I’ve been loving wearing my Puff Stitch Slouchy Beanie ever since I made it. A reader of mine asked if I had created a toddler version and this is the pattern for the beanie. Also, I don’t have a toddler in my life, so I have worked out the math using a number of crochet charts.This hat is worked in a spiral, so I use a stitch marker to mark the last stitch of each round. Let me know in the comment’s below or message me on Instagram if you want the pattern in a different size.
