Girl's FREE Crochet Baby Hat Pattern
For Your Adorable Cutie Pie
By Ashley Herring
I’m so excited to be sharing this free crochet baby hat pattern with you all today.
I designed this pattern for my toddler daughter! It features little bobbles that create the perfect amount of texture but are so easy to achieve.
Using a combination of beginner friendly stitches, you’ll be able to create this adorable hat for your little girl ranging in sizes from Preemie to Toddler.
Designing this pattern, I thought back to when I was pregnant with my daughter. I threw myself into making her a baby blanket, hats, bows, and everything else I thought she might need. With swollen hands and a wiggly baby in my belly, I made pieces that kept her warm and wrapped in love.
Now that she’s bigger, those pieces have been tucked away into her little box of baby things. I like to imagine her finding all of the little hats and blankets I made her one day, with her own little one on the way.
Maybe she’ll be crocheting things of her own by then, maybe she’ll give these pieces new life. Either way, I know the memories and love wrapped up in those stitches.
I hope with this pattern, you’re able to create something with the same sentiment for your little one.
Make it with love and hopes of the future, keep their head and tiny ears warm while making sweet memories, and then pass it on to the next little one, or tuck it away to be found in years to come. crochet beginner hat

Free Crochet Baby Hat Pattern
4 in x 4 in = 32 st x 22 rows
This pattern is a beginner friendly pattern. It consists of basic crochet stitches and provides thorough photos, however it does involve a bit of counting, for this reason I’d recommend using stitch markers.
Sc- single crochet
Slst- slip stitch
Hdc- half double crochet
Hdc 3rd loops - half double crochet in the third loop only (video below to clarify)
To create the bobble, work 1 sc, ch 3 and then slst back into the same stitch, when working the next row, make sure that you push the bobble to the front and work the stitches behind the bobbles so that they all face out in the same direction. See photos below.
This pattern is written in standard US crochet terms
All rows are worked in the round and end with a turn UNTIL working on the brim
If your child is in between sizes, I suggest going with the bigger size and folding the brim over for longer wear.
