Baby Turban Hat with a Bow

IMG_20140718_171929_650

I had a request for this style hat for a baby… I found a precious few free patterns and none for the light weight yarn. So like more often than not I found myself coming up with my own patten. I’m just proud that I actually wrote it down to share.

G hook
Baby light #3 yarn I used Bernat softee baby yarn because I had it in my stash

Ch 2, 12 dc in first chain, sl st into top of first dc

Ch 2, 2 dc in same as joining, *2 dc in each st around then sl st in first dc.

Ch 2, 2 dc in same as joining, 1 dc in next, *2 dc in next stitch, 1 dc in next* around then sl st in first dc.

Ch 2, 2 dc in same as joining, 1 dc in next 2, *2 dc in next stitch, 1 dc in next 2* around then sl st in first dc.

Ch 2, 2 dc in same as joining, 1 dc in next 3, *2 dc in next stitch, 1 dc in next 3* around then sl st in first dc.

Ch 2, 2 dc in same as joining, 1 dc in next 4, *2 dc in next stitch, 1 dc in next 4* around then sl st in first dc.

For the next 4 rows: Ch 2, dc in same as joining and then in each st around.

Ch 1, sc in joining and each st around, sl st in first sc.

Ch 1, hdc in joining in the back loop only and in each st around. Sl st in first hdc.

Repeat last two rows for total of 8 rows.

Ch 1, sc in joining and each st around, sl st in first sc.

Finish off and weave the ends.

Bow

Ch 27, dc in 3rd Ch and across. Turn

Ch 2,  dc across.

Repeat for a total of 8 rows. Finish off and leave a really long tail.

Weave the tail to the middle of the square, pinch together the middle and wrap about 10 times. Thread your yarn into a needle.

Now place it on the hat roughly where the second row of hdc is and holding tightly in place you want to insert your needle where you want the bow to be. Now bring up the yarn on the outside of the hat and pull tight creating the v. Do this another 10ish times and knot the yarn on the inside of the hat.

I then added some hidden stitches to hold the bow into place about an inch from the edges of the bow. Just my preference honestly. Just make sure to weave in the ends when you are done.

Mad Hooking!

  1. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this wonderful pattern. Made this hat for my great niece but will be making more for the charity I crochet for (chemo caps for children of Philadelphia). It is a well written, easy to follow pattern. Thanks again.

  2. My sister sent me a link to a different baby turban that she wanted me to make for her but by the time I was ready to make it, the link was gone. I found this one and I’m so glad I did. Your directions were super easy to follow and it turned out so cute! I know I tend to make really tight stitches and this was for a 9 month old so I consciously relaxed my tension and it turned out to be just a little big. Perfect for this spring. Thank you!!!

  3. I love this made for my daughter whose expecting a girl in June just love it and do easy

  4. I have made several hats from your pattern. All worked out perfectly. Thankyou for sharing it with us.

  5. I know this is an old pattern. But I tried to do this with Caron cakes yarn (size 4) which recommends an H hook. Would that be why it didn’t turn out?

  6. I crocheted this hat last night, but it is definitely not sized for a baby! At least not a human baby! I used 3 weight yarn and the G crochet hook, so I don’t know what the problem was, but I am SO disappointed since it looks like such a cute hat.

  7. I think the hat is so cute. I’m using the same yarn, same size hook, but I don’t think it’s gonna fit the newborn I’m making it for. I wonder if somehow I managed to increase the number of stitches in each row. but, I think I’ll finish it and see how it goes. If it’s too big, I’ll take someone else’s suggestion of making another hat and making your bow to attach. Thanks for the pattern! I think it’s adorable!!
