Shell Stitch Beanie Crochet Pattern

January 26, 2018

The Shell Stitch Beanie Crochet Pattern came out so beautiful and with an easy 2 row repeat pattern, it stitches up in no time. My daughter and I dyed our own yarn in the slow cooker (you can see the tutorial HERE) and as soon as I saw the results, I knew I needed a pretty stitch to match this gorgeous yarn!

I made this hat for my 5 year old, but it can easily be adjusted for any size. I’ll tell you how in the written pattern! It’s an easy stitch with a two row repeat. It’s a quick one to get the hand of! You’ll have this pretty beanie finished in no time.

    1. Hi 🙂 You can make the brim 60 or 66 rows – whichever is a good width to fit around the head (the number of rows has to be a multiple of 6) and then follow the pattern and repeat rows 3 & 4 until the beanie is about 8.5 inches tall. Follow the remainder of the pattern. Hope this helps!

  1. And how would one make this for a 6 month old? New grandbaby should be that size by the time it gets cold here. Thank you, I love your creativity!!

    1. Hi! This is a hat made from the bottom up. You can make the ribbed band smaller (the amount of rows must be a multiple of 6) Hope this helps! 🙂
