The mommy and me beanies would be a great mother’s day gift for your loved ones.

Using knit and purl stitches to create seed stitch (also known as moss stitch), these knit beanies will also introduce you to decreasing and shaping.

Winter hats are always a good fast project using super bulky yarn, you could even swap out the yarn pom pom for a faux fur pom pom.

How To Knit Seed Stitch

If you have never knit in seed stitch before you can take a look at this seed stitch video tutorial.

By creating alternate stitches of knit and purl, the textured pattern of seed stitch is created. 

The brim of the adult beanie is knit in 2×2 ribbing and the baby beanie has 1×1 ribbing, if you want to see how that is created, please check out this 2×2 ribbing video tutorial.

What Yarn Should I Use To Knit The Hats?

For this seed stitch beanie, I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Grey Marble (grey) and in Fisherman (white).

This is a super bulky yarn (06) and knits up really fast on size 9 (US 13) knitting needles.

Any color combination will look great and there are many colors to choose from in that particular yarn collection.

Please note – you may have to change your needles for the decreases of the hat if working on the circulars becomes too tight.

If you do not have those, you could use a 60cm/24″ cable and use the magic loop technique.

  1. I made the adult hat for my niece and I would love to make the matching hat for her 3 year daughter. How do I adjust the pattern for a toddler hat?
    Thank you so much!! The hat looks great!! I used pink and white yarn as those are their favorite colors!

    1. Hello Shiela, for a 3-year old I would suggest casting on 36 stitches using the same weight yarn and needle size as given in the pattern. I hope that helps and thank you for your feedback 🙂
