Double shot of cuteness

Good afternoon my dear crocheters, how have you been these last days? I know I have been gone for a few days, but while I was gone, I was also searching for new ideas to bring to you. Sometimes, the best way to get inspiration is to give it a break, don’t you think? And for today, present you a paired item, me and daddy beanies.

Beanies are a classic accessory, versatile and easy to wear. There is no specific time for them and they bring comfort to the user. These me and daddy beanies are perfect for father’s day, August is always coming and because this is an easy recipe, you can practice until the holiday arrives.

With this recipe, you can adapt these beanies for women if you need. For that, you can add some embroidery, patches and other details using ribbons to make bows or buttons. If they are for girls, you can also use some glittery yarn to highlight you item even more.  


With the recipe we have you can make beanies sizes from newborns to grown ups, so you can present or sell for different kinds of public. Below, a chart showing the sizes:

Just a reminder, if you are producing this piece for newborns and babies, keep in mind that their skin is much more sensitive than ours. Therefore, pay extra attention to the yarn you will be using, prefer the ones that are hypoallergenic, soft and light to make a comfortable beanie for the little ones.
