Basic Beanie in double crochet–Newborn

The beanie hat is the basis for pretty much any hat you will make.   You can customize your completed beanie by adding a face, earflaps, ears, pom poms.  You can crochet your hat in a solid color or in stripes.

This pattern is for a newborn sized hat.  When completed the hat should have a circumference of 12.5″.  Check your gauge at the end of round 4.

What you will need:

  • A size H crochet hook
  • Worsted weight yarn
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Optional tape measure or ruler

Gauge= at end of round 4 circle should measure approximately 4 inches across.  Adjust your hook size accordingly.

Round 1– Using a magic circle DC 10 into loop.  Join and tighten (10 dc).  If you don’t know how to magic circle you can chain 2 and make the 10 dc into the 2nd ch from the hook.

Round 2– ch3.  *2 dc in next st*  repeat from * around and join (20 dc)

Round 3– ch3 *dc in next, 2 dc in next* repeat from * around and join (30 dc)

Round 4– ch3  *dc in next 2, 2 dc in next* repeat from * around and join (40 dc)

Rounds 5- 8    ch 3, dc in each st around, join.

Weave in ends and you’re done!

0-3 Months Sized Crochet Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern

So, from the post above you know how to make a newborn sized hat but what about a 0-3 Month sized?  It’s just as simple.

With many yarns all you would have to do is move up a hook size (an I hook) and follow the same pattern.  0-3 Month hats usually fit up to a 14.5″ head so they’re only an inch more around.   I usually make mine another 1/2″ longer so you may want to add an extra row.

If you prefer the look with your H hook or if you are using a lighter  worsted weight such as Simply Soft or Wool-ease and want to use your H hook just make increases in multiples of 11 up to 44.

Here’s how.

Round 1– Using a magic circle DC 11 into loop.  Join and tighten (11 dc).  If you don’t know how to magic circle you can chain 2 and make the 11 dc into the 2nd ch from the hook.

Round 2– ch3.  *2 dc in next st*  repeat from * around and join (22 dc)

Round 3– ch3 *dc in next, 2 dc in next* repeat from * around and join (33 dc)

Round 4– ch3  *dc in next 2, 2 dc in next* repeat from * around and join (44 dc)

Rounds 5- 9    ch 3, dc in each st around, join.

Weave in ends and you’re done!

Ear Flap Hat for Babies

owl-hat-royal_lime-tot1

Adding earflaps to a crochet baby hat is so easy.

First you need a hat.  If you don’t already have one there is a pattern above for a beanie.  Once you have that crocheted you are ready to add the earflaps.

For the sake of simplicity we are assuming you have created the hat above, you are using worsted weight and a size H (5 mm) crochet hook.

For a baby hat each earflap will be 10 stitches wide.

With the hat laying flat in front of you and the front, right side of the work facing you determine the exact center and place a marker.  We need to leave 1/3 of the circumference of the hat open for the face.  Working with a 40 stitch hat that is going to be about 13 so count 7 stitches to the right of the marker.  This is where you will attach your yarn.

Pick up your hat and slip stitch your yarn.

You will be working 2 rows of 10 stitches and then making a decrease in each row.

  1. ch1, sc in the same and in the next 9 stitches. (10 sc)
  2. ch1, turn.  SC across the next 10 stitches
  3. ch1, turn.  sc2tog, sc across (9 sc)
  4. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (8 sc)
  5. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (7 sc)
  6. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (6 sc)
  7. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (5 sc)
  8. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (4 sc)
  9. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (3 sc)
  10. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (2 sc)
  11. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (1 sc)

Fasten off.

Where to put the 2nd earflap?  Your hat was 40 stitches.  You used 13 for the front, 10 for the first earflap.  You need 10 more for the next earflap so there are 7 stitches left over which will make up the back of the hat.  Working across the back of the hat count 7 stitches and place marker in the next stitch.  This is where you will add your 2nd earflap.

Follow the same process:

slip stitch your yarn,

  1. ch1, sc in the same and in the next 9 stitches. (10 sc)ch1, turn.  SC across the next 10 stitches
  2. ch1, turn.  sc2tog, sc across (9 sc)
  3. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (8 sc)
  4. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (7 sc)
  5. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (6 sc)
  6. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (5 sc)
  7. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (4 sc)
  8. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (3 sc)
  9. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (2 sc)
  10. ch2, turn, sc2tog, sc across (1 sc)

Fasten off.

Add a border

Right now left as is your hat looks a little bit like this.

double crochet hat with ear flaps

Adding a border is easy and will make it look more like this:

Pick the earflap you want to start in.  In the very point of the earflap slip stitch your yarn.

ch1, sc in the same stitch and sc around the entire hat.  Make sure to put one stitch in the end of each row of the earflaps so that they don’t curl.  When you get to the point of the next earflap work 3 sc’s in the same stitch.  Continue around the face and when you get to your beginning stitch add 2 sc’s in there with it before fastening off.

You are done 🙂

Additionally you can use double crochets for your earflaps too like I did on this hat

I still start with the 10 st earflaps for little baby hats but with double crochet I decrease (dc2tog) at the beginning and the end of each row.
