Bearded Beanie Hat Pattern

The original post for this Bearded Beanie Hat is located here.

The birthday party for the sweet little 1 year old was today. He got the hats I made him and it was too cute! However, when we tried to get him to wear the bearded hat, it didn't go so well.

Look how cute!! He just wasn't having it, which is a good thing I made the beard removable. I do hope that the beard is something that he could get used to after a little while though. Maybe when it's a little quieter and less people around? As the mom was putting the hat on though, the beard did look a little big.

Which I found very funny! After I made the original pattern, I thought to myself that the beard was way too small. So I made it a little bit longer. However, now, it looks like it would have been perfect the first time around.

There was an 18-month old at the party as well. Just so I could get an idea... we had him try it on. Again, he didn't like the beard. But he was able to wear it for a quick minute so I could snap a picture and get an idea.

Yup. The beard is too big. I think with just the extra length I added onto the side taken off, it should be fine!

I am going to post the pattern for the beard, even though it may not be 100% perfect. If you have a little one in front of you, you could always do a little trial and error. If you attempt this pattern, please let me know! I'd love to hear how it came out and if you changed anything!!

To make the beard:
To start, chain 31.
Row 1 - sc in second ch from hook and in each st across. {30}
Row 2 - ch 1, turn, sc across. {30}
Row 3 - ch 1, turn, sc2tog, sc to last 2 sts, sc2tog {28}
Row 4 - ch 1, turn, sc in next 7 sts, hdc in next 2 sts, dc in next 10 sts, hdc in next 2 sts, sc in last 7 sts {28}
Row 5 - ch 1, turn, sc2tog, sc in next 9 sts, sc2tog, dc in next 2 sts, sc2tog, sc in next 9 sts. {24}
Row 6 - ch 1, turn, sc2tog, sc in next 9 sts, sc2tog, dc in next 2 sts, sc2tog, sc in next 9 sts. {22}
Row 7 - ch 1, turn, sc in next 5 sts, hdc in next st, ch 10, skip 10 sts, hdc in next st, sc in next 5 sts {22}
Row 8 - ch 1, turn, sc in next 4 sts, 3 dc in next st, dc 10 times in ch sp, 3 dc in next st, sc in next 4 sts.
Row 9 - With wrong side facing you, ch 1, sc 6 times on the edge of the beard.
Row 10 - Repeat row 9.
Row 11 - ch 1, turn, sc in next 2 sts, ch 3, skip 2 sts, sc in remaning sts. {This makes the button loop for the removable part of the beard. If you are sewing your beard into the hat, just repeat row 9.} Fasten off.

On the opposite side of the beard, complete row 9-11. Fasten off.

On my original beard, I repeated Row 9 - 3 times instead of just the once. I think that little tiny added length taken off it'll help a lot!

    1. I used an H. If you attempt the pattern, please let me know how it ends up!

  2. I attempted it. I had some trouble.. Rows 5 and 6 are the same but are supposed to have 2 less stitches? It came out funny after that.. And also I didn't understand rows 9-11, is it just to add length? Or do I go all the way across? Thank you!

    1. Yes, row 6 will have less stitches because you'll sc2tog a couple of times.

      Also, 9-11 were to add the extra length and the button hole. I thought I had taken that length off when I tested the beard. You will still need to add at least one row if you are making the button hole.

    2. I'm not an advanced crocheter - what is sc2tog?

  3. Single crochet two together. YouTube has a video.
