Slanted Shell Baby Beanies - 3 Sizes - Free Crochet Pattern

If you are a regular here, you know how much I love the Slanted Shell stitch pattern. How could I resist creating these sweet little Slanted Shell Baby Beanies?

Materials:
     - Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Deborah Norville's Everyday Soft in Baby Pink, Mist (a Light Gray) and Royal Blue
     - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
     - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Material Notes:
     You will want to find a soft, acrylic or cotton yarn for babies.

With one skein, you should be able to make 3-5 hats. They only take a small amount.

Time Spent:
      I had all sizes done in roughly the same amount of time - about 45 minutes.

Measurements:
The Newborn Size has a crown of 4.25" in diameter, a circumference of nearly 13.5" to fit a head size of 13" - 14", and is 5" in length.

The 3-6 Month Size has a crown of 4.75" in diameter, a circumference of nearly 15" to fit a head size of 15" - 16", and is also 5" in length.

The 6-12 Month Size has a crown of 5.25" in diameter, a circumference of nearly 16.5" to fit a head size of 17" - 19", and is 5.5" in length.

*Stretch depends on your yarn brand selected. The Everyday Soft yarn has about an inch to an inch and a half, while a yarn such as Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn has about two inches worth.

Gauge:
With Everyday Soft and an I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook = 4" x 4":
     Chain 19, DC in the 4th chain, and in each stitch across. (16 DC)
     R2 - R8: Chain 2, turn. DC in the 2nd DC and in each DC across.
     Fasten Off.

Abbreviations:
     SC - Single Crochet
     DC - Double Crochet
     RS - Right Side of Piece

Pattern Notes:
     Join to the first stitch, not the beginning chain.

Beginning chain 2 in the crown does not count as a stitch.

Turning is only done through the slanted shell pattern. Watch for directions.
