This is ideal crochet project for beginners who want to get into crochet baby hats, a great way to learn as you go, and see how the increasing helps make the shape of the baby hats. It is worked in the Round so no messy join line at the back uually created by hats worked in the round and joined, And the inside of the hat is very neat and soft especially important for a newborns head.
So I am excited to bring to you a very easy FREE crochet baby hat pattern.
Great crochet pattern for beginners who want to make something really nice and cute!
Use a larger size hook and or yarn to make the cap for a larger size child. Or a smaller hook and lighter Yarn to make smaller Using the handy measurement table on this page. Once you make one it then becomes easier to work out how to make this bigger, increasing to suit different sizes! So Easy and Simple.

In the picture I Slipped stitch LOOSLEY into BACK LOOP of next stitch to create the edging, for the last 4 rounds to create the border.
To make a BOW:
Chain 1 turn
Slip stitch into top of each chain st (6 rounds, to create a rectangle shape. ) Finish off leaving long tail, use this to attach to the baby hat, and pull in the middle!
(I had never made this before and kind of just thought a bow would suit the color of the hat!
