Button-Flower Beanie

So last week I was feeling lethargic and robotic and much like a machine. As I'm sure most mother's do sometimes. When the girls were finally in bed I was happy to go through my stash of yarn and start creating. I realized that I hadn't made my youngest daughter a hat, and so I began. I really am so pleased with how this turned out. It's my first original hat pattern. It's a very simple pattern, and can be easily customized for larger or smaller sizes.

*** If you want a larger hat, continue increasing after R5 by hdc in next 4 st, 2 hdc in next st, and so on until desired size. If you want a smaller hat, stop increasing after you have reached the desired size in R3-5.***

Join rounds with sl st
Using desired center colour,
R1) Ch 4, join to form ring, (sc, ch 3, sc) 5 times.
R2) (Sc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, sc) in each loop.
R3) Switching colours and working behind first row of petals, (sc around the 'spoke' or base of petal, ch 4) rep around.
R4) (Sc, ch 1, 5 dc, ch 1, sc) around. Fasten off after joining to first st.
Sew button to center of flower using coordinating colour, then sew flower to hat. I attached my flower to the beginning of rows 12 and 13, this hides your seam nicely!


  1. Congratulations on your first original hat pattern. This hat is just lovely, Connie. The color combination is wonderful and you did a terrific job with the stitching. And the button is the perfect touch. Very nice!

  2. I have been looking for a hat I can make with a button on it! I don't know what my fascination is with buttons, but this is the first one I found that I liked. I will probably do different colors, but I am definitely going to try it out. :) Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hey! Just wanted to thank you for such a fabulous pattern. I've just completed it and it's absolutely gorgeous!

  4. WOW great pattern I enjoyed doing this. I am just starting to teach myself to crochet and this was a great pattern to start with. All i need to do is work out how I can make it 1 size smaller and 1 size bigger so it fits all of my grand daughters.

  5. I just made the flower to go on a 'bucket' (as my daughter says) and I love it! Thank you!


  6. This is such a cute beanie!!!! My girls looked so cute in it!! But I found it to fite more as a 3-6 months.

  7. I keep getting a pancake, I am using the right size needle. I am trying to make it a bigger size, but cannot figure out why it is not working...

  8. Hi Jancie, sorry to hear that you're having some difficulty with the pattern. What size are you trying to make, I would be happy to work with you to figure this out!
