Perfect for when you need a crochet hat in a hurry as a baby shower gift, last minute matching accessory or to take to the hospital as a quick present.
Simple newborn crochet hat which can be worked very quickly. Clever shaping covers little ears without the need for separate earflaps. Shaping is disguised by the subtle use of stitches worked in spaces instead of into the top of the stitch as you normally would.
Suitable for beginners -diagrams included to clarify stitches/methods.
Uses approx 50g/110 yards of yarn (double knit/8ply) and a 3.50mm hook.
Would work for a baby boy or girl. Could easily be jazzed up with flowers, embellishments, ribbons, buttons or bows. Shown here with optional girly picot edging.
