Crochet Baby Hat Size 6 – 12 months, Advanced Level Free Pattern


Whenever I make a new baby blanket, I also try to come up with a matching baby hat pattern. A handmade baby blanket makes a nice gift, but a baby blanket and a hat make even nicer gift set.




So here is a free crochet pattern for a baby hat made in same stitch as the Green Baby Blanket. As I was making it, I aimed for a smaller size (either newborn or 3-6 months), but my baby hat came out quite bigger than intended. It measures about 17 inches in diameter and 7 inches in height, which would be a  6-12 months size.

Since until now I didn’t have any baby hat patterns in this size, I decided not to remake/rewrite the pattern. Besides, this is not an easy pattern and it took me a lot of work and figuring out.

So I stress it out again, it's a difficult pattern; in fact, it's the most difficult one of all the hats I made and wrote patterns for. If you are a beginner crocheter, this is not the best project to start. Check out other free baby hat patterns on Lacy Crochet.
