This Basic Striped Beanie Crochet Pattern has endless color possibilities! This child sized beanie is an easy pattern and I have a video tutorial to show how I like to change colors when working in the round.
This hat is the 6th pattern in the Crochet Along for a Cause. We are making 1 hat per week to donate to a cancer center, school, or homeless shelter all summer long. There’s always time to join! You can find all the details and hat patterns HERE.
