Striped Baby Beanie

I started the Prayer Collection for 2018 and this year it will be… Beanies! There’s a lot of newborns on the way so it just made sense since I didn’t have much time between baby showers to get them ready.

The first one I made was for Karis using We Are Knitter’s The Baby Wool which is 100% baby alpaca in Natural and Camomile. It was made using 5.00mm knitting needles. You can also make hats using double pointed needles or circular needles, but I decided to use what I had at the time to create this piece.

Pattern: Striped Baby Beanie (Newborn, Knitting)

  • Cast on 60 stitches with Color A.
  • Row 1: Knit 2, Purl 2.
  • Row 2: Purl 2, Knit 2.
  • Repeat 1-2 2x totaling 6 rows.
  • Row 7: Use color B to knit entire row.
  • Row 8: Continue B to purl entire row.
  • Row 9: Use color A to knit entire row.
  • Row 10: Continue A to purl entire row.
  • Repeat 7-10 until you the 11th stripe finished is color B or row 22.
  • Row 23: Use color A to knit entire row.
  • Row 24: Continue A to purl entire row.
  • Repeat 23-24 2x totaling 6 rows. (Bind off on the last row.)
  • Leave a long tail to sew through top edges to bunch top of hat.
    • It’s up to you if you want to bunch it right side in or right side out, but I flipped mine inside out to bunch it.
  • Sew in end tails and voila! Finito.

The hat will stretch to fit the baby’s head and it ends up being about 5″ tall.

#WIP – Basket Weave Baby Blanket (Crochet)

I don’t think I’ve ever estimated how many balls I need for a blanket properly… This is 2′ or 24″ wide. But that’s the last of my four balls of grey The Baby Wool (100% baby alpaca). J let me finish my project instead of making me unravel it, so I got to order 3 more in the mail based on WAK’s Skein Converter. In order to make the $60USD for free shipping deal, I added another color skein of baby alpaca and 3 balls of The Pima Cotton. 😍 And now we wait for my happy yarn mail from WAK…

Oh, P.S. I ordered a bunch of skeins from DROP Yarns also via Nordic Mart… SO MUCH YARN. ☺️ So happy. Will post pictures of the haul when it arrives…


If you want to learn this technique,  please check out Bella Coco on YouTube! I added a third row to make it more even to my eyes, but after you learn it, super easy to design how you want it! I used a Clover soft touch crochet hook in 5.00mm or US size H to make this pattern on The Baby Wool from We Are Knitters.

Christmas Sale at We Are Knitters meant a mini yarn haul!

I purchased a gift card for 20% off, then turned around and used it for 10 balls of the meriwool (100% superwash merino wool) and 5 of the baby wool (100% alpaca). Ahh, so soft and beautiful! This is the stuff yarn dreams are made of. Well, mine anyway. I have projects lined up for these babies and will post up my WIP (work in progress) soon…
