This cute Rudolph the Reindeer Baby Hat pattern will result in a hat that has a circumference of about 17 1/2” and a hat height from brim to crown of about 7”. This should fit a 6-12 month old baby, but not all baby heads are the same size, so check the size before making it. There is some stretch to this hat, so it will stretch a little bit, if necessary. You can easily adjust the size by changing the size of your crochet hook. If you need to change the height of the hat, just increase or decrease the number of rounds following row 6.

Any bulky-weight yarn can be used for this pattern. The materials listed below are what I used for this pattern, but any bulky-weight yarn will work.

Needed Materials:
2 oz Lion Brand Homespun (Sierra) – hat and ears color (MC)
2 oz Lion Brand Jiffy (Caffe) – antler color (AC)
Small amount Bernat Softee Chunky (Black) – small eye color (BC)
Small amount Bernat Softee Chunky (White) – large eye color (CC)
Small amount Lion Brand Jiffy (True Red) – nose color (DC)
Size K (6.5 mm) Crochet Hook
Tapestry Needle
Small amount of polyfill stuffing

After you have completed round 3, you should have a diameter of about 3 ½”. Please check the gauge, as I do crochet tightly, so you may need to adjust your hook size.

Finished Size:
6-12 months
