I plan to create lots more cartoon character beanies! Who’s your favorite ninja turtle?

**UPDATE: Child’s Size!

I recently created a ninja turtle beanie for my nephew who is 5 yrs old.  I used the exact same pattern for this beanie except for I used a Size G/US 6 (4.0 mm) hook.

Video Tutorial for the child’s size pattern can be found below.  This tutorial is much slower and in-depth than my first as well so if you are having trouble check it out!

  1. Hi! Love this pattern and tutorial! Going to make this for my three year old nephew. Quick question though, I found this written pattern by following the link on the child size tutorial, however; the written pattern says it fits standard adult size. Is there a written version of the child size or are they the same? Thanks so much for any help!


    1. Hi! I used the exact same pattern for my child’s size beanie as the adult except for I used a size G/US 6 (4.0mm) hook. I hope this helps & will update my pattern to include the child size info! Thanks & good luck!


      1. Great! Thanks so much! I will send you a picture of my finished product! I’m still a beginner so I’m a little bit slow with my stitching, but I enjoy it so much!
