Baby Mine Crochet Hat

Last year I shared my pattern for the All Mine Crochet Slouch Hat, sized for adults. So this year, it’s time to add the baby, toddler, and child sizes! And since they’re little, there’s still time to whip one up for Valentine’s Day – or any day!

Baby Mine Crochet Hat: free #crochet pattern for babies, toddlers, and kids!

These hats are a little different from the adult version – in particular the brim. This brim has a lot more stretch – so that baby hat will fit almost all year, the toddler hat for the next couple years, and the child version for a few years after than – until they’re ready for the adult version! They’ll be slouchy at the start, and become beanies as the kids grow. (And of course, if you want to make the adult version with this brim, that works too – just use the exact same stitch count!)

    I’m so excited I found your pattern. I make baby beanies for a hospital and this one is just perfect. Got to put down my latest project and find my baby yarn!☺

    You always provide such a lift and inspiration.

    I am making mittens and hats for charities right now for toddlers, child, and teen sizes. I prefer working in a spiral from fingertips down to cuff, but a size chart would help no matter what the construction.

    Do you have a size chart that gives inches from the fingertips to thumb opening and from thumb bottom to cuff? I am never sure how many rows to make that will accommadate and be relative to the circumference. I don’t want to make dozens of items that cannot be used.

    Thank you.

    Very cute! Loved it! Very clear and concise pattern. Mine doesn’t have as much slouch but my gauge per row was off! Thanks for the free pattern!

    I seem to be having trouble. I made the child size and it seems very long, also my hearts arent as clean looking as yours. Do you have any pictures to show where those stitches on either side are supposed to go?

      Tamara Kelly says

      Did you get gauge? The optional instructions at the end of Rnd 6 make a big difference! The photo above the child instructions is the best picture I have.

    I am trying to start the hat baby mine crochet hat, and I am having trouble understanding the beginning of how the first row is started. Do I chain 40? I have not started a pattern before where it doesn’t state to chan first. Please help. Thanks Claudia

      Hello Claudia! This pattern begins with foundation stitches, which eliminate the need to use a starting chain. There is a link to the tutorial at the beginning of the pattern. :)
