Pattern Description:

This cute little buggy hat was inspired by the birth of a friend's baby. I wanted to create something girly, but fun to keep her little head warm. I also wanted to cater to those who are frustrated by the lack of little boy hats (I had 3 boys before my daughter so I know how it is!). So I created this design to be more than just a ladybug hat. Colors can easily be swapped out to make it a fun little critter hat for the boys!

This sweet bug hat is quick, easy and fun to make and looks adorable on any little one! Great for everyday wear, it also doubles as a cute photo prop and would be the perfect finishing touch on a ladybug costume!

Psst! It also comes in preemie sizes! Perfect for charity donations. Or make a miniature for your little one's doll.

Skill level: Easy

Pattern includes all sizes from preemie (or doll) right up to adult.

This hat can be made with any worsted weight (#4) yarn.

Patterns are easy to follow and are explained in simple terms so even those new to crochet should be able to read and understand them with ease.
