Snowflake Beanie | Free Pattern

Snowflake Beanie | Free Pattern

This pattern was written for the Sunset Crochet Fourth Annual Christmas Charity Challenge and I am so happy to have it back on the blog! Better late than never, right!? I really am fond of this pattern! The snowflake design was a happy accident. I didn’t set out with the intention of it turning out this way. Don’t you love it when that happens?

This pattern is currently only available in Newborn Size, but I’m playing around in my head with all the different ways this stitch would work in different patterns! Until then, here is the Newborn Snowflake Beanie pattern just for you, and any Winter babies you may be hooking for!

  • I would love bigger sizes. I wonder about the snowflake being stitched over top of the beanie? I guess I mean as frontpost stitches?

    • Hi Laura! I really should work up some larger sizes. This could be a really cute pattern for siblings, or even myself!
      I haven’t tried working these as post sts. If you try, be sure to come back and let us know how it worked out!
