Stripy Newborn Baby Hat – Free Crochet Pattern

12924392_10153510857051914_8118934453759247185_n

To accompany the stripy cardigan I designed, I wanted to create some accessories too. I had loads of yarn left over so I thought a hat would be ideal.

Materials

I used Marriana Super Sofy Baby Double Knit in Mint and White. I have written a blog post here about it.

Hook: 4.5mm

To create the stripes you need to change the colour of the yarn in every row. I have not added this fact to the pattern. Do not turn after every row.

Pattern written in US terminology.

Abbreviations

ch:  chain

sc: single crochet

dc: double crochet

sts: stitches

*****Every dc in this pattern is worked into the back loop of the stitches in the previous round *****

Row 13: Ch 1. 1sc in each st around making sure the stitch is created in the back loop of the sts in the previous round. (52sts)

Row 14: Ch 1. 1sc in each st around in both loops of the sts in the previous round. (52 sts)

Fasten off.

 

And there you have it. A newborn baby hat. The one I created has a circumference of approximately 36cm.

 

Hope you enjoy creating the hat.
