Free Crochet Hat Pattern – Girl’s Valentine’s Day Hat

I’m in love.  With this new hat, that is.

Girl's Crocheted Valentine's Day Hat

One of the women in my Bible Study is due right around Valentine’s Day.  She’s having a baby girl and was the inspiration for my latest crochet project.   This hat will fit a  newborn/ 3 month old baby girl and is right in time for Valentine’s Day.  Because it’s so tiny, this hat works up quickly, uses relatively little yarn, and is guaranteed to generate lots of “awwws” when worn.

Crochet Heart Pattern

Chain 3, join with sl st to form ring.  (You’ll need to squish all your stitches as you work since you’re working a lot of stitches into the ring)

Round 1: Starting on left “hump” of heart, Ch 2 (counts as first dc). Work 2 tr, dc, 6 sc.  Dc, 2t r, dc, 2 sc into ring. Join with sl st to top of ch-2.

Round 2: ch 2 (counts as first hdc). Work 2 hdc, 4 sc across next stitches.  2 sc in next stitch (forms bottom point of heart).  4 sc, 3 hdc, sc.  Fasten off by working sl st into top center stitch of heart.

Fasten off, leaving a long tail to sew onto hat.  (I found my heart had more shape if I sewed the end straight down, almost pulling the tail down so the “humps” would have more definition.)
