Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Make these patterns your go to for baby gifts, charity drives, and all the precious babes in your life! These baby hat crochet patterns were designed to fit babies from birth through their first year. I’ve included two sizes below … a newborn hat for newborns through 6 months and a baby hat for 6 months through 1 year. And of course since babies all grow at different rates I included the circumference and hat height for each so  you can gauge the size you would need for your baby.

Baby Hat Crochet Patterns … Sizes Newborn through 12 Months

Here’s what you will need:

Gauge: approximately 11 hdc and 9 rows = 4 in.

Note: I prefer starting rounds with a ch-1 followed by the first st of the round because I feel it leaves a less obvious “seam”; however, if you prefer the more traditional ch-2 start, count the ch-2 as a stitch and use it in place of the ch-1 and the first hdc (end of round stitch counts should remain the same). 

Front Post Double Crochet (FPdc): Yarn over and insert hook from the front around the back and to the front again around the post of the stitch in the previous row. Complete as a regular double crochet.
