Falling Spring Crochet Fall Baby Beanie Crochet Pattern Size 0-12 Months

Fall Baby Beanie Crochet Pattern FREE (0-3 / 3-6 / 6-12 months)

The combination of warm autumn colors and cozy, textured front-post stitches featured in this design makes it the perfect crochet fall baby beanie.

From the outside, the design seems smooth and uniform in appearance. But it’s the inside of the hat that makes it so special!

Front-post stitches throughout the pattern form ridges along the inside of the hat. These ridges form small pockets that help trap warmth, keeping tiny noggins warm on those chilly fall days.

Special Notes:
  • Terminology in U.S. terms.
  • Beginning chains do NOT count as a st.
  • Always place the first st of the round in the same st as the beg ch.
  • Beanie is worked in seamed rounds.
  • Knowledge of FPdc sts is helpful.
    Refer to the image included in this section [below] for assistance with FPdc sts.
  • Pattern is written for a two-color beanie (main color + accent color).
    If you prefer a multicolor beanie, I recommend changing to the new color on the last YO of the last st of the round.
  • Since Rounds 1-4 are worked exactly the same for all three sizes, photos are only included in size 0-3 Months.
    If you get stuck on any size, please just let me know. I’m happy to help! 😉
  • The brim is worked the same for all sizes. Once you reach the final round of your beanie of choice, refer to the end of this post to complete the brim.
