Elmo Crochet Beanie Pattern (Crochet Along for a Cause)

July 6, 2018

Do you know an Elmo fan? My son loves this Elmo Crochet Beanie Pattern and has already claimed this one as his own. I’ll have to make another one! (This hat comfortably fits my 4 year old) You could easily make this hat into Grover by making is blue and the nose pink, or you could make cookie monster with a blue hat, no nose and silly eyes. So cute!

ELMO BEANIE

This hat is made in the round and are not joined at the end of each round (I like using this method with half double crochet because the join likes to go sideways)

With red make a magic ring (or ch 3 and join to first ch to make a loop)

Round 1: ch 1, hdc 10 into ring (10 hdc)

Remember not to join. Continue the next round working in the first stitch of round 1. You will be working in a spiral. Put your stitch marker in the first hdc of the next round

Round 2: 2 hdc in each stitch around (20 hdc)

Again, do not join. Move your stitch marker to the first hdc of round 3.

Round 3: *hdc in 1, 2 hdc in next* repeat from * to * around (30 hdc)

Round 4: *hdc in 2, 2 hdc in next* repeat from * to * around (40 hdc)

Round 5: *hdc in 3, 2 hdc in next* repeat from * to * around (50 hdc)

Round 6: *hdc in 4, 2 hdc in next* repeat from * to * around, (60 hdc)

Circle should be approx  5.5” in diameter

Round 7 – 19: hdc in each stitch aorund (60 hdc)

Sc in next 2, sl st in 1. Fasten off, weave in the ends.

EYES (make 2 white and 2 black pieces)

With white make a magic ring (or ch 3, sl st to first ch to make a loop)

Round 1: sc 6 into ring, join to first sc with sl st, pull ring closed (6 sc)

Round 2: ch 1, 2 sc in each stitch around, join to first sc with sl st (12 sc)

Round 3: ch 1, *sc in 1, 2 sc in next* repeat from * to * around, join to first sc with sl st (18 sc)

Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing

With black make a magic ring (or ch 3, sl st to first ch to make a loop)

Round 1: sc 6 into ring, join to first sc with sl st, pull ring closed (6 sc)

Fasten off leave a long tail for sewing.

NOSE

With orange make a magic ring (or ch 3, sl st to first ch to make a loop)

Round 1: sc 6 into ring, join to first sc with sl st, pull ring closed (6 sc)

Round 2: ch 1, 2 sc in each stitch around, join to first sc with sl st (12 sc)

Round 3: ch 1, *sc in 1, 2 sc in next* repeat from * to * around, join to first sc with sl st (18 sc)

Fasten off, leave a long tail for sewing

MOUTH

With black ch 8

Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook(3 ch counts as dc) and in each ch across to the last, 2 dc in the last (7 dc)

Row 2: ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, dc in same stitch, dc in each stitch across to the last stitch, 2 dc in last (9 dc)

Row 3: ch 3 (counts as dc), picot, turn, 2 dc in first stitch of the row, hdc in next 2, sc in next 3, hdc in next 2, 3 dc in last, picot (13)

SEWING

Sew the black circles to the center of the white eyes using the long tail and yarn needle. Leave a long white tail for sewing. Weave in other ends.

Lay all your pieces on your hat how you want them. I put the eyes between round 4 and 8 and about 2 stitches apart. Then I placed the nose between them slightly overlapping. Place the mouth centered under the nose

Then I used my stitch markers to pin the eyes in place. I used the long tail and yarn needle to sew them to the hat

Repeat for the nose

Repeat for the mouth. Try to stretch up the picots to get that deep smile shape. Weave in all your ends

And you’re done with the cutest beanie ever!!

  1. Good morning! I think your stitch count for round 1 of the beanie is off. You say to hdc 10, but in () you said 8. I counted 10 in your picture though…

  2. Just letting you know stitch count for row one has a typo. I believe you meant it to say (10) instead of (8). Thanks for the great patterns. I am having fun creating as we go!

  3. I’ve enjoyed making this hat so much! Part nostalgia and part imagining a child’s delight. Thanks for letting me CAL!!

  4. Breann a question: On the Mouth, Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in same stitch, dc in each stitch across to the last stitch, 2 dc in last (9 dc). Should you turn your work after the ch 3?Also on Row 3 after the first ch 3? Thank you. I’m almost done. 🙋🏻❤️
