Coming out of the hospital newborn babies must be kept cozy and warm as they can rapidly lose weight.
And nothing is cuter than a newborn baby wearing crocheted baby hats.

The stretchiness of the infant crochet hat pattern means it is also perfect for donating baby hats to hospitals.
Keeping a little crochet beanie on them is advised.
After posting a recent image of a crocheted baby set I had been asked to crochet for a newborn infant to leave the hospital in.
I was inundated with requests for the newborn Hat pattern to match along with a newborn-sized crochet cardigan.
I like to keep the crochet baby items nice and simple.
And the Baby Beanie I made here is a fantastic beginner-friendly pattern.
My daughter requested a few of these little newborn crochet hats, for my grandson to wear, especially in the first week. 
And we found them invaluable to pop on and off easily.
Especially since it was the colder months.
As you will know I LOVE the Newborn baby Ribbed Hat Pattern, which is an easy beginner-friendly baby hat pattern as it is worked in a rectangle and then the seams are sewn together.
I am often asked what type of crochet hat I recommend to crochet for a newborn just coming out of the hospital.
I have 2 favourite crochet baby hats for newborns.
The Simple Crochet Baby Beanie Pattern(On this Page )  and The Newborn Ribbed Hat Crochet Pattern

The Easy Newborn Crochet Baby Hat Pattern 

The Newborn baby hat is crocheted in row, working into the back loops of the previous rows. The Baby Hat  has a roll-up brim so it easily adapts to the changing sizes required for newborns and lasts a newborn baby afew months.
