Easy Baby Crochet Hat

Easy Baby Crochet Hat Pattern

This¬†easy baby crochet hat takes 50 yards of yarn and can be worked up in less than 30 minutes. I wanted something quick and easy that I could make while watching Netflix. (We’ve all been there on a Friday night, no?)

Grab the small ball of yarn that’s been in your stash and give it purpose.

This baby hat uses basic stitches and is crocheted in just 9 rows. Yes, seriously – that’s it! Let’s go!

Baby Crochet Hat Pattern

Materials:

  • Size G (4.25mm) crochet hook
  • 50 yards medium weight yarn (I used Vanna’s Choice)

Size:

Hat will fit a newborn-ish baby. Not a fresh-out-of-the-mama baby, but the type of baby you see when you’re finally able to visit your friend and her 1 month old baby. ūüôā

Hat is 5.5 inches wide, 4.5 inches tall.

To make a smaller or larger hat, size up or down with your hook. I think using a size F hook would make a “newborn-newborn” size hat.

Directions: 

Round 1: Chain 3. Do not join into ring. Skip 2 chain and work 9 DC into the next chain (the first chain you made, further away from your hook). Join with sl st. (10 DC)

Round 2: Ch 2 (counts as first DC). DC into same stitch. Work 2 DC in each stitch around. Join with sl st. (20 DC)

Round 3: Ch 2. DC into same stitch. Work *1 DC into next stitch, 2 DC in next stitch. * Repeat around. Join with sl st. (30 DC)

Round 4: Ch 2. DC into same stitch. Work *1 DC in each of next 3 stitches, 2 DC in next stitch * Repeat around. Join with sl st. (38 DC)

Rounds 5-8: Ch 2. Work 1 DC in each stitch around. Join with sl st. (38 DC)

Round 9: Ch 1 (counts as first SC). Work 1 SC in each stitch around. (38 SC). Fasten off.

For a hat with a roll-up brim:¬†Work pattern as written, but repeat Round 5 for Rounds 5-11, followed by a Round 9 (which is your new Round 12). If you’d like a longer hat, simply work more rows.

Yes, it’s that easy. Enjoy!

Crochet Baby Hat Pattern: Newborn Bear

Crochet Baby Bear Hat PatternMy coworker is having a baby and I could not be more excited! ¬†This coworker (let’s call him “JB”) was the first person to train me at my new job. ¬†As such, JB and I have a “complicated” relationship. ¬†Mostly it involves him trying to hate me and me trying to win his favor. ¬†I will often say “Jay-beee” around the office when I see him and it wasn’t til months later that he confided that he hates that nickname.

Well too bad, JB. ¬†It’s your name! ¬†And get this – JB’s wife is also “JB” and their son–who is due in two weeks–will soon be another JB. ¬†Soooo cute.

JB relentlessly kids about my crochet skills so I thought there would be no better way to finally bury the hatchet once and for all than to make his soon-to-be son a hat. ¬†And so was born (pun intended)….
