I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time. I saw a random picture of someones child with this type of crocheted hat on. Since then I was looking for a pattern for a child's hat, and never found one. So.... here comes in my playing around with some yarn and a hook. This is what I got!
I made this for my cousins little boy. His first birthday party is on Saturday. The best part about this bearded beanie hat is that the beard comes off!!
The beard has button holes and I sewed some buttons into the hat itself. I know how little kids sometimes do not like things on their face, this way, if he doesn't like it, he can still wear the hat.
I did make a pattern for this. However, it has not been tested out on the little boy yet. I have no idea if it'll really work or not the way I made it. So I will not be posting the pattern for a few more days. This is just a little spoiler!
ETA: You can now view the pattern for the beard HERE.
