I love the Sawyer Beanie! Its simple, quick design makes it the perfect addition to any baby gift!! Add a faux pom for a woodland-chic look or add a handmade pom for a classic look! So many options..
- Worsted Wight Yarn (I used I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby)
- Tapestry/Yarn Needle
- G Hook, 4.25mm (I used Boye)
- Pom Pom maker, faux fur pom, or materials to make a faux fur pom (see Faux Fur Pom Pom Tutorial)
- Chain stitch
- DC (double crochet)
- DC, BLO (double crochet, back loop only)
- DC, FLO (double crochet, front loop only)
- SC (single crochet)
- Slip stitch
- Alternate each row between DC, FLO & DC, BLO to achieve rigged look.
- Chain two to begin each row.
- DC directly into next stitch to begin new row after chaining two.
- Your chain 2 at the beginning of each row counts as a stitch.
- You will make a flat, rectangular piece of fabric and sew the beanie into hat form.
For this tutorial, we will make a newborn Sawyer Beanie. Stitch counts for 0-3 months listed below the newborn tutorial.
- Chain 25
- Row 1: Skip the first chain stitch and DC in each chain until you reach the end for a total of 24 stitches.
- Row 2: Chain 2, DC, FLO in each stitch
- Row 3: Chain 2, DC, BLO in each stitchYou can now see the ridges beginning to form. Do not forget to crochet into the very last stitch so the edges of your work remain even. 🙂
- Row 4: Chain 2, DC, FLO in each stitch
- Rows 5-20: Continue alternating between DC, BLO & DC, FLO until you have a total of 20 rows.
- Each row should have 24 stitches.
- Measurements: approximately 6.5″ x 10.5″
Sewing the beanie:
- Leave the ridged side of the fabric facing up on your workspace.
- Fold your work in half so that ridges are inside of the future beanie.
- Slip stitch up the side of the beanie to close.
- Slip stitch into last stitch and switch from hook to needle. I usually slip the needle into the last slip stitch and make a knot before beginning the next step to ensure the side of the beanie stays secure.
- Weave needle and yarn in and out of top of the beanie, circling all the way around the top. It will resemble a drawstring purse. I stitch in-between the first and second stitch of each row.
- Tie knot.
- Sew in all ends & turn beanie to ridged side.
- As a finishing touch, I crochet one round of SC around the brim of the beanie. Cuff the beanie and crochet from right to left as indicated below. Sew in & trim ends after completing.
That’s it! Time to choose a pom pom!! Either a faux fur or yarn pom will work for this style beanie.
Sew pom pom securely to top of beanie and sew in ends.
0-3 MONTH SAWYER BEANIE:
- Follow the instructions above, but CHAIN 28 and complete 22 rows alternating between DC, FLO & DC BLO.
