Puff Hearts Beanie Baby & Child

Crochet Puff Hearts Beanie (Baby & Child)

Since I love the puff hearts beanie in adult size, I whipped up puff hearts baby and child versions. These hats are so cute with the scattered puff hearts around it. You will need two colors to make the body of the hat and puff hearts.

The yarns

I choose Ice Yarns Softly Baby for the main color of these hats. Ice Yarns Softly Baby is 50% Acrylic, 50% Polyamide. It is labeled #3 DK Light worsted worsted but I feel the yarn is thick than DK weight and perfectly match for the worsted weight.

  • Beg ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  • This beanie work in bottom up.
  • Can be adjusted to any size. Crochet multiple of 6 rows for the band part to get your desired circumference.
