Basic Knit Baby Beanie - Free Knitting Pattern

The Go-To Basic Beanie is one of my all time favorite patterns and works for the entire family. The name is pretty obvious as to why I love it, this pattern is my “Go-To” anytime I want to knit a beanie for literally anyone. Baby? Got it. Toddler? You know it. Adult? Of Course!

Make a matching beanie set for the whole family! I’ve already got a few different sizes cast on my needles. Everyone in our house will definitely have a beanie!


I just had to knit up a quick little beanie for my handsome nephew! He’s becoming quite popular on my blog lately, haha! He is 4 months old wearing the baby size knit beanie. Remember you can always find the free pattern on my blog OR purchase the PDF pattern through my Etsy/Ravelry shop.

I used one of my absolute favorite acrylic yarns for this pattern - Lion Brand Jeans yarn in Faded. I’m not a huge fan of acrylic do to the “squeaky” feeling it can have when knitting sometimes, and I am SO happy to say I have NEVER had this issue with Lion Brand Jeans yarn.

You can find the FREE written pattern which includes 7 total sizes HERE.
