Slanted Shell Beanie - Toddler, Child, Adult Sizes - Free Crochet Patterns

Not too long ago I shared my free crochet pattern for the Slanted Shell Baby Beanies (in 3 baby sizes) with you. I am working on a few other items to go along with that, but I got a little side tracked so I thought why not add the larger sizes to the collection for now.

Materials:
     - Less than half a skein each of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in Rosy Cheeks [Pink], Hot Rose [Pink], and Purple
     - I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
     - #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Material Notes:
     With one skein, you will be able to make at least two adult sized hats.

Time Spent:
      I had all sizes done in roughly the same amount of time - an hour to an hour and a quarter.

Measurements:
The Toddler Size has a crown of 5.75" in diameter, a circumference of 18" to fit a head size of 18-20", and is 6.5" in length.

The Child Size has a crown of 6.25" in diameter, a circumference of nearly 19.75" to fit a head size of 20-22", and is 7" in length.

The Teen/Adult Small Size has a crown of 6.75" in diameter, a circumference of nearly 21.25" to fit a head size of 22-23", and is 7.75" in length for cloche-like & 8.5" in length for regular beanie.

*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 I Love This Yarn and an I9/5.5mm Hook = 4" x 4"
     Chain 16, DC in the 4th stitch, and in each stitch across. (14 DC)
     R2 - R8: Chain 2, turn. DC in the 2nd stitch, and each stitch 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.

For Adult Size, there are two different lengths. The cloche-like length is shown with the regular length in parentheses.

My head measures 21.25", and I usually wear a child's size (hehe). With this stitch pattern, I did find the hat to be a little tighter than a regular beanie, but I still felt comfortable in a child's size with adult length. It is best to measure your head before beginning.
