Striped Beanie Crochet Pattern
Size Newborn: Head circumference size 13” to 14”
Start with blue yarn for Foundation Ring and Round 1, then alternate colors at the end of every round. Don’t tie off at the end of every round. Just pick up the new color at the beginning of each round. (There’s a photo below that shows how the inside of the beanie looks like, where the yarn picks back up after each round.)

Here’s a photo of what the beanie starts to look like after you’ve worked through Round 4. Keep going and you’ll see the dome shape start to form.
Once you’re done, invert the beanie and tie up all loose ends. In this photo, you can also see how the yarn of different colors carry over from one round to the next!
