Making a Crocheted 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.

Total Time: 1 hour


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

  7. Repeat last step 5 more times.
  8. 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.)
