Crochet baby hats are so simple to make! This striped crochet baby hat pattern is very easy and a great way practicing how to change colors.
After making this cute little baby hat with a flower, I just had to make another one!
This is very similar to the previous baby hat I made. The main different is the color change and an extra round of stitches.
I really wanted to make one in white and pink and one in white and blue….however, I misplaced my blue yarn. Only to find it after making this hat. Ha! That is the way it goes.
I used Caron Simply Soft to make the hat. I used a green and yellow. Which made me think of my favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers.
You will be using a new color of yarn every 2 rounds. To join the at the end of the second round, I would join with an invisible join.
Then I would join the next color on to make the chain and start the next round. Makes for a clean transition of color.
This pattern is for a newborn.
