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)

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

June 20, 2016 No comments yet

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 […]

More Crocheted Baby Hats

Here are a few more baby hats that I have crocheted lately. I’ve been on a crochet hat-making craze.

Here is a closeup of the ribbed band crocheted hat pattern that I use frequently. You can find the free crocheted ribbed hat pattern here.

All of these hats were donated to my local hospital nursery for the new babies. I was pleasantly surprised last week in the newspaper when I saw […]

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. […]

Baby Blue Vest

November 24, 2014 No comments yet

I crocheted this baby blue vest for a co-worker’s daughter who is expecting a baby boy in a few months.

This baby vest is a newborn size and I used my free baby sweater vest crochet pattern. This is an easy and quick little pattern that takes less than 4 ounces of yarn to crochet. […]

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. […]

Crocheted Childs Ribbed Hats

October 11, 2014 7 comments

Here are some ribbed band hats I crocheted in several shades of yarn in child sizes. Here is a pretty colorful wool hat I crocheted with a ribbed band. I used my ribbed band hat pattern but only worked even on 58 stitches as of round 5 for a child’s size with a 5 mm (H) crochet hook. This resulted in a finished size of 17 inch Cir at band edge and 8 inches long that fit a 2 year old girl just fine.

Here is a closeup of the ribbing on the hat band with full pattern details below.[…]

Baby Pinafore and Booties

September 14, 2014 1 comment

I just finished up crocheting this cute baby pinafore pattern. I used some vintage Good Shepherd Pompadour yarn which is 85% virgin wool and 15% rayon. This yarn is a lightweight sport yarn. The original crochet pattern I used is called Baby Pinafore with Ruffles. I did a few modifications to the pattern which I will detail below.

I used a G (4 mm) crochet hook and lightweight sport yarn to crochet this baby set. Because this yarn is very lightweight, I feel the pinafore is for a newborn size. I would use a heavier yarn and an H (5 mm) hook for a larger baby as my pinafore is not very big.

I joined after row 6 and used a small velcro strip for the back closure. […]

Von-Cott Baby Blue Set

July 11, 2014 No comments yet

I crocheted this baby gift set using some of my vintage Von-Cott sport yarn that I had in my stash. I just love the shade of this sport weight cotton yarn.

The baby booties were crocheted using my cuffed baby sock booties pattern and the hat is my baby ribbed hat pattern. I did work a few extra increases until I worked the hat even on 56 stitches so my hat is about 14 inches wide.

To finish off the set I crocheted one of my diagonal baby bibs using this free crochet bib pattern. I did 20 rows before adding the trim edging row for the bib due to the sport weight yarn.
