This Baby Sun Hat pattern comes in 3 sizes, perfect for newborns, babies and toddlers (12”, 14” and 16” circumference). It includes a pretty optional flower and some contrasting yarn at the top of the brim that can be adjusted as baby’s head grows!

These baby sun hats were made with Red Heart Baby Sheen, which is a fine/sport weight acrylic yarn, but you can make your sun hats with any comparable yarn you choose. I used less than 1 skein of yarn for the hat, along with 5-10 yards each of 2 contrasting colors for the flower, flower edging, hat edging and trim.

The pattern includes written instructions for each of the 3 sizes, written separately, making it easier to follow the instructions for the particular size you’re making! There are extra photos of each hat size, as well as close up photos of the flower and trim. Also included in the pattern is a link to the online tutorial for working the contrasting edging on the petals of the flower.

Crochet stitches used in this pattern: sl st, ch, sc, hdc, dc, tr, rev sc.
