Merry-Go-Baby Hat- Free Pattern

20160116_102531

This little hat will fit a child about 3 months to 6 months old. It is made using Front Post Double Crochet stitches. If you’re not familiar with how to work this stitch, you can read a tutorial HERE. Once you get the hang of it, it’s very easy, and addictive 🙂 It is worked in the round with sport weight baby yarn. I can’t remember the color I used, as once again I’m using leftover yarn (and I don’t have the label anymore), but I do know that it’s Bernat Baby Sport.

There is no trim on the hat, but the last round will curl up slightly. I played around with different stitches for a trim, but in the end found that the hat looks much cuter with a little curl. But that is only my personal opinion. Feel free to add a trim to yours 🙂

20160111_105116

“You Are My Sunshine”

Infant’s Hat Pattern

© Amanda Bryant 2016

Unable to purchase any new yarn for the time being, I’ve been using up what’s in my “left-overs” stash.  The yarn I used in this hat is Red Heart Soft Touch in the color Lemon. Unfortunately, the camera on my phone doesn’t do the color any justice. It is actually much brighter than what you see in the photo. You can check out the Red Heart website for a better image of what the color looks like (click here to go to the page). The pattern below includes instructions for size 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and 6-12 months. (The 6- 12 month size fits my 13 month old daughter nicely.) I really love how this little hat turned out. The edging on the brim reminds me of little pointy rays of sunshine 🙂 Anyhow, I really hope you like this pattern. Any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
