This ribbed beanie is easy to make and is sure to keep those little ears warm in the cooler months.
I used some leftover Caron Cake I had after making an EVERYKID CROCHET SWEATER for my little guy. Of course, he needed a matching beanie. This beanie uses front post double crochet to create the ribbing.
This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.

Weave the long end in and out of the top loops of the last row, all the way around
Pull the end to cinch up the top. Sew the top closed by sewing back a forth a couple times through the hole at the top.
