Easy Striped Crochet Baby Hat Pattern

If you missed my latest blog post, I recently worked on my first knit baby blanket. You can see it here. I was so blown away by the response to it, that I decided to work up a crochet hat to go along with it.

Knowing how to crochet a hat is so simple, and crochet baby hats are always fun to work on. I know you’ll love this crochet baby hat as much as I do.

This cute pattern is made using a simple design with two stripes at the bottom and a textured border. I like to use light shades such as mint and grey for mine, but you can choose any colors.

These crocheted hats use a series of basic crochet stitches. They all add texture and style to this otherwise simple baby hat crochet pattern.

This is a great crochet newborn hat pattern. I made the knit blanket for my daughter’s gymnastics coach who is expecting. This hat baby beanie would be the perfect addition to my gift.

If you’re just learning how to crochet a baby hat, making some for a local charity is great practice. I like to donate baby caps to local hospitals and women’s shelters to help out.

This newborn hat is made out of Berroco Vintage DK weight yarn. It’s smooth and silky, perfect for a baby’s soft skin. It’s an acrylic wool blend and has a polished finish.

These crochet baby boy hats or girl hats can be made for 0-3 months or 3-6 months. It’s really easy to adjust the size. They’re the perfect baby winter hat to keep little ones cozy this season.
