About a year ago, I was introduced to the concept of a boobie beanie. A boobie beanie is a hat worn by a breastfeeding baby that looks like a breast complete with a nipple. I immediately fell in love with the idea.
I am now expecting my first child. Because I dabble in crocheting, I decided to attempt to make my own boobie beanie. I spent one December a few years back crocheting hats for each of my cousins, so I felt confident in my ability to come up with a crochet pattern for my own boobie beanie.
I am happy to share my first attempt and my pattern for a boobie beanie with my readers.
Round 1: Chain stitch 3. Connect the last stitch to the first to form a circle. (color 1)
Rounds 2-3: Single crochet 2 stitches in each stitch, doubling the size of each round. Connect at the end of the round. (color 1)
Round 4: Double crochet. Connect at the end of the round. (color 2)
Rounds 5-10: Double crochet 5 stitches. Double crochet 2 stiches in the next stich. Repeat. Connect at the end of the round. (color 2)
Rounds 11-12: Double crochet. Connect at the end of the round. (color 2)
Finishing Touches: Double crochet a mound in the center of color 1. (color 1)
