The Ridged crochet baby crochet hat is made side to side, which means there is a lot more stretchy and a lot of giving, than some of the baby hats crocheted in the round. 

I initially made this little hat whilst awaiting the arrival of my grandson, my daughter had gone into labour early but then we ended waiting on him to appear.  So I was playing about with the stitches. 

For this pattern, I am going to call the stitch  half double crochet worked into the 3rd front-facing diagonal stitch loop at the front of our work  =  HDC3rd loop

we are going to work 

Half Double Crochet worked into the 3rd front-facing diagonal stitch loop at the front of our work for each ROW 

This is NOT the camel stitch,  this way of working shows a knit look ridge on both sides. 

Working HDC3rd loop for this pattern creates nearly an identical look to knit 1, purl 2

It’s a great crochet stitch for hats that you want to make with a brim as the pattern carries on both sides 

This means we will be working in the Slanting stitch of the HDC on each side when we turn and work faces us which produces this knit and purl look crocheted ribbed texture.  

Until you are familiar with where to place your hook i find it easier to identify the diagonal loop before starting each row.

The 3rd diagonal loop 

Please NOTE: 

I am an extremely loose crocheter you may need to go up a hook size or adjust your tension and stitch count  to reach desired measurements 

I will add in measurements for bigger sizes if there is enough interest for them
