Pattern Notes

1. Two options are given for Round 1 with or without a magic ring. You can choose whichever one you are comfortable with.

 

2. If you start with a magic ring, take special care to weave in the beginning tail securely going back and forth at least 3 times. You don’t want your magic ring to open up and make your hat fall apart.

 

3. If you work your first round without a magic ring, you might have to use the beginning tail to close any holes left on the crown before weaving in the rest of the tail.

 

4. First 3 Rounds are common for all the 4 sizes. After working those proceed to Round 4 for the size you are making.

 

Round 1(with magic ring): Make a magic ring and work 8 sc into it, close the ring, do not sl st and do not turn.——–8 sc

 

2. Round 1 without a magic ring

 

Round 1(without magic ring): Ch 3, 2 sc into 2nd ch from hook, 4 sc into next ch, you will now end up below your foundation chain, 2 sc into the next free loop of the foundation chain, do not sl st and do not turn. See pic 2 above. ——–8 sc

 

Round 2: 2 sc in next st( the first st of Round 1), place a marker in the first st you just made, 2 sc in next 7 sts until you end in the st right before the marked one, do not sl st and do not turn.——16 sc

 

Round 3: 1 sc in next marked st, move the marker up into the first st you just made, 2 sc in next *(1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next), repeat from * until you end in the st right before the marked one, do not sl st and do not turn.———24 sc

Round 4: 1 sc in next marked st, move the marker up into the st you just made, 1 sc in each st across until you end in the st right before the marked one, do not sl st and do not turn.———24 sc

 

Repeat Round 4 three more times until your hat is 4-1/2 inches tall. Do not fasten off yet.  Fold your hat flat. I found that it lays flat in some directions more than the others. Experiment to find the best fold, so it becomes easy to attach the ears.

 

 

3. Work sc sts until you reach the side and sl st to the side.

 

Once you fold the hat, most likely your marker won’t be on the side fold. So, take out the marker and continue working sc sts until you reach near the side of the hat. It might take you one or more stitches depending on how you folded it and the size you are making.

 

Last Round: Sl st to the BLO of the next st on the side fold, ch 1, 1 sc in BLO of the same st as ch 1, 1 sc in the BLO of each st across to end, Sl st to the first sc. Fasten off.—-24 sc

 

Ears (make 2)

4. Run the needle along the base of the ear and cinch.

 

5. Completed ear

 

Row 1: Ch 3, 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 2 sc in next ch, turn—–4 sc

 

Row 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in same st as ch 1, 2 sc in remaining 3 sts, fasten off with a 15-inch tail for sewing.—–8 sc

 

Attaching the Ears

Thread the long tail left on the ears and run your needle in and out through the straight base of the ear, pull to cinch. The tighter you pull, the smaller your ears will look.  Repeat with the other ear.

 

Place both the ears along the sides of the hat and find the position you like best. Sew them along the fold of the hat on either side.

 

Finishing the Newborn Crochet Hat

Make sure you read the pattern notes give at the beginning of the pattern and then weave in any tails left.

Round 4: 1 sc in next marked st, move the marker up into the st you just made, 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 11 sts, 2 sc in next, 1 sc in each st across until you end in the st right before the marked one, do not sl st and do not turn.——-26 sc

 

Round 5: 1 sc in marked st, move the marker up into the st you just made, 1 sc in each st across until you end in the st right before the marked one, do not sl st and do not turn.———26 sc

 

Repeat Round 5 three more times until your hat is 5 inches long. Do not fasten off yet.  Fold your hat flat. When I tried to fold the hat with the marker on the side, it wouldn’t lay flat. Experiment to find the best fold, so it becomes easy to attach your ears later.

 

Once you fold the hat, most likely your marker won’t be on the side fold. So, take out the marker and continue working sc sts until you reach near the side of the hat.

    After 3 rounds my diameter is 3.5 inches. I’m using an N hook and bernat blanket yarn. I tend to crochet really tightly, do you have any tips?

      You can switch to a bigger hook or add more rounds.
