Crocheted Baby Hat with Flower Pattern

I’ve been inspired to get out the crochet hooks and make some baby hats for some friend’s children.  (I enjoy both knitting and crocheting because there’s very little mess or space required.)  Here is one that I made for Connie’s baby girl who is due in a few months.  (Did you know that Connie and I got to meet back in February?)

Baby Hat Pattern:

Worsted weight yarn with size H crochet hook.

To start: ch 3 and join with sl st to form a loop
Round 1: dc 10 in ring.  Join with sl st to top of first dc made. (10 dc)
Round 2: ch 2 (counts as first dc now and throughout), dc in same st, 2 dc in every st around. Join with sl st. (20 dc)
Round 3: ch2, *dc in next st, 2 dc in next st.* Repeat from* to *. Join. (30 dc)
Round 4: ch 2, * dc in next 2 st, 2 dc in next st.* Repeat from* to *. Join. (40 dc)
Round 5-10: ch 2, dc in every st around. Join. (40 dc)
Round 11: ch 2, *dc in next 12 sts, 2 dc in next st, repeat from * twice, dc in each stitch to the end. Join. (43 dc)
Round 12: ch1, sc in same st,  * skip 2 sts, 5 dc in next st, skip next 2 sts, sc in next st, repeat from *  around. Join.
Finish off.

For flower: Worsted weight yarn and size H crochet hook.

Round 1: With center color ch 3 and join with a sl st to form a loop. Make 12 sc in loop. Finish off leaving a long tail to sew onto hat if desired.
Round 2: Switch to petal color, join to center with a sl st, * ch 15, sl st in same st, sl st in next st and and repeat from *  around. Join. Finish off.

Sew flower to hat.

For more fun and versatility sew or glue flower to an alligator clip and make a couple hats in different colors and flowers in different colors and mix and match.  (So happy that we’re having a girl this time, so we can make all sorts of fun girl stuff for her.)

If you enjoy fiber arts and aren’t a member of Ravelry yet, you should be.  It’s free and is a wonderful resource for patterns (many free), yarn information and just general inspiration and information for knitters and crocheters.  Be sure to look me up over there, I’m Raising Olives of course.

Problems with my directions?  Please let me know, I’m fairly new at writing out directions, but have lots of plans.

Do you enjoy my knitting/crocheting posts/patterns or is it something you’re not interested in?  I’m wondering if I should post more posts like this or if I’m boring you. :)  Is anyone there??

    I wish I knew HOW to crochet or knit – the hat is ADORABLE and I would love to be able to create something so sweet…

    If you really want to learn, I learned to knit using knitting help.com. They have videos that show how to do everything step-by-step. I still use it when I run into wording in patterns that I’m unfamiliar with.

    I learned to crochet when I was little then when I was older I got a frozen shoulder, I went to the library and checked out some knitting books. I learned how to knit, then I went in and took some lessons at a fabric store. I did really good so it’s not that hard to do. If you can find someone that knows how to show you to do either it will be good too.

    I see so many patterns for crocheting but I really would love to see more knitting patterns, especially knitting patterns for flowers.

    You’re not boring me! :)

    Kimberly @ Raising Olives Reply:

    Do you know how to crochet? It’s much easier to create flowers via crocheting, but if you search for knit flower patterns on Ravelry, you can find a lot that are free.

    More knitting patterns…noted!

    I don’t knit/crochet but my girls have been taught how to do simple things by others. They only know how to do 1 basic stitch and can only create things that are square/rectangular. How do I get them past blankets and scarves? Any suggestions?

    Jama you should look into knitting help.com. That’s how Amber got proficient at knitting. It has loads of videos showing all different types of stitches and techniques.

    Hi Susan. I linked to the pattern just under the picture where I say “I used this free basic pattern and added a scalloped edge and the flower.” I did not have permission to copy the pattern on my site, but if you follow that link you can read it for yourself.

    I hope it turns out beautifully.

    What yarn and hook should I use? I would like to use a medium to thicker yarn.
    Thank you

    [Reply]

    Kimberly @ Raising Olives Reply:

    I used a worsted weight with the recommended hook size. So I think a medium to thicker yarn would be ideal.

    This hat is beautiful! I just made two hats for a couple friends who just had baby girls in the last month. However, I did find that I had to change Round 5 to another increase round so that I ended up with 50 stitches. That seemed to be perfect for fitting both the babies’ heads. One of the babies was born with a 15 inch head, so I wanted to make sure it was plenty big. I’m pretty sure I have a tendency to pull my stitches a little tight. Thank you so much for this pattern!

    Thank you so much for the adorable baby hat with flower pattern. I have not crocheted for 20 years and have recently been at home bored after foot surgery (not able to do much) and was looking for something constuctive to do that was enjoyable as well. This little hat was soo easy, that I’m going to make several for the little premie babies where I work. Thank you again..you never know whose lives you touch in a special way…I know the babies & their parents will love them too!

    Hi: I know how to crochet and I had not crocheted
    for a long time. Recently my daughter had a baby girl and there goes Grandma looking of a hat to make for new baby girl…And so I came across your lovely website and found a beautiful baby hat with a flower
    patterned, I could not resist making it. It came out beautiful and the instructions, of course, were great as I am as rusty as can be, but I did not forget how to crochet; I am in love with this simple but very beautiful hat. I am going to make a lot of then in differrent colors and donate then to our local hospital for the for babies in need. And for sure I am going to join this group, thanks again to
    Raising Olives for their kindness in sharing this pattern. Best Regards, CocoAngel

    Aimee,
    Did you ever figure out how to make a larger size? I need to make one for a 6 month old for Easter .

    [Reply]

    Aimee Reply:

    I did!…I actually looked at a few of my other hat patterns to figure it out. When I use “I love this yarn” for this hat, it ends up fitting 3-6 months instead of itty-bitty. So, for the next size up, I just started with 12 dc in the original loop instead of 10…and then continued on. I think I ended up doing 13 rows instead of 12. Good luck!! (It’s such a great hat!)
