Scalloped Baby Hat Pattern

November 4, 2018 No comments yet

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.

Unicorn Baby Round Ripple

February 14, 2018 No comments yet

Here is a baby blanket I crocheted in a round ripple pattern. I used a Lion Brand Mandala yarn cake in colorway Unicorn to crochet this blanket. I did use a scrap of pink yarn at the center to get things started.

I finished the round ripple with the pink shade that I pulled out of the center of the cake. I wanted to end round ripple blanket with the blues all in one round. Then I pulled out the pink to finish the round ripple with a round of single crochet for trim.

Finished width is 35 inches and I do have a bit of the Mandala cake of yarn left to start another blanket. This blanket is going to a favorite NICU baby blanket drive over at Crochetville.[…]

Ribbed Baby Hats

November 2, 2017 1 comment

It is November and a great time to start making warm hats. I crocheted these baby hats using a pattern from Beverly Qualheim.

It is a free pattern with options for different baby sizes. I found that if I crocheted just 30 stitches to start the hat, it comes out just about right for a newborn baby. The pattern is quick and easy to crocheted and is worked side to side. Once done, you stitch up the seam and gather at the top to close.

The finished size of my hats are[…]

Rolled Brim Baby Hat Pattern

September 25, 2016 No comments yet

I have been crocheting baby hats for our local hospital nursery. Here is a simple crochet baby hat pattern with a rolled brim. The rolled brim idea came up as I had crocheted some hats that were too big and we just turned up the brims to make them smaller and fit the baby’s better.

Here is a photo of the hat not rolled. As the child grows you can just unroll the brim to make a longer hat so it can be worn longer by the child using this feature.

Rolled Brim Baby Hat Pattern

Baby ribbed hat measures:
Newborn = 12 inch cir by 5 inches long (4.5” with brim rolled)
Preemie = 11 inch cir by 4-1/2 inches long (4” with brim rolled)

Hooks:
H (5 mm) US sized crochet hook
G (4 mm) US sized crochet hook preemie babies

Materials: 1+ ounce Worsted Medium Weight or Aran Yarn

Small amount of contrasting yarn if desired for brim
With main yarn color, Ch 3 and join to form ring. Hat pattern is worked in the round without turning.[…]

Baby Round Ripple Blankets

It is time again to start making baby blankets for the 2016 NICU Baby Blanket Drive. Each year Kathryn over at Crochetville makes and collects baby blankets for the yearly delivery just before Christmas. This is the 10th year of the drive and my 7th as a contributor.

Here are two round ripple baby blanket I crocheted this month. Both of these were crocheted using Aggie May’s round ripple pattern.

The centers were crocheted just using up scraps of yarn I had on hand. Then I used pink and white Red Heart yarns on the first one that measures 24 inches wide. The 2nd round ripple blanket was crocheted […]

Crocheted Baby Diaper Covers

April 2, 2015 1 comment

Using crocheted diaper covers is a great way to provide a little extra protection for plastic disposal diapers or as a soaker cover over cloth diapers. I used Boomer Beanies worlds best diaper cover pattern and followed the pattern as written using just a single strand of yarn for my first diaper cover I crocheted. Several other people had used the same crochet pattern and created a double thick diaper cover by crocheting with two strands of yarn held together. I loved this idea and set out to adapt the pattern to create my own variation of a double thick diaper cover.

After playing around with the gauge and size of the cover, I used the original pattern following cloth size 1 as I crocheted the pattern using two strands of worst weight yarn. Changes I made were chain 21 stitches to start using a J (6 mm) crochet hook. […]

Crocheted Baby Sweater

November 3, 2014 No comments yet

I love to hear from people who are crocheting my patterns. I especially love seeing photos and thought I’d share this cute newborn baby sweater that Freya crocheted. She used my Ana sweater design and crocheted her’s using the free newborn sweater pattern for the newborn baby size.

Should you want a bigger sized sweater, here is the original Ana sweater pattern which fits a child 2-3 years old.

The Ana sweater is an easy pattern and the only issue people have found is on the up and down stitch count on the pattern. I’m always here to help should anyone have questions as you crochet this baby sweater. […]
