Crocheted baby hat - the take-along version

This is the crocheted baby hat from the previous post, but here is a condensed version of the instructions so you can print them out and take them along with you on your summer road trips, to the doctor's office, the ball field, the pool, the beach, wherever you will be spending time and still want to keep your hands busy. Once you have made a few, you won't even need to look at the pattern anymore. It's THAT easy!



Use sportweight yarn and size G crochet hook. If you want a smaller or bigger hat, use either baby yarn or worsted weight yarn and the appropriate size hook.

NOTE: Beg ch 2 does not count as a st in this pattern.

Beginning at top of hat, ch 4, sl st in first ch to form ring.

Round 1: Ch 2, work 13 dc in ring, join with a sl st in first dc. 13 sts.

Round 2: Ch 2, do not turn, 2 dc in each st around, join with sl st in first dc. 26 sts.

Round 3: Ch 2, do not turn, dc in first st, *2 dc in next st, dc in next st, repeat from * around ending with 2 dc in last st, join with a sl st in first dc. 39 sts.

Round 4: Ch 2, do not turn, *dc in first two sts, 2 dc in next st, repeat from * around, join with sl st in first dc. 52 sts.

Round 5 – 13: Ch 2, do not turn, dc in each st around, join with sl st in first dc.

Round 14: Ch 2, TURN, dc in each st around, join with sl st in first dc.

Round 15 & 16: Ch 2, do not turn, dc in each st around, join with sl st in first dc.

Round 17: Do not turn. (Ch 1 and sc) in each st around, join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Turn up bottom of hat for brim.

Happy crocheting!

  • thanks for posting this. I was in the hunt for a nice simple infant hat that I could make several of and then donate to our local hospital's birthplace. I found the photos very helpful as I was able to get a sense for the hat as it was being made :)
