Leaping Stripes and Blocks Beanies


Tamara Kelly


Recently I had a fan request – design a hat to go with the Leaping Blocks and Stripes Blanket pattern. Well I love to take requests. So here we are – the Leaping Stripes and Blocks Beanies! While I’m sure she was just looking for a baby hat to make a little layette set, one of the fun things about the Leaping Blocks and Stripes Blanket pattern is that it includes instructions for several different sizes. Therefore, I just had to design hat sizes for the whole family! Pair it with the blanket for little ones, with the Mesmerizing Messenger Bag for big ones, or let it stand alone as the great beanie pattern it is!

Materials List

  • US – J, 6.00mm hook
  • 75-150 total yds Worsted/Aran weight yarn (Red Heart Soft shown: White, Tangerine, Guacamole, Turquoise, and Deep Sea)

Finished Size

Baby (14″-16″); Toddler (16″-18″); Child (18″-20″); Teen/Small Adult (20″-22″); Large Adult (22″-24″)



Color changes for the “stripes” of the pattern are up to you – make it your own! The hats pictured all follow different patterns, but always change color after two or four rows of “leaping stripes and blocks.” Or don’t, it’s up to you!
