This adorable crochet baby hat would add the perfect touch to any little girls outfit. I made this hat for a sweet girl due to arrive next month. This is a perfect gift for a baby shower because it works up super quick, and is an easy enough crochet pattern for beginners. The pattern below is for size 6-12 months, but can be customized using a smaller or larger hook size. I hope you enjoy making this baby hat as much as I did!
Crochet Baby Hat with Bow Pattern
You Will Need:

Start with 12 DC into magic ring
Round 1: Ch2, DC into same stitch as chain, then 2DC in each DC around. Join with a sl st. (24st)
Round 2: Ch2, 1 DC into same st as ch2. *DC, 2DC in next st* repeat from * all the way around. Join with a sl st. (36st)

- Ch 15
- 1SC in each chain to end.
- Ch1, turn. 1SC in each st to end. Repeat for 8 rows, then tie off and weave in ends.
- Take a yarn and wrap around center of your rectangle. Use that strand of yarn to tie the bow onto the hat. I continued to wrap the yarn around the bow as I was sewing it to the hat.
If you prefer, you can add a Crochet Flower instead of the bow. I like to attach the bow and the flower to a hair clip so you can switch it up, depending on your mood or outfit!
