How To Create a Super Cute and Easy Crocheted Newborn Cloche Hat

HEY HEY HEY!!!

Hope all is well with everyone.  Have I told you lately I’m going to be a GRANDMA again in October!!!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay now that I’ve got that out of my system until next time let’s get down to business.  

I have created another pattern just for you!  It is a Cloche Hat pattern for a newborn baby or better known as Flapper Hat.  That is if you are old enough to know what a flapper hat is.  LOL  I think I just called myself old.

Emmm…well I seen some cute patterns out there on the web but none quite like this one.  It has a variety of easy stitches that I would consider this pattern easy level.  If you do happen to have problems or questions with it please reach out to me asap.  

The yarn I used was Patrons Astra yarn which is 3-DK weight yarn.  I used one size hook size I/9 which was not what the yarn called for.  It calls for G/6 so as we all know my stitching is looser then if I would have used the G/6.  So if you do decide to make this hat with the hook that is called  on the yarn label then make sure you make stitch count adjustment to ensure your hat measures 12″ circumference & 6″ from crown to brim.  Click below to see clearance yarn and supplies through Craftsy who always has what I need and are looking for!!!  

This hat incorporates the v-stitch using 1/2 dc, knit stitch/camel stitch and the brim has traditional shells to add that little girl cutie pie effect.  I came up with pattern creating newborn items for my grand-baby Skylar Grace coming in October.  Is it October yet???  Oh my gosh I really don’t know if I can wait!  I have created quite a few different ways to finish this hat off.   The first way by using a GREAT PATTERN for a big beautiful flower  I found via Pinterest from Daisy Cottages by Lauren

Large Flower Pattern

The other ways I finished off was to weave ribbon through and tie a bow and added a cute button to the center of the flower.  All of your great creativeness I am sure you can probably come with some other great ideas for these hats.  

So far I have made my grand-baby Skylar 6 of these hats!!!  I know I’m crazy in LOVE already.  Currently I am working on another pattern as i type in-between making all of my Skylar stuff!

Crib mobiles, blankets, sweaters,  booties, socks, sandals, scratch mitts and animals!!! Oh my!!!  I better hurry I only have until October to get finished up.

See below for free pattern and  let me know what you think!

Enjoy

I worked this flower pattern through round 4 for my hat.
If you don’t want to add a flower you could leave it as is or add some ribbon in coordinating color weaving around row 13 of 1/2 dc crochet. See images for ideas.
