Baby Heart Crochet Hat
Create this adorable baby heart hat and bootie set! So cute for little ones! The hat follows a simple easy to follow chart. The final hat measures 6.5″ wide by 6″ tall. Make it a set with my matching baby heart bootie pattern HERE.
H hook, 5.00 mm
Medium worsted weight yarn in 2 colors
dc- double crochet
hdc- half double crochet
sl st- slip stitch
– When changing colors, yarn over and pull through with the new color.
– Carry both colors through the graph chart then cut the contrasting color to weave in later. You do not need to carry the contrasting color around the entire round (the color may show through).
Magic circle, ch 2
Row 1: 2 dc into circle 12 times, sl st to join (12).
Row 2: Ch 2, 2 dc in each st around, sl st to join (24).
Row 3: Ch 2, *2 dc in first st, dc in next,* repeat from * around, sl st to join (36).
Row 4: Ch 2, *2 dc in first st, dc in next 2 sts,* repeat from * around, sl st to join (48).
Rows 5-15: Follow graph chart in hdc. Sl st to join after each round and ch 2.
Optional: On row 15 you can alternate colors on each st in the round as shown in the maroon and white beanie.
On last row, insert your hook in the stitch to the right in stead of the left. Continue to sc as usual but you will be working around from right to left instead of left to right. This creates a beautiful edging, also known as the crab stitch. Sl st in last st and fasten off. Weave in all ends.
Cut a long piece of the heart colored yarn and thread through your blunt needle weave in and out around the heart to outline it more and give it better definition. Embroider in any areas that need more of the heart color to fill it out. Fasten off and weave in ends.
You’re done! Great job!
