Cashmere Crochet Baby Hat, Size 12 Months, Free Pattern

I have made lots of baby hats in the past year, but this one is rather special because of two reasons. First, I made it for a very special little girl, who will celebrate her first birthday this month. Second, this hat is made of fine cashmere yarn and is fabulously soft and beautiful.

I bought Jojoland 100% Cashmere Lace Weight Yarn (C-266, Lilac) from Paradise Fibers. One skein weights 50 grams and contains 440 yards of yarn. I used up about half of one skein for this baby hat.

I hope there is enough yarn left to make another slightly bigger child’s hat as the very special girl has a very special sister, whose birthday is coming up in a couple of months too.  

I gladly share my pattern below, but please do not repost it on other sites or worse yet sell it (yes, I have seen my free patterns being sold). Use this pattern to make hats for the special little girls you have in your life!

Finish off but leave a yarn tail long enough to sew the flower together and attach it to the hat. Wave in the short yarn tail on the other end of the work.

Use a tapestry needle to finish the flower. Little by little, roll the crochet piece and stitch together. For more help making this flower, see my photo tutorial.

Sew the flower on the hat.

  8. Your blog disappeared from my rss reader. The titles appear but there is no content :( I miss your posts!

    1. Yes, I changed my feeds option from full to short. I recently discovered that Feedspot had been displaying my entire posts with all the pictures and my free patterns on their site. I felt that they were taking advantage of my work. I feel it's only fair that if people want to see my articles, they should see it directly on my blog.
