Tickle Me Pink Preemie Beanie

A pinked-out preemie beanie inspired by the Barbie movie


With all of the hype surrounding the new Barbie movie, I've loved seeing everyone's pink outfits to go see it! Then I thought about how cute it would be for the NICU babies to be decked out in pink as well. And since I had a bunch of leftover pink yarn in my stash, the Tickled Pink Preemie Beanie was born!


This beanie is perfect for beginners as it uses only single and double crochet stitches for the beanie and flower. I used Hobbii Yarn Friends Cotton 8/8, but you could use any other sport or worsted weight cotton yarn soft enough for babies.


Happy crocheting!


TICKLED PINK PREEMIE BEANIE CROCHET PATTERN


Materials:

  • 1 skein Hobbii Yarn Friends Cotton 8/8 in each of the colors Candyfloss (45), Pink (47) and Baby Pink (51)

  • 4.25 mm crochet hook

  • Tapestry needle

  • Sl St = slip stitch

PATTERN

Step 1: Make the Beanie

  • Round 1: With one shade of pink yarn, make a slip knot. Ch 3. In the third Ch from hook, make 10 Dc. Sl St to the top of the first Dc in the round.

  • Round 2: Ch 1, 2 Dc in each St around. At the end of the round, Sl St to the top of the first Dc to join.

  • Round 3: Ch 1. *2 Dc in the first St, 1 Dc in the next St*. Repeat from * to * around. At the end of the round, Sl St to the top of the first Dc to join.

  • Round 4: Ch 1. *2 Dc in the first St, 1 Dc in the next 5 St* Repeat from * to * around. At the end of the round, Sl St to the top of the first Dc to join.

  • Round 5-8: Ch 1, 1 Dc in each St around. At the end of the round, Sl St to the top of the first Dc to join.

  • Round 9: Ch 1, 1 Sc in each St around. At the end of the round, Sl St to the top of the first Sc to join. Tie off and weave in ends.


Step 2: Make the Flower

  • With a different shade of pink yarn than used for the beanie, make a slip knot. Ch 3. The very first chain you made will become the "center of the flower". 2 Dc into the first chain (center). Ch 2, Sl St into the center. This forms the first petal. *Ch 2, 2 Dc into the center, Ch 2, Sl St into the center*. Repeat from * to * 3 times more for a total of 5 petals. Tie off, leaving a 8'' tail for assembly.

Step 3: Assembly

  • With a tapestry needle and the remaining yarn tail on the flower. attach the flower to the beanie with a few secure whip stitches. Tie off and weave in ends.
