I’ve been wanting to make a faux-hawk beanie for Baby Boy since last year.  He would have looked pretty cute as a baby wearing one, BUT I got a little sidetracked with all the other hats I made him.  It’s Fall now and starting to cool off so it’s perfect timing!

He’s not the biggest fan of hats, sadly…  He keeps pulling it off, but I’m hoping when it gets colder he’ll leave it on (yeah right).  But that’s okay, cause I’ve written a few other sizes for you, baby, child and adult (teen’s too).

I used two different yarns for this one, The Jiffy is great and has lots of texture/color variation and I used it for the beanie, the wool-ease in orange was a great contrast to the blue!  I made my mohawk a bit differnt from others I’ve seen, mine is SUPER full, and FLUFFY… I adore it!

Strip
ch 41 (47, 51).
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across, turn—40 (46, 50) sc.
Rows 2 and 3: Ch 1, sc in each sc across, turn.
Fasten off.

Honestly you could easily make this any length, just chain until your happy with the length front to back of the beanie.

Fringe
Cut approximately 600 (690, 750) 6-7 inches long. Holding 5 pieces together, fold the strands in half. Insert crochet hook, from RS to WS to RS again, around a stitch of the center row of Mohawk strip and into the folded strands. Draw the fold back around the stitch to the RS, forming a loop on the RS. Insert ends of strands into the loop and pull to tighten. Repeat this process to attach fringe to all of the sc in each row of Faux-hawk strip. Trim fringe to about 2-2 1/2 inches long.

Once you’ve tied all the fringe on take a long piece of yarn and a needle and sew your faux-hawk strip onto the beanie!!  I sewed down the center first then down each side to get it nice and snug!

    Oh my goodness Ashlee! This is awesome! And it looks so darling on baby boy. I understand the frustration of them not keeping things on, especially something as cute as this hat! :)
    xoxo

    • says

      you are to cute! Thank you so much for the feature! One of these day’s Ill start linking up again! I’m so happy that business is going so well for you! I hope to see you soon!

  2. says

    Seriously. He is A-DOR-ABLE! This is the perfect hat for him, and it turned out so so cute. Also, I think a pink mohawk would be awesome. Just sayin. I think DA has a great idea going with that one. Just make sure you post a photo of her wearing it once it’s done.

  3. says

    Adorable! Every little guy needs one of these. Hope you won’t mind me linking up tomorrow at Tangled Happy. Thanks for sharing this fun Pattern!

  4. sara says

    Do you have any idea what the length of the hats are when you finish with the main color? :) My gauge always seems different than everybody else and I just want to make sure I’ve got ti right. I’m working on the child’s hat.

  5. Charlotte says

    Can this pattern work using double crochet as well? I’m going to try to make it for a toddler if that makes a difference.

    • says

      double crochet is a longer/narrower stitch, so while it tends to crochet faster, it won’t be as dense. also you’ll stop your increases a row or two sooner, and won’t do as many rows! but totally doable! Have fun!

  6. Brandy says

    Hi,
    I was wondering how you like the lion brand jiffy yarn? its kind of like mohair right? I was thinking about making a hat for my newborn daughter in this but wondered if its soft enough and not itchy for newborn everyday wear?

    • says

      I love lion brand yarn, the jiffy worked GREAT for this, cause i wanted something really warm for Baby Boy for the winter, but for a newborn version I’d use one of the soft baby yarns to make a smaller, softer version.

  7. Tamara says

    I love this hat! I have a new grandbaby and have been looking for a pattern for the faux-hawk. I think I might make one for my 17 years old too. Awesom instructions and the pictures helped also!

    • says

      I’m unclear what your asking? There isn’t an HS anywhere in the pattern. There is a WS and a RS? is that what you meant? right side and wrong side.

  8. Nancy Wisseman says

    I love your hat. I make hats for my family and also sometimes to sell. If I credit you for the pattern, may I sell some? I won’t sell if you say don’t. I always ask first.
    Thanks

  9. Kirsten says

    Hello, I am wanting to make one of these for my nephews upcoming birthday! Can you please let me know how many balls of yarn of each color I will need to make a child’s size?

  10. Joy says

    Thank you for the pattern. I have made two of them now for baby gifts. I cut the Mohawk strips at four inches and like using four strands in each hole rather than five. A latch hook makes the Mohawk go much smoother too.

    • says

      very fun! I’m so glad you like them. I seriously still love it, but wish the baby would have worn it he hated it) going to make larger ones for the other kids this next winter

  11. Suzanne says

    Two questions: 1. How many rows for the baby size hat? I think it’s 15, but unsure. Everyone rights patterns different. 2. Can you explain what you mean by putting the crochet hook into the right stitch then Wrong then right? I’m thinking I may have it once I’m doing it, but not sure. Thanks! Oh and do u ever make videos reaching your patterns?

    • says

      just keep doing rows until it’s the fit you want, every baby is such different size that it’s hard to give a straight “this hat is this size” answer. But yes, I stopped at 15 for the baby. And the right/wrong/right? your asking about the fringe? It’s when your looking at the strip, it’s hopefully common sense, if you have trouble while doing it email and I’ll try to help more. and no, I don’t do videos

  12. amber says

    So cute! I think I may make this for my second cousins 1st birthday! Im wondering if maybe you could do a loop stich and cit at the end of the loop for the mohock part?

    • says

      you can, or you can just keep going, or sl st over, it’s totally your choice. Personally I did finish, fashion off and weave in the ends, then attach the ear flaps where I wanted them to be.

    • says

      I’m sorry you feel that way. I’m not a professional pattern writer, which is why I offer my patterns for free. I just create something and write it down the way I make it.

  13. Leslie says

    Thank you so much for the pattern. My baby [ who's 38 now, but will always be my sweet baby girl] saw a picture and said how much she would love to have one like it…and now she can!

  14. Kate says

    LOVE! I can tell you are a great mom, because you have a LOT of patience even in your crafting life. Thanks for the free patterns. I love beards and mustaches, and am going to make that beard/beanie combo for a friend’s baby and also both of my sons. This one is so cute too! I was thinking of our fave football team colors… but I don’t know if I am patient enough to make the fringe. Thanks for all of the great posts and amazing ideas! Love your sense of style across all your ‘outlets’ (from cakes to home to craft).

    • says

      thanks! I do wait to respond to the difficult ones (I only respond once a month to everything) and that helps with patience, there are some comments where I do get frustrated. But I’ve learned not to react. The trim is simple and goes really fast, so just turn on a movie and have fun!

  15. Nicole says

    Im kind of new to crocheting, I am confused on what to do when i get to this section
    Rnd 7 – Ch 2, *hdc in next 5 (5, 11), 2hdc in next* around, join (56, 56, 52)
    Rnd 8 – Ch 2, *hdc in next 6 (13, 52- no double for the baby size), 2hdc in next* around, join (64, 60, 52)
    Rnds 9- 20 (18, 15) – Ch 2, hdc in each st around, join. (64, 60, 52)
    Why are there two numbers next to the 5 in round 7? Its been over a year since I crocheted so I am trying to refresh my memory

    • Naomi says

      The numbers in parentheses after the 5 in round 5 (and in every round after) are for different sizes of hats. The number outside of the parentheses is for an adult sized hat, then the first number in the parentheses is for the child sized hat, and the second number is for the baby sized hat. If you look at the very beginning of the pattern, you see this: Adult (child, baby). That tells you what numbers/directions to follow for the size of hat that you want. Hope that helps!

    • says

      it’s for sizing, at the begining of the pattern it says:
      Adult (child, baby)
      so the first number is the adult, and if you want one of the other sizes follow the directions in the parenthesis

  16. marisa says

    I need help with doing the fringe part of the mohawk. I cut all the yarn to what you had said and didn’t even use half of it. I can’t seem to understand the way they are supposed to be attached.
