Newborn Cloche hat

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


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


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 Newborn Cloche Hat pattern 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 Hobby Lobby “Baby Bee Sweet Delight Yarn” 3-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.

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.  You can find the link to this flower pattern below.

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 Newborn Cloche 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!  If you like this little pattern for Newborn Cloche Hat then check out my other pattern for a colorful Clochet Hat pattern

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.

    Dear Chrissy,
    Thank you so much for your hat patterns. I made both the Dunbar and the Cloche. I used white cotton for the Sunhat and made various color flowers with pins so they could be changed to match different outfits. The Cloche I just love, the new mother to be loved pink and grey but I couldn’t find a pattern that wouldn’t look to plush in grey. This was perfect! Wth a pink ribbon it looks beautiful. Again, thank you my crochet sister!
