Crochet baby hat pattern

 This sweet crochet baby hat pattern was designed to match my mitten patterns, with a ribbed band around the bottom and a crocheted button for embellishment.  The pattern is written in the same yarn as the “Sweet Little Rounded Mittens” pattern, Valley Yarns Valley Superwash DK.  Online shadecard and ordering here

The pattern is written in sizes: preemie, newborn, 6 mo, 12 mo, 2 yr, and 3 yr.  I’ve hesitated to write a baby hat pattern before because baby head sizes can vary so much.  For instance, my baby’s head circumference is 19 inches, but according to the Craft Yarn Council of America standard body measurements, that is the head circumference of a teenager.  All of my girls have larger than average head circumferences.  That’s just the way they were made. 

So, when I made her hat, I custom made it to fit her head size, and this is ideal.  If you can, measure the baby’s head before you begin, plan for 2 inches of negative ease in the circumference.  Measure from ear lobe to ear lobe over the crown of the head, divide by 2, and make the height of the hat based on that.  If you can’t measure the baby’s head before you begin then just go with the pattern sizes as they are written. 

So, I hope that you enjoy it!  It is available on both Etsy and Ravelry.  Below are some more adorable pics of Baby wearing her hat.
