Easy Breezy Crochet Newborn Hat

Any little one would look like the princess she deserves to be in this hat! In an hour or less, with minimal crochet skills and a tiny amount of yarn, you will have made a keepsake for years to come.
You may leave the hat plain, or add a flower. Personally, I think big blooms on tiny melons rock!:)
I have used Caron Simply Soft yarn. It is slightly thinner than your typical #4, also very soft.
What a special baby shower gift this would make. It will also cost you next to nothing. Enjoy.

Mini, Medi, and Maxi Hats for Ornaments, Dolls and Teddies

I designed this hat to fit on small dolls and teddies, or to use as ornaments, pins, barrettes, or for wall hangings. You get directions for one, but can make all, the size you want. Mini Hat Ornament

Approximate Time: 20-30 minutes with embellishments


  • cool temp glue gun
  • crochet hook size "E", size "G" and "H" if you go bigger
  • 12 yards double strand thread.
    Less for tinier hat, more for larger. I would not cut until you are done unless you need to mix colors.
  • roses, ribbons, buttons, pearls, beads, feathers, and more
  • scissors


    This hat is smaller when made with one strand, so keep in mind these are both double threads and single yarn.

  1. Row 1: Ch 2, make 7 sc in 1st ch from hook, for 8. Join.

  2. Row 2: Ch 1, make 2nd st. in same st., then 1 in next around for 12. Join. Hat Ornaments Step 1

  3. Row 3: Ch 1, make 1 sc in next st, then 2 in 3rd for 16 around. Join.

  4. Row 4: Ch 3, make 2 more DC's in next 2 st. Skip 1, but ch. 2. Make 3 more around for 4. Join. Hat Ornaments Step 2

  5. Row 5: Ch 4, skip 1, make slst in 2nd st for first loop, then repeat around for 8 loops. Join.

  6. Row 6: Make 1 sc, 3 HD, 1 sc in each loop around. Join and break off. Hat Ornaments Step 3

  7. I measure fingertip to shoulder, then just loop and measure again back to the end. This is for thread work. I just use regular yarn for the larger. You can make a single strand that is about 1.5 inch in diameter if you want. To make it larger work the pattern with jute, rug yarn, etc.

  8. Once the hat is done, you can embellish with ribbon, pearls, buttons, flowers, or just leave simple for a small doll or teddy bear hat, or a lapel pin.

  9. This is a very cute present for teachers, co-workers, that neighbor that always feeds your pets when you are gone, or to keep yourself.

I hope you N-JOY!

Question: Crocheting a Hat With a Star Crown

I am fairly new to crocheting and I want to crochet my son a hat that has a 5 point star as the crown of the hat. How do I crochet between the tips of the star?

By Sharon

Most Recent Answer

By Julie G. [1]11/12/2013

You could do either of the following:
yarn for the crown=A
yarn between the tips=B
1. after crocheting the first row of the first tip, tie and knot the B onto the yarn of the last stitch of A and make stitch(es) with B. Take up the A and crochet the first row of the next tip. Take up B and so on. For row 2 of the crown tips take up the A crochet the 2nd row of the 1st tip, take up the B yarn to your next tip base. Take up the A yarn and so on, row after row.
Just make sure you know which side will be the outside of cap

2. You could always cut yarn A when you attached yarn B(cut B and knot or tie to A), crochet to next place for next tip. Attach yarn A til you crochet to where you need to attach to yarn B again and so on row after row.

The 2nd idea is more neat because you can get a plastic crochet needle and weave in the ends without them being seen on outside of cap.

Question: Crochet Hat Pattern Search

In the late 1970s, probably '75 or '76, I made a crocheted hat from a pattern on the wrap strip of Aunt Lydia's Rug Yarn. I think it may have been called a "cloche", but none of the patterns I find on-line are quite the same.

The pattern used 2 different colors of yarn and I would like to find it to make again. It was a style that really suited my face. In the intervening years, and many moves, the original hat I made is long gone. Anyone out there have old wrap sleeves from Aunt Lydia's yarn that might be able to help me?

Question: Crochet Pattern for Child's Hat With Face on Back

I crocheted a toddler girl's hat in 1981 or 82. It was a hat with a girl's face on the back so when she had it on it looked like she was facing you. It had hair around the face of it and a 4 inch wide band across the top of the head and ties that tied under the chin. Please can anyone help me find it?
