Norwegian Olympic beanie for kids!

IMG_7872

 

This is probarbly the most popular beanie in Norway at the moment. The shops has been sold out for baby blue yarn and Norwegian flags.

I was asked if I could make a couple of these beanies in kid sizes. So I wanted to share the pattern with you.  I made the sizes 1-2 y, 3-4 y nd 5-7 y.

I used double thread Baby Merino from Drops, ice blue and red. Hook eu 4

The beanie is crocheted in Half double crochet and the last three rows are single crochet.

Abbreviations:

Hdc: Half double crochet

Sc: Single crochet    

In every round, start by chaining 2. In the end of every round , fasten with a slip stitch in top of your 2 chain.

This yarn is super soft and quite stretchy. I love beanies, but they are not always practical. I have kids that loves to jump, run and climb.   If their beanies slide down in front of their eyes.. I should probarly just make Batmanbeanies for them 😀

Hopfuly I written my notes correctly and I hope You let me know if you have any question. 🙂

I wish you all a wonderful evening!

  1. Hei. Jeg er også fra Norge. Følger deg på instagram=)
    Har lyst å lage en lignende OL-lue til en som blir 1år neste sommer. Han er nå ca 4 mnd. Hva er omkretsen på luen som du har laga til 1-2 år?

    Mvh. nypeblomstcrochet

    1. Hei! Nå har jeg ikke omkretsen i hodet. Men om du lager den minste størrelsen og bruker drops garnet, så er det ganske elastisk av seg. Så den størrelsen passer sikkert. Så hyggelig at du følger meg der. Håper du finner litt inspirasjon. Mvh, Marit.
