Scalloped Baby Hat Pattern

Posted on November 4, 2018

Here is a new crocheted baby hat pattern to share. It combines a scalloped edging that I have posted before but I added it to a hat mainly worked in the round. I like this crochet pattern as the hat doesn’t have the normal joining. Therefore it doesn’t have the noticeable line running down the back of the hat where the joining was made.

Below you will find the free crochet pattern for this hat. Please use it freely for gifts, charity and fundraisers. If you use a contrasting yarn for the scalloped edging, just join the new yarn and chain 1 on the inside edge of the hat. Then work the scalloped edging instructions as written.

Pink Scalloped Crocheted Baby Hat

Scalloped Baby Hat Pattern
H (5 mm) crochet hook for newborn size – 4.5” long by 12” Cir – Gauge 3 HDC rows=1”, 4 HDC sts=1”

G (4 mm) crochet hook for preemie size – 4” long by 11” Cir- Gauge 7 HDC rows =2”, 10 HDC sts=2”

Baby weight yarn (light 3) – 1 Ounce of yarn

Ch 3 to start and join to create a ring or use a magic circle to begin.

Don’t turn work until you are directed to do so on the scalloped edging.

Round 1
Ch 2 (counts as first HDC) and work 11 HDC into the ring. (12 HDC)
Join with slip stitch to top of Ch-2.

Round 2
Ch 2, work HDC in same St, and 2 HDC in each st around. (24 HDC)

Don’t join after last HDC. You will now begin to work in the round without joining or chaining to start a new round. Use stitch marker if desired.

Round 3
*SC in next st, 2 SC in next st*. Repeat between * around. (36 SC)

Round 4
*HDC in each of the next 2 sts, 2 HDC in next st*. Repeat between * around. (48 HDC)
Width should be approx 3.5” wide for newborn and 3” to 3.25” wide for preemie at this point.

Round 5-14
HDC in each st around. (48 HDC)
On the final round of the hat in the last 3 stitches of the round, end with SC in last 2 stitches and slip stitch into final stitch of round. Don’t worry if edge doesn’t look exactly even as you will be folding over the scalloped edging and it hides the edge.

TIP: You lose about an half inch once the scalloped edging is added and you fold over the edging. Add another round if needed at this point to get the desired hat length.

Scalloped Edging:

Ch 1 and turn to inside. SC in back loops only (BLO) working from the inside of the hat so the scallops will face out once folded to the outside of the finished hat. Join with a slip st to Ch-1. (48 SC)

Still working from the inside of the hat but working in both loops of each st, Ch 1, *SC in next st, skip 2 sts, work 8 DC in next st, skip 2 sts*. Repeat between * around and end with a slip st to beginning of Ch-1 to finish the round uniformly. If the stitch count is off you can work one less skip as needed to get the round even for the scallops. (8 scallops total)

FO and weave under ends.
