DIY Mommy and Me Crochet Pattern Combo

Is it seriously September already?! Oh, my word this year is flying by! Jessica here from The Hook Nook! So excited to share this EASY and super cute pattern combo for you and the littles in your life! With school starting, it’s always fun to still find ways to let your kiddos remember how much you love them while they are away. What better way of showing this than to have matching beanies and handkerchiefs! Seriously, these things are so stinking cute.

I used Big Twist Sincerely to complete this project which was a super fun way to give this easy project some more interest and added cute factors. The speckling of the yarn is SO pretty and is a great imitation to hand-painted options that tend to cost a wee bit more than this affordable acrylic option. Plus, the fact that it’s machine wash- and dry-able is the cherry on the cake. Can’t beat the convenience! Also note, Big Twist is a brand of yarn exclusive to JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores and will be available in your local store!

Let’s get started!

No matter the age of the recipient of the handkerchief (infant to adult), please always be mindful to be safe and keep an eye on children in the event of an accident.

8. To close hat: CH 1, lay flat so your CH you just created is in the center of your work. Insert hook through stitches on both sides of the beanie, to the other side of the hat, Sl St, which will close it in the center. Bring outside “corners” of the hat to the center and Sl St them closed, around your previous Sl St. Repeat this step to the four “corners” you just created, making 8 “corners”. Sl St each corner individually to the center of your hat. Now the top of your hat should be evenly closed and you can now finish off! See photos below for additional help.

Ta da! You did it! Now, if your child is anything like my daughter, she’s already been wearing it in your WIP (work in progress) stages and is now beside herself excited that she FINALLY gets to wear it whenever she wants – even if it’s 85 degrees outside! Children are so funny.

Don’t forget to post photos of your work on social media and use #handmadewithjoann so we can all see what you’ve been up to! Can’t wait to see your color choices!

xo,
