A few weeks ago after searching and searching I couldn't find just a simple baby hat that I could crochet. The patterns that I was finding on Pinterest were either too girly, had too many different stitches or just time consuming. So I made up my own pattern. This pattern (for the preemie size) only has 8 rounds so it works up pretty fast and it uses simple double crochet with just one round of decreasing.
Let me know if there are any mistakes in the pattern.
- Caron Simply Soft or similar yarn.
- Size H crochet hook
dc - double crochet
dc2tog - double crochet 2 together (decrease)
sc - single crochet
Round 1: Chain 5. 15 dc in 5th chain from hook, join with slip stitch.
[Begin working in back loops only]
Round 2: Chain 2, 1 dc in same stitch as chain, 2 dc in each stitch to end, join with slip stitch.
Round 3-4: Chain 2, *1 dc in next stitch, 2 dc in next stitch* repeat around, join with slip stitch.
Round 5-6: Chain 2, 1 dc in each stitch to end, join with slip stitch.
Round 7: Chain 2, *dc2tog in next stitch, 1 dc in next stitch* repeat around, join with slip stitch.
Round 8: Chain 2, 1 sc in each stitch to end, join with slip stitch.
