This is the toddler and child’s size patterns to match my extremely popular Wanderlust Beanie for men.

Difficulty:
Easy

Materials Needed:
Toddler (1-3 years): 3.75 mm (E) hook, or hook needed to obtain gauge
Child (Up to 10 yrs): 4.5mm hook, or hook needed to obtain gauge
120-175 yards of Lion Brand “Jeans” yarn
scissors
yarn needle
Optional: leather or fabric tag of your choosing. All This Wood has some excellent options, and can do custom orders.

Stitches Used:
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
FPdc = front post double crochet
BPdc = back post double crochet

Additional Terms:
Working in the 3rd loop of hdc. Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.

Gauge:
Toddler size: Using 3.75mm hook, hat should measure 4 3/4” across after round 6. 17 dc sts in 4”. Each dc should measure 1/2” tall.
Child: using 4.5mm hook, hat should measure 5 1/2” across after round 6. 17 stitches in 4”. Each dc should measure just under 3/4” tall.

Measurements:
Toddler: 8” wide by 6” tall, unstretched
Child: 9” wide by 7” tall, unstretched

Additional Notes:
-Lion Brand Jeans yarn is classified as a #4 Worsted yarn but is much closer to a #3 Light weight or DK yarn. Trying to crochet this pattern with a typical worsted weight yarn will result in a much larger hat. I strongly recommend you use only the Lion Brand Jeans, or Lion Brand Jeans Colors yarn as that is what this pattern was tested with, ie. If you message me saying you’re frustrated that your hat didn’t turn out the right size, my first question will be “Did you meet gauge?”, followed by “Did you use the recommended yarn?” ;)
