Flower Newborn Hat {Crochet Pattern}

Pin It
Wow! A lot of you have been trying out the newborn slippers,
and I'm so glad to hear it.
Always nice to know that I'm not typing all this out for my own sake
(although I guess that would be fine too).
 
And many of you have asked for the pattern for the matching hat.
Welp! Here it is!
 
If you've made the slippers, you'll find this hat super easy.
 
This is the size of hat that I give for moms-to-be at showers,
and I call it a "newborn" hat,
but those of you that know anything about newborn heads
know that they can vary greatly,
but no worries!
I think you'll find that this pattern is easy to add/subtract stitches to make the size you need.
 
So here we go:
 
I use a medium weight 100% cotton yarn and a 5 mm (size J) crochet hook.
*This one is Bernat 'Cottontots' in White and Pretty in Pink
 
I like the cotton because it's good for sensitive skin and it's nice and soft.
Cotton fibers don't stretch quite as much as some others, but if you've not worked with 100% cotton before, you'll acclimate quickly. I promise.
 
Abbreviations:
st- stitch
ch- chain
sc- single crochet
hdc- half double crochet
dc- double crochet
bpsc- back post single crochet
sl st- slip stitch
 
With Color A (mine was white), chain 3 and join to make a loop.
*you'll be making the hat by working around and around this loop.
Round 1: ch 2, 10 hdc in loop, sl st to join. (10 st)
Round 2: ch 2, 2 hdc in each st around, sl st to join. (20 st)
Round 3: ch 2, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st, continue in this manner around, sl st to join. (30 st)
Round 4: ch 2, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 2 st, continue in this manner around, sl st to join. (40 st)
Rounds 5 through 10- ch 2, hdc in each st around, sl st to join.
Rounds 11 through 12- switch to Color B (mine was pink), ch 2, hdc in each st around, sl st to join. bind off.
 
With Color B (for flower), chain 3, join making a loop.
*you'll also be working in the round for the flower.
Round 1: ch 1, 10 sc in the loop, sl st to join to your first sc.
Round 2: ch 1, sc in same st, ch 3, skip 1 sc, sc in the next st (one petal), continue around in this manner to make 5 petals total. For your last petal, after you ch 3, sl st to the first sc to join.
Round 3: ch 1, 5 dc in loop, ch 1, sl st in next sc, continue in this manner around for all 5 petals.
Round 4: ch 1, bpsc around the post of the sc from round 2, ch 5, continue in this manner around for 5 back petals. sl st to join.
Round 5: ch 1, 8 dc in the loop, ch 1, sl st in the next sc, continue in this manner around for all 5 back petals. bind off.
 
Attach your flower to your hat and weave in your ends.
Done and done!

  5. When making the hat larger do you just add extra rows after row 10??

    1. That will certainly make the hat taller. If you would like it to be wider as well, you would have to increase the stitch count.

    2. Ok thanks.... i am trying that. Another problem i am having and I even started completely over on a new hat to see if I was doing it wrong and it did it again. The seam is very obvious and I can't get it to blend in well. I have looked up some videos on how to hide seams and I have tried turning at the end of rows and other techniques but its still obvious. I dont want it to look like a beginner. Even though I am:)

    3. I have found these instructions to be helpful to me in hiding the seam. (I hope it's ok to post this link here, if not, I apologise & please delete!)

  8. Ok so I am just a little confused, it says that it is a 5mm J hook, but a J hook is 6mm. Did you mean an H hook?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yes, I am wondering the same thing. Have you already made the hat? If so, which hook did you use?

  10. Is it ok to sell these? I am making some for a charity fundraiser, and I am happy to provide credit to you on the tag if you wish, but I wanted your permission first. :)
