(Yeah, I'm pregnant.:P)

 

Please note that I am left-handed. That should not affect the pattern much, but you might need to crochet in BLO where I say FLO & vice versa.

 

Gauge: With G hook, 3 rows of 4 HDC = 1".

Finished Size: Approx. 14" circumference; sized for a newborn (Many thanks to the lady who mentioned newborn heads are about the size of a grapefruit; I did indeed measure the one grapefruit we have in the house & found it to be the circumference my books all say is the same as a newborn's head.)

Materials:

G hook

approx. 1.5 oz white sport/baby weight yarn

small amount blue sport/baby weight yarn (use pink for a girl's hat; yellow or green for a unisex one) Yarn used for sample is Red Heart Baby Soft pompadour. Unfortunately, I think my 16-month-old ate the label so I can't give you an exact name for that pretty dark blue.

stitch marker or bobby pin to use as stitch marker

yarn needle

 

 

Chain 2.

Rnd 1: Sc 7 times in 2nd chain from hook. DO NOT JOIN. Place marker in last stitch, move as needed to keep your place. 7 sc

Rnds 10 - 14 HDC in each st around. 56 HDC.

Rnd 15 Working in FLO (or, the loop closest to you), HDC in each st around.
