Striped Baby Elf Beanie Hat Knitting Pattern

Every baby needs a cute beanie that keeps little ears warm on a cold day.
This darling little elf beanie is a quick and easy knit, that you can whip up in an evening.
Sizes from Newborn to 12 months old

Knit a simple plain beanie, or add stripes in ombre colours.  This is a very versatile pattern.
You can keep it as an elf point, or make the point longer, add a plait or tassel, or even a pompom for variation.

Whether you are a beginner knitter or experienced, this can become your go-to pattern.
It is perfect for a newborn photo shoot, or as a quick gift for a new mom, or pop one in a Christmas stocking. (why not knit it in forest green with red and white stripes?)

Knit a plain one, and add a flower for a little girl. The possibilities are endless.....

All you need is some double knit (8ply) yarn, and 5.5mm knitting needles (US 9).
The hat takes about 50g in total, so you can use up scraps to make fun stripes.

Easy enough for a beginner. All you need is to be able to knit plain, purl, and decrease.

Grab those needles and whip up a few now!

Join me on my Facebook group and post a photo of your completed beanie- I would love to see it!
