EASY Newborn Infant Beanie Crochet Hat Pattern FREE

This is a free crochet pattern for a newborn beanie. The stretchiness of the infant crochet hat pattern means it is also perfect for donating to hospitals. 

On coming out of hospital newborn babies must be kept cozy and warm as they can rapidly lose weight. Keeping a little crochet beanie on them is advised.

The Pattern is written in US terms. And is made for Adult Large 23-24 inches. 

I used less than 50 grams of Double Knit Yarn and a 4.50mm hook 

TO Start The Crochet Headband 

Ch  21 (20+1)

ROW 1: Sc in 2nd  chain stitch from hook and continue to work 1 single crochet in each of the next chain stitches = 20 single crochets. 

ROW 2: ch2, and work a double crochet into the base of the chain 2, continue Working 1 double crochet in each stitch across, (20)

Row 3: ch1, Make your first single crochet into the  base of ch1, and continue working Single crochet in each st across  (20) 

Continue working a Row2 and a Row 3. 

Repeat until your work measures  8 inches.

Finishing with a double crochet ROW you are now going to divide your work into 2 parts as follows. 

Work 1 SC  in each of the first 10 stitches, turn and work back along with these 10 stitches  

Continue the established pattern of double crochet, single crochet rows, back and forth over thees first 10 stitches until it measures 5 inches from where it was divided making sure that the last row is a Double Crochet ROW. 

Go back to the unworked 10 stitches and join yarn 

Workover the 10 stitches in the same way as the previous length (adjust measurements/rows to make them equal). You need to make sure you END on a double crochet row.

Newborn Baby Crochet Hat Pattern - Perfect Crochet Hat for Donating to Hospitals

This newborn crochet hat is perfect for babies just coming out of the hospital or making a few baby hats in varying colors and donating them to your local hospital.

newborn baby hat crochet pattern for donating to hospitals

 Newborn Babies can lose heat really quickly straight after birth so they require warm hats immediately to help keep them warm and cozy. 

If they lose heat too quickly after being born they can become quite unwell. 

Please check with your local maternity unit on what colors they may need, as some units run a traffic light system and are a fantastic visual aid for the midwives to easily identify babies that may need a little more help and attention in the first few hours. 

RED -  red hats are used for babies who are more at risk and require more regular observations. 

AMBER hats - require just a little bit more attention. 

GREEN Hats - lower risk babies and only require routine observations as they are healthy and a good weight. 

(Please check with the labor Delivery suite midwives if donations are being taken at this time, If your local hospital is not taking donations at this time do not worry there is always a hospital requiring hats. so just keep making)

newborn baby hat free crochet pattern

Or, Like I do, keep a box ongoing, and when there is an urgent request. 

I have several to go at one time. That I can wrap up and send to the labor suite of the hospital. 

What size Do baby hats need to be for the hospitals? 

newborn baby hat to donate to hospitals free crochet pattern

As a guide, the average newborn head circumference is between 13- 15 inches! But recommended hat circumference is 12 inches around 

For this hat, we will crochet in Rows until our HAT measures 12 inches. 

Depth of hat once on head Must be at least  5 inches. 

But it's NOT an accurate science as all baby's heads are different sizes, but we can help make our little hats fit as best we can for those crucial first 24 hours where keeping the heat in the body is a must. 

The reason THIS newborn baby hat pattern is so great for donating to the hospitals is for several reasons. 

1. The BRIM is folded upwards to sit just above baby eyebrows. 

 With many 'beanie type' hats we are kinda judging the length required as not every baby comes out the same,  so crocheting a baby hat with a fold-up brim is great. 

2. The bottom Edging of the hat is lovely and elastic, meaning it can adjust to fit a few sizes. 

3. And finally, the Crochet stitches used Single Croche tin the Back loop makes a nice warm textured piece. 

This is the most asked-for baby hat pattern I get asked to make and sell as part of newborn hats and booties sets I make. 

Crochet Baby Hat Pattern to Donate to hospitals 

newborn baby hat free crochet pattern

Diamond Crochet Blanket ( Ultimate scrap-ghan Project)

 The Ultimate Scrap Yarn Bursting Blanket Pattern.

scrap yarn blanket crochet pattern

I actually started crocheting these diamonds one night, by sheer accident. But I soon realized I could use up all those little odds and ends of yarn, you know the little balls of leftover yarn that are too large to throw away yet not small enough to crochet any one particular thing.

This is one of these projects I have at the side and when I just want to mindlessly crochet for the sake of crocheting something, not needing too big a project, but just keep those hands busy.... ( yup we've all been there) what's great about this is, I never get bored sometimes even when I am working another project and get to the end of it, I see I have enough yarn left and quickly whip up another diamond piece. Any color, the only thing I do need to watch out for is the difference in yarn weight. If it is thicker I go down a hook or finer I go up a hook, but I mostly work in double knit or Aran so it's not too much of a problem.
  Probably like a LOT of us, yarn-holics, I have boxes of small balls of yarn just sitting around in bags collecting dust. You know those ones you think you may need one day yet your yarn stash is just getting bigger and bigger.
I refuse point blank to throw away good yarn, so I wanted something I could make using these odds and ends of wool. BUT some of the leftover bits of yarn were not long enough for even an individual row to make a blanket, not even big enough to perhaps make into squares, so I wanted something that still would look attractive yet not all half-finished rows and join.
So Let me introduce the Diamond Crochet Blanket, perfectly symmetrical in its formation easy to make by simply increasing and then decreasing at the ends of your rows, this is an awesome way to use up those small scraps of yarn and those odds and ends that are just not enough to throw away, yet not big enough for another project.
