Lacy Stitch Newborn Hat, Free Crochet Pattern



For this newborn hat I used the same lacy stitch as for the Lacy Baby Blanket. So if you’ve made that blanket, you can now crochet a matching baby hat!

This is a newborn size baby hat, but I'll try to work out the pattern for a bigger size too. 




This pattern is my original design. It cannot be posted on other sites or distributed in any other form. If you would like to share this pattern, you can post ONE image on your site with the link to my original post. You can use this pattern to make items for personal use or for sale. If you sell finished items from this pattern, you must give design credit to Lacy Crochet blog (lacycrochet.blogspot.com). Please, respect my work. Thank you!

The hat measures 13 inches in circumference and 5 inches in hight. 

I used Snuggly Wuggly yarn by Loops and Threads and size E (3.5mm) hook.

Gauge: 3 first rounds = 3.5 inches. If you gauge is slightly bigger, that’s not a problem; you will get a baby hat size 0-3 months. However, if your gauge is slightly smaller, you’ll get a baby hat size preemie. 

In this pattern V-st is (dc, ch 1, dc) all in same space.
Also, when I refer to “shell”, I mean 3 dc in same space.



Ch 5, join with sl st into ring.


Round 1: Ch 4, *dc in ring, ch 1* 11 times. Join with sl st into 3rd ch of beginning ch-4.



Round 2: Sl st into next ch-1 space, ch 4, dc in same ch-1 space, V-st in each ch-1 space around. Join with sl st into 3rd ch of beginning ch-4.



Round 3:  Sl st into next ch-1 space, ch 4, dc in same ch-1 space, V-st into next space between two V-st of previous round, *V-st into next 2 V-st, V-st into next space between two V-st of previous round* 5 times, V-st into next V-st. Join with sl st into 3rd ch of beginning ch-4.



Round 4: Sl st into next ch-1 space, ch 4, dc in same ch-1 space, V-st into each V-st around. Join with sl st into 3rd ch of beginning ch-4.



Round 5: Ch 3, 2 dc in same space, *skip 4 spaces, 3 dc in next space, ch 3, skip 2 spaces, sc in next sp, ch 3, skip 2 spaces, 3 dc in next space* around, ending with ch 3. Join with sl st to 3rd ch of beg ch-3.



Round 6: Ch 3, 2 dc in same space, *skip 4 dc, 3 dc in next dc, ch 3, sc in next sc, ch 3, 3 dc in next dc* around, ending with ch 3. Join with sl st to 3rd ch of beg ch-3.



Round 7: Same as Round 6.



Round 8: Ch 3, 2 dc in same space, *ch 3, sc in space between next 2nd and 3rd dc (it’s the space between two shells), ch 3, skip next 2 dc, 3 dc in next dc, 3 dc in next dc*  around, ending with 3 dc in next dc. Join with sl st to 3rd ch of beg ch-3.



Round 9: Sl st to last dc of shell, ch 3, 2 dc in same space, *ch 3, sc in next sc, ch 3, 3 dc in next dc, skip next 4 dc, 3 dc in next dc* around, ending with 3 dc in next dc. Join with sl st to 3rd ch of beg ch-3.



Round 10: Same as Round 9.



Round 11: sl st to last dc of shell, ch 3, 2 dc in same space, *3 dc in next dc, ch 3, sc in space between next 2nd and 3rd dc (it’s the space between two shells), ch 3, skip next 2 dc, 3 dc in next dc* around, ending with ch 3. Join with sl st to 3rd ch of beg ch-3.
