Rolled Brim Baby Hat Pattern

Posted on September 25, 2016

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.

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)
