Childs Square Crochet Beanie – Free Crochet Pattern


This Childs Square Crochet Beanie is easy to make. The size can be adjusted to fit any size you need! I love the square beanies because I love the two pompom look. Don’t you?


Oh and the stitch I used for this beanie is of my own design. It can be tricky at first to find the stitches, but this video tutorial will take you through it step by step.


You won’t regret learning this stitch. If you don’t believe me, go check out the Thick Mesh Beanie that I also made using this stitch.

For this project you will need:

HOOK: 5 mm hook or size H hook for the US

YARN: I used one skein of yellow and a bit of some scrap yarn in white and light yellow

It was all worsted weight yarn, 4 ply US, 10 ply AU





ch = Chain

SC = Single Crochet

DC = Double Crochet

sl st = Slip Stitch

st = Stitch

To start:
For sizes 2 to 4 years old use 8 ply (3 ply) yarn or use 27 chains
For sizes 5 to 8 years old use 10 ply (4ply) yarn and 31 chains

Multiples of stitch are 2 + 1




Round 1

SC In 2nd chain from hook and in all 30 stitches, put another sc into the last stitch and pivot your work and work a sc into the rest of the 29 sts on this side giving you a total of 60 sts.





Round 2
sl st and ch 1 into beginning st, DC into this beginning stitch as well. *Ch 1 and sk a st, dc into next stitch* sl stitch into beginning stitch and ch 1 (30 dc’s total)

Round 3
You will be working in the stitches that you skipped from last round.

The beginning stitch you work one row down below, to the right, put a DC here. See picture below

Ch 1 and DC into next skipped stitch to the left. * repeat sl st into beginning stitch. (30 dc’s total)





Round 4
For beginning stitch ch 1 and working two rows down just to the right of the beginning stitch, put a DC, * ch 1 and DC into next stitch two rows down beside the dc from two rows down * so for this row it will be the dc’s from round 2. The picture below where the tip of my finger is.  Always to the left of the smaller stitch two rows down.

Round 5 – 28
Continue to repeat round 4. Remember to chain in between the dc’s . When counting the rows from here on out, count from your first set of dc’s, don’t count the sc rows. So starting from your first dc row, keep working until you have 28 rows of dc’s done.




Round 29
sc and ch 1 in the same spaces you were using before. sc in all sts around. (If your making this hat for a smaller child, you may wish to do a few decreases here.)




Round 30 & 31
Start your Front post Single crochets (FPSC) in all spaces around.




Rounds 32 & 33
Sc in all sts around.



Now add pompoms, tassels or flowers to the two top corners to add style!
