Spring children’s knitted hat pattern

children's knitted hat pattern with crochet flower

Knitted beanie for kids

Even when the winter is over, it’s still cold and damp outside. That’s why I would like to share with you this easy children's knit hat pattern. This time I decided to do a mixed pattern using not only needles, but also a hook.

This knit hat is for babies of 1-2 years old, but can also be easily adjusted to more adult kids.

I have spent just one evening to knit the hat and crochet a flower. So get ready and start knitting a hat!

Child's knit hat size: 

Gauge: 19 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette stitch

Knitting materials and knitting tools:

k – knit

p - purl

k2tog – knit two together

dc – double crochet stitch

sc – single crochet stitch

sl st – slip stitch

Knitting materials and knitting tools:

<> 5 Double Pointed Knitting Needles 3.5 mm. You can choose circular needles as well;

<> Yarn - Alpacana Lanoso 35% wool, 40% acrylic, 25% alpaca. White color – for hat. (0.5 skein);

<> Hook – 3 mm;

<> Jeans YarnArt 55% cotton, 45% acrylic. Pink color – for flower.

Ribbing of the knitted hat:

Begin at bottom edge. Cast on 68 stitches for the hat. Any cast on method you know can be used here.

Round 1: Begin with rib 2 by 2 *knit 2, purl 2* keep repeating till the end of round. Repeat Round 1 until piece will be 4-4.5 cm (measuring from the edge).

Knitting the body of the hat:

Continue knitting in stockinette stitch until the piece measure 13-14 cm from the edge. From this point we start decreasing the hat.

If you are using circular needles, divide all your stitches in 4 and place markets. In case you are using double pointed needles as I am, we are going to decrease from the beginning and at the end of each needle.

Round 1: *k2tog, 13k, k2tog, repeat from* to end of round.

Round 2: knit in stockinette stitch.

Round 3: *k2tog, 11k, k2tog, repeat from* to end of round.

Round 4: knit in stockinette stitch.

Round 5: *k2tog, 9k, k2tog, repeat from* to end of round.

Round 6: knit in stockinette stitch.

Round 7: *k2tog, 7k, k2tog, repeat from* to end of round.

Round 8: knit in stockinette stitch.

Round 9: *k2tog, 5k, k2tog, repeat from* to end of round.

Cut yarn leaving 10 cm tail. Use hook or tapestry needle to pull yarn tail through the last remaining stitches. Pull tight to close the hole. Hide the tail inside of the hat and weave it in into the back side of our stitches.

The hat is ready.

Now let’s crochet triple layer petals flower.

My idea was to make a massive flower that’s why I decided to crochet with 2 strands of yarn at the same time. I didn’t have the second ball so I was using technique where you hold yarn that comes from the outside with the yarn that comes from the center.

I am using 3 mm hook.

Round 1: 16 sc into magic ring. Pull tight to get rid of the hole.

Round 2:  ch3 (count as dc), *ch2, skip next 2sc, dc, ch2, repeat from * to end of round, sl st with 3d st of ch3.

Round 3: *sc, 4dc, sc* all in 2 ch space – first petal. Repeat same pattern all way around until you get 7 petals.

    I would like to make this hat for an 8 year old child. Please give me directions and tell me how many stitches to cast on for the Spring Children Knitted Beanie you show.

    Thanks , Nancy

      Hello Nancy,
      Usually, head circumference for 8 year old is around 51-54 cm.
      Using bulky yarn and 3.5 cm needles please cast on 92 stitches.
      Let me know if the head circumference is smaller.
