need:


  • 1 skein of worsted weight yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver in Frosty Green, Big Twist in Light Rose, and All Things You Essential Acrylic in Lavender and Clear Blue)
  • I crochet hook
  • yarn needle
  • scissors
  • optional- Faux Fur Pom Pom

Instructions:


Special Stitches:

HDC in 3rd Loop: work the hdc in the loop/bar behind the top of the stitch that you normally work into

Bead Stitch: The bead stitch is basically a puff stitch worked around the post of the dc next to it.
dc in first stitch, yo, insert hook post of dc, pull up a loop, yo, insert hook around post, pull up a loop, yo, insert hook around post, pull up loop, yo, pull through all loops on hook, skip next stitch
