Newborn hat crochet pattern

On Saturday I posted about my gifts for baby Lili. There was two hats in my package. The other beanie is more in baby size, this one fits to her better. It is incredible, how small is a newborn's head! My niece is a small baby, she is just 6.6 lbs and 19.3" long. I put on the beanie into this little rabbit, so you can imagine her sizes :) 

I was inspired by Christine who shared a pattern for a similar beanie with worsted weight yarn. Her beanie is so adorable! I used the same pattern for the lovely flower on the side. 


1/2 skein Red Heart Baby and some scraps for the flower
3,5 mm crochet hook (E)


Width: 11"
Height: 6"


ch = chain
dc= double crochet stitch
dc2tog= double crochet two stitches together
hdc= half double crochet stitch
st= stitch


Ch 4 and join into a ring.
1. row: Ch3 (works as the first dc), make 10 dc into the ring. (10 st)
2. row: Ch 3 (count as the first dc) dc 2 into each stitch. (20 st)
3. row: Ch 3 * 1 dc , dc 2 *. (30 st)
4. row: Ch 3 * 2 dc, dc 2*. (40 st)
5. row: Ch 3 * 3 dc, dc 2*. (50 st)
6. row: Ch 3 * 4 dc, dc 2*. (60 st)
7-9. row: Ch 3 and dc around.
10. row:  Ch 3 *4 dc, dc2tog*.  (50 st)
11. row: Ch 2 and  hdc around. (total 50 st)

Happy crocheting!

  16. This is so sweet! Pink and green in my favorite color combo :)

  17. Very cute! Reading through before starting and noticed "3. row" is missing.

  18. I have tried and tried to get row 10 to work. I'm not new to crocheting, so it is frustrating that I can't get this. I did 14 dc, then did the dc2tog... did another 14 dc and then a dc2tog... another 14 dcs.. and a dc2tog... but that brings me to 45 stitches already. There is a total of 12 stitches left! I counted the previous row and it matches the 60 stitch count listed on the pattern, so I do not know what I could possibly be getting wrong here!

    1. Oh sorry, you are right! There was a type error: right --> 4dc and then dc2tog!
      Thank you for pointing me that error!

      + tip: this is a small and short hat, doesn't cover the ears, it was made as a photo prop. If you want it longer, before decreasing, crochet a few more rows.

  19. is there a link to the flower pattern? Thanks for sharing this very adorable hat!

Simple beret crochet pattern

Do you know my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? I am releasing the new version of the original pattern. It is simplified, but a little bit tighter than the sample one was. The first sample of this hat has been made with 3.5 mm hook and DK weight yarn, the number of stitches were divisible by 16. This version is simplier. I used 4.00 mm (G hook) and worsted weight yarn for a fitted looking, the number of stitches is divisible by 12. 

Here is the newly made simplier version of this beret. This time in creamy peach color:

Difficulty level: easy – for beginners too (ch, dc, basic decreasing and increasing technics) Finished measurements: fits to an average women’s head
•worsted weight yarn (approx. one smaller ball)
•crochet hook G/ 4.00 mm
•stitch marker (if you feel more comfortable with it)
•tapestry needle (to weave the ends)

Abbreviations: ch  chain dc double crochet dc2tog  decreasing two stitches with double crochet sl st 

Crochet purse for the Summer

Yippie, I have made my very first summer purse! Okay, actually it is not a new project,  a couple weeks ago you could already see some WIP pictures of it, but on the past weeks I was obsessed with sewing. That's why I deferred publication.
So time to show you one of my favourite crochet object. It is finally something for myself!! After several baby hats and simple amirgurumis for my family, I made a bag for myself... just for fun... You probably know what does it mean: when your family and friends discover 'your talent',  you don't have time to create just for yourself.

You could have already seen these squares and here where I promised, that I would make a bag from it!  So I kept my promise. It wasn't easy to turn the granny into a bag (or bag-like) shape. After several tryings with flowers and different shapes I found the simple chain loops the easiest way to turn the square into a bag.
It is not a big purse, I am sure that I won't take it for shopping, but…

Crochet Frog Applique {pattern}

A few months ago my cousin sent me a picture from a pair of baby shoes with frog applique, that she wanted for Lili. I made a quick google search for a pattern, but didn't find any. So I tried to figure out how to crochet the applique. I must confess, that the shoes are still not ready, because the first try turned out too small for Lili's feet. And now as she is learning to walk, she needs for professional shoes. So I will use these frogs later for another project. If you have any tip what should I make with them, share with me!

Materials:  - a few yards of DK weight yarn (or any weight by your choice) in green, white and red
Tools & notions: - G / 4.00 mm hook - safety eyes
- needles
