THIS is an easy, free baby crochet hat pattern with a very pretty example crocheted in lavender and white.

HERE is an easy basic pattern in size Newborn to 3 months with instructions for a preemie baby hat or "going home" size.

THIS hat for a baby girl has a cluster of crocheted cherries dangling from the crown; it's adorable.

THIS precious little crochet pixie hat buttons under a baby's chin and has a gorgeous tassel on the tail. The example in the picture is crocheted in a (not so cute; just my opinion!) rust color yarn but would be precious in pink, blue or lots of other (more attractive?) colors.


THIS is so EASY and works up FAST! It can actually be crocheted in one night which is good because you will want to make one for yourself and as gifts for all of the teen girls that are going to fall in love with it.


THIS crochet baby snowman hat can be worn all winter and there is a snowman baby booties pattern offered if you are interested.

THIS candy corn baby hat is perfect for an infant's first Halloween costume. It is crocheted in yellow, orange and white and there is a pattern for a crochet baby pumpkin hat on the same page.

If anyone finds a pattern that features a faux ribbed look for preemies and newborns please let us know so that those of us who wish we could knit can have an opportunity to make a piece with the look of a knitted baby hat without actually learning to knit.

Find LOTS of patterns at Bev's Country Cottage including baby hat patterns to crochet with a shell stitch, bobble stitch and others.

We are always looking for more crochet baby patterns to add to our list. If you know of a great blog that features cute crochet patterns or other types of cute crochet baby items on a regular basis, by all means tell us all about it. Every now and again we need to see free baby crochet hat patterns that others are involved with to get ideas for items that we would like to make.

Seeing pictures of cute stuff that we could be making ourselves (if we would just pull out those skeins of yarn and start crocheting) provides motivation and inspiration to those of us who can’t seem to wing it alone. Needlework can be a solitary pastime, but if we can make those connections maybe we can change that by providing lots of easy, free baby crochet hat patterns and building a community where we can swap yarn, patterns and tips!

You can always upload your pictures even if the patterns are copyrighted.

A key at the top of the instructions indicating which crochet stitches will be used to make the baby hat along with yarn and hook size recommendations would be very helpful to beginners. In fact, any information or tips that you can share on how to successfully complete a project using your free baby hat crochet patterns will be greatly appreciated by our visitors.
