Cap is worked sideways in half double crochet rib to allow for stretch. The ribbon can start out in the lower row of eyelets and moved up to the top row to grow with the baby.


Small amount of sports weight yarn
15 inches of ¼ inch ribbon (optional)
G (4.5MM) crochet hook

Gauge: 9 sc = 2", 5 hdc rows = 2"

Note: Ch 2 at beg of hdc rows does not count as a stitch.


Ch 22 (24).

Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and in ea ch across (21 (23)sc)

From now on work all rows in the BLO (back loop only).

Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in first 2 sc, ch 1, skip 1 sc, sc in next 2 sc, (skipped stitch forms eyelet), ch 1, skip 1 sc, sc in next sc, hdc in next 14 sc (21 (23) sts)

Row 4: Ch 1, turn, sc in first 2 sc, ch 1, skip 1 sc, sc in next 2 st, ch1, skip 1, sc in next st, hdc in hdc across (21 (23) sts)

Rows 5-26: Repeat rows 3 and 4.

Joining: Ch 1 and turn, holding beginning row together with last row, slipstitch through both thicknesses to a form tube, (you will be going under three loops one on the back and two on the front).

Cut yarn and fasten off.

Weave in ends.


Weave ribbon or chain about 15 inches and weave through holes formed by eyelets. Gather top of hat, and tie in bow.

I just made this gorgeous little cap for my daughter who will be born in March. I am a beginning crochet-er and didn't count incredibly well, but it went together beautifully and I love the design. Thanks for publishing this pattern!
I have made several hats from your pattern and used different size hooks.. I also added a few stitches of my own just to give the hat a little different look... many thanks for all the great patterns you have shared with CP members... right now i am making scarves for the homeless people in Ohio from your patterns.. Hope you have a super great Holiday session..June--Michigan
How can I make this in a 3-6 month size?
I would chain enough stitches to be about 6 inches long and work enough rows so that the cap would stretch to about 15-16 inches for that size.
