My girls can be found jumping, climbing or flying around the property, wrestling a newfoundland villain, or just normal saving the day activities all year long. BUT this time of year their little faces get so red from the chill in the air that we often have to bring our hero games inside. I wanted to create something that would cover their little noses and cheeks, but still be cute and stylish – DUH a Super Beanie! … maybe I could be an evil genius … Last week I shared the Toddler Size, but it is lonesome fighting crime alone , so today I am sharing the Child size for those older siblings.
I was wondering the screens of Pinterest to see if anyone else had made Super Hero Beanie, and I didn’t see many – and zero girlie ones. So with my trusty hook in hand I was off. I did the find the perfect eye hold tutorial from Heart Hook Home, -you can check out her Ninja Turtle Hat here. Her technique keeps the eye holes open and yet, not too floppy. I scaled them down a bit in size, but the idea is SUPER! I love how these hats turned out and they are easy-peasy! My girls were back in the yard in less than an hour in their new super beanies!

Although this EASY – PEASY SUPER BEANIE looks great as is, I believe adding the two pompoms on top makes it just a little girlie. AS a mom of two little girls, I think we need more girlie super heroes out there saving the day. So IF you decide to add this finishing touch I recommend using We R Memory Keepers Pom-Pom Maker. I admit it took me a long time to get on the pom-pom maker bandwagon, but now that I have – there is no way I would go back. I feel like I waste less yarn, and end up with an even and fluffy pom-pom every time. Well, however you make your pompoms, use the darker color yarn to create them and attach them to the top. I tied mine on the second row away from the magi ring. Weave in those loose ends and you are off to save the day!
This beanie was so much fun to make, and it was an easy project made with less than a skein of yarn, in fact I got two hats, one toddler and one child size out of a single skein – including the pom-poms! I hope you feel inspired to play super hero games with your new hats and I cannot wait to see your color combinations.
