Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked from bottom to top and recommends the use of 2 – 3 colors. The yarn in the pattern will be labeled as “color A”, “color B” and “color C”. Color A refers to the color used for the double crochet rounds. This color will be the dominant color for your hat. Color B refers to the color used for the single crochet rounds. Color C, which is optional, refers to the color used for the band and pom pom.

The entire hat portion of this pattern is worked in the back loops only (blo). This creates a ridged texture throughout the hat. Please note that you will always work in the back loops only for this pattern.

There is a beginner-friendly video tutorial available for you to view if you are just learning to crochet or are unsure of reading crochet patterns. If you are an intermediate or advanced level crocheter you will probably not need to view the video tutorial.

Below you will find the sizing information for each hat. Please note that the circumference can stretch 1-2″ when they are worn if needed.

Newborn : Circumference = 12″  Length = 22″

Baby : Circumference = 13″  Length = 23″
