Easy Baby Beanie
Yarn used 1/2 ball of Sirdar Snuggly DK in White. Any white DK will work nice though.
The pattern is worked in spirals apart from the treble crochet rows.
Use a stitch marker at the start of rows if this is easier.
*If you don’t know how to make a magic ring there are some good videos on You Tube, but you can also make 2 chain stitches and put the first 6 DC into 2nd stitch from hook.

If this is for a boy you could miss out the frilly edge and replace with a few dc rounds, sometimes ending the last round in back loops only gives a nice finish.
