Free Crochet Pattern Baby Bonnet Star Stitch Star is Born Baby Bonnet

A free baby bonnet Crochet Pattern. for a Newborn Baby. You all know I love Baby bonnets, and I am in love with the Little Star Stitch Baby Bonnet.

baby bonnet crochet Pattern Free - Crochet Star Stitch baby bonnet

This is a 0 - 3 months-sized baby bonnet. But it is so easy to make for bigger sizes following the handy size chart I have included for you.

The bonnet matches the A Star is Born Baby Cardigan, which is also a free crochet pattern on my website. The booties were made following Oliver Baby Booties pattern which you can find HERE. However, note instead of a Ribbed cuff I finished with a few rounds of Hdc and then worked a complete 2 ROWS of the Star Pattern.

Booties - (I changed the Ribbed cuff with a few rounds of HDC and 2 rows of a star sttich pattern 
Baby Cardigan Crochet Pattern

The star stitch may look complicated but it is actually very easy and once you are in the swing of it it works up quickly, it gives a lovely cushiony textured stitch, and of course, looks so pretty. 

The star stitch can be known as the Marguerite stitch too.

How to crochet the star stitch

star stitch  crochet pattern to make a baby bonnet

Make a chain. 
Insert hook in first stitch of chain. Draw a loop through each of the first 5 stitches of chain. 
You should have six loops on your hook. Yarn over the hook and draw it through all six loops on the hook, close the cluster by chaining 1.
I like to think of the star stitch as a stitch that has 7 movements to complete 1 whole star including the ch1 to close
Many older and vintage patterns using the star stitch call for the yarn to be cut at the end of each row and start at the same side every row. But by making the second row of 2 single crochet in the EYE of the previous rows of stars, means we can work in neat rows. And less ends to weave in.

What you will need to crochet the bonnet - Materials Required 

For the pink Bonnet in the picture, I used a 5.00mm hook
Patons Aran
And for the Cream one I Ised a 4.50 hook and Aran weight yarn 

NOTES: Leave a long chain at the beginning and USE THIS to sew the 2 sides together. 
When you fold the finished piece ROW 1 Chain is Sewn together to make the BACK of the Baby Bonnet. 

Abbreviations used Terms are all written in the US.

To make this bonnet bigger sizes (measure the length of a child from the Top of the head to the middle of the bottom of the ear to the middle of the under the chin! I have included a handy size chart for reference, ensure you have an even number on your chain.
Average measurements are given below. Double The Bonnet Height top to bottom measurement 


            Head Circumference |    Bonnet Depth    |   Bonnet Height
                                                   (Front to Back)     Top to Bottom 
                                                                                            (chain length to start) 
Newborn      13"-14"                             5"                             5.25" x 2 = 10.5 inches 
0-3 months    14"-15"                            5.25"                       5.75" x2 = 11.5 inches
