Crochet baby bean hats and yarn on bamboo tray | Marching North

During the third trimester of my last pregnancy, I went crazy crocheting all sorts of baby booties and hats, plus a blanket and several pairs of slippers for everyone nearby.  

Nesting, I guess?

We had temporarily moved in with my in-laws while we were waiting for our house to sell out of state.  

Being a hugely pregnant introvert, I spent a lot of time hiding in the basement with my yarn stash!

I came up with this baby bean hat one day when I was crocheting away.  I wanted to make something simple but with a little bit of detail.  

I’m always a fan of a quick win project, and that’s what this crochet pattern is!

Yarn Suggestions

I used worsted weight acrylic yarn for this, specifically Knit Picks Brava which is one of my favorites.  

You could use any worsted weight yarn that’s nice and soft.  

I don’t recommend cotton because it doesn’t have enough stretch.

Rows 8 and 9

I use the long tail left from the magic loop as a stitch marker.

The arrow is pointing at the first single crochet in row 8, and the string hanging out is the stitch marker.

Here I’m doing the last single crochet in row 8, instead of joining to the first crochet just keep crocheting around.

The arrow is pointing at the first single crochet of row 8 which will be the next spot I single crochet in starting row 9.

The arrow on the left is the stitch marker/tail from the magic loop, and the arrow on the right is showing how I flipped the end back over before I started row 9, so it’s a running stitch marker.
