This week has been a bit crazy (and will be followed by a few more crazy weeks, yikes!). I wanted to share this simple vertical stripe baby beanie. I am a huge lover of stripes, and this Vertical Stripe Baby Hat turned out exactly how I wanted it to (that doesn’t happen very often!).
But first, I wanted to share some exciting news.
We bought a house! Our very first house, actually. It is charming, has lots of character, and is quite old, but we are so excited to update it and make it into our perfect house.
That being said, this week will be a bit quiet due to the move. Plus our little baby #2 is coming in a week and a half! We like to let things come down to the wire…
But don’t worry! I have some awesome guest posts lined up, plus some new crochet patterns (including some boots that I am super excited to share with you!), so I promise I am not going anywhere. And I probably won’t be taking a full-on maternity leave from Whistle and Ivy, but we will be having a bit of an adjustment period.
I am still trying to understand how the logistics work with having more than one child, it seems so impossible to me!
This hat is super simple and easily customized. I included the stitch counts for three hat sizes for baby, but you can easily make this hat for an older child as well.
This hat fits in a slouchy style, but you can make it more fitted by making your foundation chain shorter. I wouldn’t go much shorter than three or four stitches, though. Keep in mind, the hat in scrunched tight at the top to close it, so it will need some length to do this. It is not designed to be worn like a fitted beanie.
Be sure to finish with a pom-pom on top, click here for a tutorial.

Do you have any tips on adjusting to two kids? I am a bit terrified.
