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.

Total Time: 1 hour


  • "h" crochet hook
  • tiny amounts Caron Simply Soft worsted weight #4 yarn
  • scissors
  • embroidery needle to weave in ends


  1. Chain 5, join to first chain to make a circle.
  2. Chain 3, 13 double crochet in ring. Join to top of chain 3. 14 dc
  3. Chain 3, double crochet in same space as chain 3. 2 double crochet in each stitch around, join to first chain 3. 28 dc
  4. Chain 3, double crochet in same space as chain 3. *1 double crochet in next stitch, 2 double crochet in next stitch.* Repeat steps between * till end. Join to chain 3. 42 dc
  5. Chain 3, 1 double crochet in NEXT stitch and each till end. Join to beginning chain 3. 42dc
  6. Repeat last step 5 more times.
  7. Chain 1, make a single crochet in the NEXT stitch and each around. Join to first single crochet. (You are not making your first sc in the chain space in order to "skip" a stitch and make the circumference a bit smaller.)
  8. Repeat last row 1 time. Finish off and weave in ends.
  9. You may leave as is or add your flower of choice. :) The flower I used is "Sweet Pea".
  10. Enjoy!
