A newborn beanie is the perfect way to learn how to crochet a simple hat. They are quick and easy so you’ll get that almost instant gratification to push you into that next project. You can take the concepts learned here and apply them to beanies of all different sizes. The Newborn Crochet Beanie is the second project for the B.hooked Crochet Beginner Crochet series, a free 20-part tutorial set created to teach you how to crochet.

Gather your supplies…
- 3 contrasting colors, Red Heart Super Saver yarn (approx 50-75 yards total)
- 5.5 mm crochet hook

I have worked two different newborn crochet beanies using different variations of the following colors: Turqua, soft navy and white. For the purpose of the video tutorial and the written pattern, the colors are listed as follows:
Color A: Turqua
Color B: Soft Navy
Color C: White
The newborn beanie is worked from the crown to base using double crochet stitches and a single crochet border in contrasting white. I have added a button to mine, but you can get as creative as you’d like! I have several beginner friendly video tutorials for flowers if you are making a beanie for a little girl.
