Free beanie hat knitting pattern

SSCB stocking stitch hat with hearts.

 

Our two Beanie Hats have 2 variations - one has a single heart for love and a roll brim and the other has three hearts, one for the baby, one for the family and one for the Neonatal Unit and a rib band.

The beanie hats are in simple stocking stitch, with the hearts knitted in reverse stocking stitch. Both hats are knitted in double knitting yarn and 4mm needles. 

We are happy to receive these hats in all colours and via our PO Box. 

Requirements

Please use new yarn.

While we appreciate that knitters have different abilities and as these are gifts for babies and families who have gone through so much, we would appreciate a high quality of knitting and sewing up. 

All sewing MUST be fastened securely.
