Darling Newborn Hat & Bow Crochet Pattern

I've always felt that babies are a blessing. They are a promise of love, hope and a beautiful future, all wrapped up into one warm and cuddly bundle.
That being said, I decided to create this tiny hat so that all the lovely mummies out there can wrap their newborns head in a sweet little bow.

Top Half:
Row 1~ Taking your 7.00mm crochet hook and snow white yarn, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 25 Chains. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the fourth chain from your hook. Then crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into every stitch all across. You should have 23 half double crochets now.
Row 2~ Chain 2. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into every stitch all across.
When you've completed all the both rows, connect the two ends of the band together to create a circle and Slip Stitch them together.
Fasten off, making sure to cut the strand of yarn at about 20 inches {You'll need it later on}.

Bottom Half:
Row 1~ Taking your 7.00mm crochet hook and snow white yarn, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 13 Chains. Crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into the fourth chain from your hook. Then crochet 1 Half Double Crochet into every stitch all across. You should have 11 half double crochets now.


To join the top and bottom half of the bow, tightly wrap the strand of yarn around the center of the bow. You need to wrap it around the bow at least 15 times. When you've finished wrapping, knot it to the back of the bow.
Then taking your tapestry needle, sew the bow over the stripe in the hat.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.

Hope you all enjoyed this darling little newborn pattern!

  2. is this in UK terms or US? I ask because of the your spelling of "colours" instead of "colors"?

    1. It would be letter L in your row of hooks.

  5. How would be the best way to make this bigger, for a one year old? It already uses a fairly large hook so I wasn't sure about using a larger one.

  6. Try going up to an N hook and then doing a few more rounds. And lowering the area for the bow.
