Crochet an adorable baby hat! The hat comes in preemie, newborn, 3-6 and 6-12 month sizes, and there is instructions on how to add pompoms, spikes, and two kinds of animal ears. This pdf will allow you to make any of the hats pictured here. Simply make the hat then add whatever animal embellishments you want. Gauge is 4 sts an inch when working in hdc. I used a 4.0mm hook.

This tutorial is made into a Youtube video for ease of use.

Video for just the basic hat can be seen here.
Video for the spiked hat can be seen here.
And the video for both the animal eared hats can be seen here.

You will need:

  • 1-2 colors of worsted weight yarn, 100 yards for the hat and 25 yards for any embellishments.

  • Size 4.0, or 4.5 crochet hook.

  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends.

  • A cute little baby head to put the finished item on.
