I made this Crochet Captain America Beanie for my 6-year-old son. It’s his all-time favorite super hero and he really wanted a beanie with the Captain America shield on it. I was happy to get to working on it right away! I’m posting the crochet pattern here so that you can make one too!

Captain America Shield
Start with the white yarn to make the Star:
Make a magic ring.
Round 1: 9 hdc into ring, sl st to first hdc. Pull ends tight to close the hole. You now have a perfectly round circle.
Round 2: *Ch 4. Sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next s, hdc in next st. You have formed the first point in the star. Sk 1 space in the original circle and sl st to next st.* Repeat * until you have 5 points in your star. Sl st to beginning and tie off ends.
Now continue on to crochet the shield around the star.
Using navy blue yarn, sl st into the BACK LOOP of the bottom of the first point. Work in back loops only from now on.
Round 1: Start at the bottom of the first star point. Ch 3, dc in next st, hdc in next, sc in next. You have reached the top of the first point. Working your way down the first point, sc, hdc, dc, tr. *Now working UP the next point: Tr, dc, hdc, sc. And work down: sc, hdc, dc, tr* Repeat * until you have worked around all 5 points. Sl st to beginning.
Round 2: Change to red yarn, ch 1. 1 sc in the next 4 sts, 2 sc in next. *1 sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next* Repeat * all around. Sl st to beginning.
Round 3: Change to white yarn, ch 1. 1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next. *1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next* Repeat * all around. Sl st to beginning.
Round 4: Change back to red yarn, ch 1. 1 sc all around and sl st to beginning to finish.
Now, sew the shield onto the beanie! Use a tapestry needle and whip stitch your way all around the edge of the shield. Tie off in the back and weave in ends to hide. You’re done!
Easy, right? Let me know if you have any questions. I am always happy to help a fellow crafter!
Here’s a picture of Logan wearing his Captain America beanie. Miss Kayla is sporting an adorable pumpkin beanie that I made for her. You can see the pumpkin beanie tutorial here if you’re interested in making one too!
