KID'S GRANNY HAT (C)


KID'S GRANNY HAT

MATERIALS:
Worsted weight yarn (1.5 ounces total)
Size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook
Yarn needle

SIZES: Baby 16 inch (Child 18 inch)

NOTES:
1. Read through all instructions before beginning.
2. Cut the yarn and fastened off for the color changes.
3. Beginning ch 2 doesn’t count as a stitch, it is there as a filler.
4. Pull the joining slipstitches tight, so that they don’t get counted as a stitch on the following round
5. When attaching a new color make your loop on the hook, then take it off the hook. Insert hook in desired stitch, place loop on hook and complete the slipstitch. That slipstitch counts as your first chain.
6. Each time you fasten off a color, use your yarn needle to weave the end in and out of the back loop of the stitches. Then you will crochet over it.
7. Work rounds 7, 9, 11 with contrasting color.
8. I used Red Heart Super Saver yarns.


Round 1: Ch 3. 12 dc in 3rd chain from hook. Join with slipstitch in top of first dc. [12 dc]

If you only need to to be a bit larger you can use an I hook.

You can work an additional increase round increasing to 60 sts to make it even larger than that.

Good luck.
 
Suzetta, this pattern is exactly what I have been looking for. It is great! Thank you1 But, could you possibly tell me how to make it a little smaller? I am trying to find a matching pattern for a girl and one for her baby doll (an 18in tall doll-American Girl). Would appreciate any help :) Thanks again,
Nichole

I made a 18 inch doll cap, but not a granny one. I made it with sc, increasing 6 sts per round to 36 sts, and then working even.
 
I have made about a dozen of these and I thought I ought to thank you, thank-you. This is my favorite little girl hat. I make them for my daughters, neices, and baby gifts. Love Them! Thanks so much!
 
Wonderful hat! I am a newbie and I was able to make this hat easily. Thank you so much! I made it for my 6 year-old-granddaughter in pretty and pink which is a neon pink. I think she will love it! I have a picture if you would like to see it.
 
I really like this pattern it is a
good way to get rid of alot of scrap yarn.
 
Just like everyone else said, THANK YOU, I have been searching for this exact patter for two hours online! THANK YOU!
 
Suzie: I love your kid's granny hat. I will return for other patterns as well. Thank you, for posting your patterns they are great. Euphemia
 
Suzie, I love this pattern!!! All of my friend's kids want one, and now my friends do too!! Can you tell me what adjustments I need to make in order to make this an adult size?? Thanks so much!!!!~Leanne
 
Check the links on the right hand side, there is one for the adult size.
 
Thank you!!! Leanne
 
Being new to crochet and from the UK I didn't realise that the stitches are different in the us. I believe the DC is actually a triple crochet in the uk - makes somewhat of a difference - it took me a while to realise why it didn't look right!
 
It is true the stitches are named differently. I usually scan a pattern to see if there are clues to if it is US or UK instructions. I look for any sc, also the number of stitches in the turning chains is a clue.

I hope now that you know the differences you will enjoy the pattern.
 
I made the kids granny hat in pink, I love it! I linked back to your page so others can get the pattern. I posted a picture on my blog. I made up a little flower to go on it. I hope you don't mind. Thank you Shawna
 
Glad you enjoyed the pattern.
 
Thank you, Suzetta, for sharing these patterns. They are easy to understand, therefore so doable. I really appreciate them. I'm making them for adults and kids :)
 
I have 6 granddaughters, they'll all have to have a new hat! So sweet thanks for sharing.
Joyce
 
Thanks so much for sharing your patterns!
 
I made my first one in a single afternoon for my friend's little girl and I love it so much that I plan to make a bunch more for anyone who will take one! I made it all one color and attached a big, crocheted flower to it. SO ADORABLE! Like others, I searched and searched for this exact pattern and am SO glad to find it here for FREE!
I plan to try the boys version and the woman's version also (for myself!).
