Beary-Quick Preemie Beanie

The preemie beanie that can be worked up in less than 10 minutes!


Hobbii Yarns asked me to try out their new Umami yarn, and so of course I had to make some preemie beanies! The acrylic/wool blend is super soft, and being a super bulky yarn it works up sooo fast. The preemie size of this beanie only has 5 rounds with 16 stitches in each round - I'm in love.


This yarn is also OEKO-TEX certified to be free of toxins and chemicals, which is another reason why I'm so excited to mass produce a bunch of these for the NICU babies! You can purchase some of this Umami yarn here:

I used Umami in the colors Curry, Pale Purple, and Dusty Blue. My favorite would have to be the yellow! This design utilizes the Herringbone Half Double Crochet stitch, which adds an extra element of "squish" and warmth to the beanie. As usual, I've designed this in two different sizes - preemie and newborn. If you'd like a larger beanie, simply increase the number of stitches in the first round, and increase in the following row accordingly.


I hope this pattern inspires you to crochet some super quick, super cute bear beanies for a NICU or charity near you! My hope in creating this page is that you all will be inspired and enabled to use your talent of crochet to make a positive difference in the experience of families with babies in the NICU.


Happy crocheting!
