Newborn Twin Chunky Beanies - Valentine's Inspired - Free Crochet Pattern

This adorable Newborn Twin Chunky Beanie Set will be the last part of the Valentine Inspired Photo Prop Set. You can find links to the whole collection at the bottom of this post.

Below you will find a basic beanie pattern, along with a feminine shell edged version.

These are great as photo props, or as baby shower gifts. They are also great for donating to your local hospital, as they are soft and machine washable and dryable.

Materials:
     - Less than 50 yards of Chunky Yarn (5) - I used Deborah Norville's Serenity Chunky Yarn in the Berry Burst colorway
     - For Shell Edged Hat, additional small amount of Chunky Yarn (5) - I used Deborah Norville's Serenity Chunky Yarn in the Pristine colorway
     - L11/8mm Crochet Hook
     - Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends - I like to use a #18

Time Spent:
     Each beanie works up in less than 30 minutes.

Measurements:
     These hats will fit a newborn up to 3 months (with room for a little more) - to fit a head circumference of 16-17", and 5" in length

Gauge:
     7 DCs x 4 Rows = 3" Square

Abbreviations:
     HDC - Half Double Crochet
     SC - Single Crochet

Pattern Notes:
     Hats are worked in a continuous round, without joining unless otherwise stated.

Invisible Join:
Cut your thread, pull the loop out from where your
crochet hook and then thread your yarn end into your yarn needle.
Insert your needle under both loops of the first
stitch that you are joining to.
You will see in this image,
the beginning/first half of a stitch.
Take your needle down through the
center of the previous stitch.
When I take my needle down,
I also like to begin the weaving process.
Tug on your piece to ensure that the
"stitch" that you just created with the
invisible join is even with the rest.

Basic Hat Pattern:

     Chain 3, join to form a ring. Chain 1, work 6 HDC into the ring. (6 HDC)

R2: Work 2 HDC in each HDC around (12 HDC)

R3: Work (2 HDC in the next HDC, and 1 HDC in the following HDC) around (18 HDC)
