Family Beanie Hats Crochet Pattern
The holidays are always a time when I do a little extra for the ones I love. Because what’s a holiday without your loved ones?
If you’re looking for a way to show you care, the custom beanies make a thoughtful gift for the whole family this season. They’re affordable and unisex so you can make them for everyone!
I made mine in colors that look great on everyone too: cream and navy. I made the adult size in the rich blue with white trim and a white pom pom. Then, to switch things up a little I made the children’s size (which typically fits 2-4yrs) in a cream with navy trim.
This pattern is so cute and I love the idea of a whole family with matching hats. It’s like a crafty version of the Brady Bunch.
If you want to get started on these little presents, you can grab a crochet kit I put together here. Your kit will come with 1 skein of cream yarn and 1 skein of navy and a detailed digital pdf pattern.
And all of the yarn, Cascade 220 Superwash Merino, in this case, comes from Makerdrop.com. It’s this amazing space I created to support and give back to the maker community. Every order is packaged up lovingly by small businesses who love crochet as much as you. It’s an opportunity to make an impact in your community.
The cascade 220 superwash merino is 100% merino wool but it’s so soft. It’s not scratchy like most wool which means it won’t irritate sensitive skin. It’s also machine washable, so it’s easy to care for the whole family.
These hats are perfect for a family gift or nice stocking stuffers. Just pick up your kit, grab your hook and start creating!
