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.[…]
Using my Ana sweater vest pattern, I crocheted this baby vest using a sport weight yarn vintage yarn called Von-Cott in baby blue. I followed the exact pattern directions using 2 skeins or 3.5 ounces of the sport weight yarn. Finished vest size should fit a 6-12 month baby with measurements 9-1/2 inches wide by 12 inches long.
Here is a closeup of the baby sweater vest.
I also crocheted a ribbed band hat using the vintage Von-Cott yarn. I followed the child’s size crocheted ribbed hat pattern. I needed to make the hat just a bit larger as I was using the sport weight yarn and a G (4 mm) hook. So I followed the child’s pattern details through round 5.[…]
I have been crocheting purple baby hats for the PURPLE baby crying awareness campaign. PURPLE Crying is a program to help parents, caregivers and others understand this normal increased crying in healthy infants and prevent abuse such as shaken baby syndrome.
Details for the hat drive can be found here. They do ask that the hats be at least 50% purple in color and be simple with no straps or hanging pom poms etc.
Here is the baby size hat pattern that I adapted from the adult crochet hat pattern for this project. I have options in the pattern directions below for a 3-month old baby, newborn, and a preemie sized hat.
Enjoy the free crochet pattern and I hope you will support this is very important baby awareness campaign by crocheting or knitting a purple hat.

I’ve been busy lately crocheting more hats for the Warmth for Warriors group. One of my on-line group friends crocheted a cute hat using a ribbed stitch style that I really liked. After some help from Ellen, I finally got the pattern created. Below is the written crochet hat pattern that I created featuring the ribbed band that was inspired by Ellen from our Ravelry group.
The two-toned wool hat is my favorite using the crochet pattern so far. I used the pattern below and at round 7 switched from the olive green to the oatmeal colored wool yarn. Then you alternate every other round in the two colors ending at round 20 with the olive green yarn. I carried the yarn not in use behind by just dropping it at my joining slip stitch. When you come back around you just pick up the dropped color at the slip stitch.
At row 21, I began the ribbing with the olive green wool. Make sure you use the same color in round 20 that you use for the ribbing so the first round of ribbing matches that you are working the front and back posts around.
Here is another version of the ribbed hat and in an extra large size. This one is crocheted all in one color and was designed more as a helmet cap to fit under a soldier’s helmet. I started with 16 double crochet (Dc) stitches and only went to round 15 following my original crocheted helmet hat pattern. I then added the ribbing rounds to complete the hat. It measures 23″ for a circumference and is 8-1/2 inches long.
As you can see you can change up the pattern’s fit and look by working in half-double (Hdc) or double crochet (Dc) stitches. And by working in stripes or all in one color of yarn. I have also included changes to crochet this hat for a child’s head size.
Have fun with the pattern and as always happy crocheting to all.
