If you would like to read my thoughts on beanies go to the Giving the Beans to Beanies post.
A basic baby beanie hat that is easy to adapt with colour changes. You can also sew on appliqués to enhance the look of the beanie and to make it stand out from the rest. Made with double crochet to make it a quick project. Make more than one, choose your favourite colour combinations, team colours, or just something funky. Combine with the no-sew baby booties and the baby armour vest in the colours of your choice to make a matching set that will make baby stand out from the crowd.
