Our 6 inch crochet headbands are great for making baby beanies and for the bodice of adorable little tutu dress outfits! These headbands, although they are known as a "6inch", actually measure 5 1/2 inches. Sewing the headband together to make a beanie will give you a beanie measuring 5 inches from top to bottom. You loose about 1/2 inch when you sew the headband together. This size hat should fit infants to about 10-12 months depending on the size of the child. For larger crochet hats see our Toddler Waffle Beanies.
