Baby beards are hilarious. Chase sent me this picture last week–it made my day.
I found a pattern for a crochet baby beard beanie earlier this year, and I finally put it together two weeks ago. This project is super easy–you simply make a beanie using any pattern (I used the pattern she offered) and then add the bobble beard.
The beanie is made with I Love This Yarn in a blue/green striped pattern with navy trim, and the beard is I Love This Yarn in toasted almond. I made the beanie in the infant size and the beard in the extra small size.
Manchester was not a fan. The beard fit him like a muzzle, so naturally he flipped out and wriggled away. No picture 😦
I am thinking about a red hat with a white beard for Christmas. Nothing says adorable like Baby Santa, right?
