This knitted beard is a dress-up box essential for any baby or toddler. With just one beard, they can dress-up like Dad or celebrate any number of holidays: Presidents’ Day, St. Patrick’s Day, 4th of July (Uncle Sam in the house!), and Christmas. Heck, you might even be able to use it on Halloween! Kids love it and adults think it’s pretty darn cute.

Sized for both babies and toddlers, this pattern is a quick, forgiving knit that uses size 6 needles and less than one skein of Ewe Ewe’s Wooly Worsted. In fact, you can knit both a toddler and baby size beard with just one skein. Wooly Worsted is a superwash merino, so it offers strength and washability - two characteristics perfect for a kid knit!
