This was a great pattern. Easy to figure out and you can finish it in an hour or so.
These are superquick and so easy to make. Adorable!
I am new to this site. I worked at a hospital a few yeaars back and some elderly ladies in the community like these to fill up their time in front of the TV. One lady brought in a small garbage bag full to donate wherever we saw fit. We donated to a hospital with a neonatal unit with many babies who were so tiny. They loved them!!! I thought they were too tiny but found they were perfect. Just a thought.
cute hat, i love the purple color
FYI - I'm a maternity nurse and the average newborn head is 13.5". Make sure these are long enough our they will look like a skull cap/yamika [sp]. You can always fold them up. We have little grannies making these for the nursery and they are never long enough.
Thanks, that's a good tip. What do you recommend for the hat depth from crown to brim? I've been using the 6" crochet hook as a guide for both width & depth. Have asked the nurses and they've said the fit is fine, but I don't know any babies to try them on to be sure. :-)
I love this pattern, and have made many many many of them. I only have one problem.... You need more sizes, cause this is the perfect hat for older babies and children too!!!!
Experiment by adding more crown rows and more stitches to the last crown row. If you follow her formula for making larger or smaller baby hats you should be able to work it out.
This pattern was very easy! I have made several to send to a local hospital for newborns!
love this pattern have new grandson coming soon gotta have these
I love this pattern and your hats so cute
wish this was also in knit
Yes, I wish that you have this in knitting pattern, too!
just learn to crochet!
I don't know why this is, but often people who knit have trouble crocheting, and vise versa. I don't crochet fancy, but I can do man stitches and keep guage, but knitting gives me fits. Although I have found the "picking" instead of "throwing" works better for me. I won't give up.. One day I Will KNIT
knitting is softer to babies' heads; have experience with two preemies, too. Soft is very important as well as non-allergic yarn...no wool!
People who normally crochet & want to learn to knit, have an easier time if they learn continental knitting instead of throwing the yarn over. It is because they are holding the yarn in the same way they crochet. I am a yarn thrower. So I am not trying to say one way is better than another.
never heard of throwing or picking!and I can't knit either.
I wound think that if you use baby yarn it would be soft. I love yarn by Deborah Norval..soft and stretchy but my store in town stopped carrying it. Fantastic for scarfs. Would be good for small hats.
These are very cute! I've crocheted doilies before, so I'm thinking that these new born baby hats wouldn't be that hard, Will they be easy?
I've already made one of these and it is easy and works up quickly. Good luck and have fun! :)
Hats are super-easy! I can usually work one up in a few hours (3 or so). I'm an intermediate crocheter and love to stitch up a hat for stress relief because of their ease and quickness. :-) It gives me immediate gratification when I start getting bogged down while working on an intricate or lengthy project, such as a sweater or afghan. Good luck and have fun!
The pattern doesn't say how many stitches to chain at the beginning and is very hard to understand the way it is written.
The pattern was updated on 4/2/12, that version is now in your pattern library. If that doesn't answer your questions, please send an email and I'll be glad to try to help, Jeaniek
Easy and super cute pattern. Made 3 today in pink, blue and white.
I always crochet a baby blanket when I hear of a relative or friend that's pregnant. These little caps would be so nice to include with the blanket. Can't wait to get the pattern & start crocheting.
I make baby hats for the hospitals and these look so nice and easy
Hi everyone. I finished one of each color and donated them to the hospital.They were exited. i love the Fit. PERFECT.
Thank you! This is exactly what I needed to know. My first grandchild (a girl) will be born any day. They said they were getting enough blankets : ( So I was hoping these would fit a newborn so I can send these. Thanks!
I'd like to thank Jeanie for this pattern that works up rather quickly. I have used the hat I made as an inspiration for the Hats for Preemies project my group is working on. I have also posted it on my blog (thecoukkiijar.blogspot.com) and linkied it back to your page here on Craftsy so others may purchase the pattern.
