Everyday-style crochet headwear

Save 25% when you purchase a bundle of Bandana Heads' crochet patterns:



An open check crochet stitch is featured in all three Everyday styles: beanie, bandana and headband. The crochet beanie is unisex - guys with buzzed or bald heads will appreciate the softness and comfort of lightweight cotton.

You will need 1 x 50 g skein of 4 ply fingering weight yarn for each project and a 3.00 mm hook. If you have ribbon yarn in your stash you may like to embellish the edge of the beanie for a pretty accent.

My favorite cotton yarn for a summer weight beanie or bandana is a 4 ply cotton from Brazil by Circulo Linhas called Anne. It is very soft and comes in a luscious variety of colors. Other yarn suggestions include: Fingering/4 ply weight yarn such Mandarin Petit by Norwegian Spirit, Sesia Baby by Sesia, Rowan 4 ply cotton, Panda Regal 4 ply and Heirloom 4 ply cotton from Australia.

You can buy the Everyday-style pattern bundle at BandanaHeads on Etsy

Visor beanie pattern for babies - afghan daisy - granny square crochet hat pattern




Our little model, Stella Daisy, is 8 months old and her crochet cap fits her perfectly. Hat elastic can be incorporated in the construction of the cap to provide a custom fit for most babies up to the age of 12 months.

The bill or sun visor protects young eyes from the glare on a sunny day and colorful granny squares are pleasing to babies. You will enjoy crocheting these daisy granny squares that join easily to make a crown and match the hexagon that forms the top of the cap.

Crochet a granny square cap for a special baby shower gift. Handmade gifts are filled with love. You will need sport weight or DK yarn in cotton or cotton blends and a 3.5 mm (size E) hook to crochet this travel cap for babies.

Comprehensive crochet instructions are supported by stitch charts and a table of crochet terms used in the pattern. You can purchase your downloadable PDF pattern at BandanaHeads shop on Etsy.
