I'm a breastfeeding mom and yesterday I did a special on my Facebook page where if you saw my post on "the leaky b@@b" Facebook page and mentioned it to me in a message I would make you a boobie beanie for just $8. I normally charge $10-$12. These boobie beanies aren't for everyone! But a lot of people love them! They make a great baby shower gift for a future breastfeeding mom. Moms like to put them on their babies in the hospital in case baby is in the nursery the nurses will know that their baby is to be breastfed only .
Other moms are pro-breastfeeding in public and like to put them on their babies while they nurse ( I think its awesome!). They're great for breast cancer awareness or cancer walks if you want a team of boobie heads :-) and they make great gifts for people that just really love boobies! I'm sure most of us can think of a few boobie lovers that we know....Anyway I've decided to post a boobie hat pattern! Please let me know if you find any mistakes in this pattern because I am not exactly a pattern writer. Enjoy!.
Materials Needed: Worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Aran for the body of the hat, Perfect Pink for the nipple and Light Raspberry for the tip of the nipple. Since this is a very Caucasian looking boobie
Size G Crochet Hook or whatever is needed to obtain gauge
Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends
Gauge: 7 dc= approx 2in/5cm 2rows= approx 1.5in/4cm
This hats is sized to fit a 0-6mo baby. Approx 4.5in diameter and 5in height.
|Tip is slightly darker than the rest of the nipple (because that's kind of how nipples look! duh!)|
I used a darker shade of pink for the tip, but that's not necessary!
Rnd1: Ch3, dc into 3rd ch from Hook (see photos bellow) continue with 4 more dc into same ch. sl st into top of ch2 to join (6dc)
Rdn2: (can join new color if desired) Ch3(counts as dc here and throughout) 1dc in next st, 2dc in every st around. sl st into top of ch3 to join (10dc)
Rnd3: Ch3 2dc in each st around. sl st into top of ch3 to join (20dc)
|Nipple is complete|
Rnd4: Join new color (lighter color) Ch3, 2dc in each st around. sl st to top of ch3 to join. (40dc)
Rnd5: Ch3 *2dc in next st, 1dc in next* Repeat from *to* around sl st to top of ch3 to join (60dc)
Rnd6-10: Ch3, 1dc in each st around, sl st to top of ch3 to join.
Rnd11: Ch2, 1sc in each st around, sl st to top of ch2 to join.
