Crochet your own stunning lucky stars beanie with our easy-to-follow pattern

crochet Beanie for infants

The star stitch is one of my absolute favorite stitches in crochet and I’ve been loving incorporating it into different designs over the past year; from headbands to beanies, and each one taught me something new about joining and turning to create unique looks.

I’m really excited to finally share this pattern with all of you! It took a lot of hard work and dedication from over 50 amazing testers in our crochet community on Instagram and Ravelry to make this happen; I’m incredibly grateful for their support.

Once you get to the bottom of this page, you can view the video tutorial to assist you in constructing the beanie. Furthermore, the messy bun and fitted beanies in all sizes can be purchased through Ravelry and Etsy (the links can be found when you click on each store).

Instructions

This pattern is for Infant Size (15” x 5.5-6”).

1. In the beginning, use a 4mm hook and fhdc 71. Join with a sl st into the first fhdc to form a loop. (71 st).

Alternatively, if you find the fhdc challenging, chain 71, sl st in the first ch to join in the round (ensuring your ch isn’t twisted). Make a ch 2 and work hdc in each of the next 70 st. Sl st into the top of the ch 2 to join. (71 st).

Note: This should make a strip of approximately 14″ (unstretched). To get the right length, adjust the stitch count in groups of two, making sure the number of stitches is always odd.

2. Work bphdc around the next stitch, then fphdc around the next stitch, repeating until the end of the round. Slip stitch into the top of the chain 2 to join. There should be a total of 36 bphdc and 35 fphdc plus the chain 2, but the chain 2 does not count as a stitch, so the total number of stitches is 71.

3. Repeat Round 2, working a bphdc into the bphdc from the previous row and a fphdc into the fphdc to form the ribbing.

4. Make a slip stitch in the first stitch of the round, which should be marked. Work a half double crochet in each stitch around. Work a half double crochet two together using the last stitch of the round and the slip stitch from the previous round. Join the round with a slip stitch into the marked stitch from the beginning of the round. For a neater finish, use the backwards join method. If desired, switch to a 4.5mm hook and a contrasting colour. This round should have 71 stitches.

5. Chain 1, single crochet in the third loop, also known as a camel stitch. Mark this first stitch. Single crochet in the third loop, or camel stitch, all the way around. Slip stitch to join into the marked stitch. You should have a total of 71 stitches.

6. Ch 3 to begin your star stitch row. Make a star stitch, then make 34 more stars around. To finish the row, hdc2tog using the eye of the last star, the base of the last star, and the sl st from the previous row. Sl st into the top of the first star (the top of the ch 3 used to begin the row). You should have 35 stars plus 1 hdc. Ch 1 and turn.

7. Make 2 hdc into the eye of the next star, skipping the stitch between the stars, all around. Slip stitch into the marked stitch for a total of 71 stitches. Chain 3 and turn.

8. Create your first star stitch row by making a star using the ch 3 from the previous row. Make 34 more stars around the first one.

Connect the last star to the base of the first star with a hdc2tog using the eye of the last star and the sl st from the previous row. Join the top of the first star (the top of the ch 3 used to make it) with a sl st. This will give you a total of 35 stars plus 1 hdc. Ch 1 and turn.

9. Repeat row 7. Change colour before the chain 3, if desired.

10. Repeat row 8.

Note: The beanie should measure approximately 3 inches in height and 7.5 inches in width. If needed, add another row of stars (rows 7 and 8) to increase the size by 0.5 inches per row.
