Crochet Hat Beanie for Kids Aqua Blue

cotton yarn made in Canada of US grown cotton
Here we have a very pretty aqua colored crochet hat beanie with golden yellow trim. It's made of cotton, to comfortably fit small children from large infants to those about 2 or 3 years old. It measures approximately 7 inches (18 cm) tall and is 17 inches (43 cm) around.

This crochet hat beanie, or Cool Cotton Cloche 4 Kids as I call it, will make any warm-toned Spring youngster feel fashionably bright and cheery throughout the dreary winter, and keep them warm and comfortable, too.

Each Cool Cotton Cloche is made by me, of cotton yarn. The yarn was manufactured in Canada, of USA grown cotton. I was made here, in the USA. You may find, over time, this hat beanie isn't hugging your child's head as snug as before. Don't panic! It's just that cotton isn't as resilient (it doesn't bounce back as well) as wool or acrylic. But it's much softer, which is why I prefer to work with it despite that small caveat. A quick wash will remind it of the size and shape it should be, though well-loved crochet hat may also require a quick tumble in the dryer.

To care for your crochet hat beanie wash it in the Delicate cycle (cold water is preferred to keep the colors bright, but warm can be used occasionally to clean a heavily soiled cloche). No bleach, but fabric softener is ok. Dry flat. A quick tumble in the dryer is fine if you only dry it until it's still slightly damp. Too much time in the dryer can result in a stiff and scratchy hat! A Delicates bag or pillowcase is recommended as it will keep your crochet hat beanie from getting lost in the wash and aids in keeping it looking like new.
