Baby Turban Hat with a Bow


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.


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.

    • Is this hat the same pattern as pink above. It appears different. I’m working on this pattern and it is not coming out the size I was hoping for.

  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. Very nice. Can you translate in French. I want to do this turban. Thank you very much.

  6. 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?

    • I used Caron super soft and a 4mm hook and it’s probably going to fit my 2 year old granddaughter this winter, lol. Most of the newborn beanies I make with a 4mm hook, in the round, I start my repeated rounds at around 40 stitches. Try that. I’m sure the hat will come out much smaller.
      I do 12 initially, Inc by 2 in each st around (24), Inc by 1 in first st, 2 in the next (36) Inc by 8st followed by 2 in the next st (40)
      Begin repeating rounds from here.

      • Thank you… everyone has different tension and every yarn has varying size even if it’s all listed the same… I know I tend to crochet a bit tight from what I’ve been told.

      • Hi Sherry….wondering what you mean by the direction “Begin repeating round from here”. I want to make sure. Also, do you still do a chain 2 at the beginning of each row?

  7. 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.

  8. 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!!

  9. Hello, thank you for sharing your lovely pattern with us.
    I am beinger and would like to crochet this lovely hat for myself.
    Pleased you let me know whether I can or not. If I can then please
    me know how? Many thanks
    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

  10. How would you adjust this pattern for 9-12 months? I made it for my niece when she was born and they loved it so much they want another!!

  11. The picture of the pink turban with bow looks like the bow is doubled. That seems to look better than the flat bow, which looks like the ends turn up. Shall I crochet double length? (52 chains)?
    I’m quite the beginner, so fearful!

  12. This turban is HUGE!!! Definitely not for a newborn. I used the 40 stitch max as described in earlier comment and it now appears to be the appropriate newborn size.

  13. My turban looks way taller than the pic. Repeat rows, are they supposed eight rows or the whole hat eight rows?
