This beanie is entirely made using the basketweave stitch. To obtain the basketweave stitch you need to alternate a series of front post double crochets with a series of back post double crochets. The alternating front and back post double crochet stitches create a sort of double-thick, textured layer.

At the same time, the basketweave stitch is also pleasantly squishy and stretchy. I thought these are perfect characteristics for a baby beanie, and I was not disappointed. The Basket Weave beanie is thick and warm, but at the same time elastic and soft.

Finished Sizes: Newborn (0-3 months), 3-6 months


  • The Crochet Basketweave Baby Beanie is a top-down beanie. This means that we will start from the top and the brim will be the last part that we will crochet.
  • After you crochet your first round, you do NOT need to turn your work. Instead, just keep crocheting in consecutive rounds always with the right side facing up.


  • The pattern is written in US crochet terminology.
  • Before starting the project, make a gauge swatch to ensure that your finished beanie will have the right dimensions.
