Simple Baby Beanie with Scalloped Edging, Free Crochet Pattern

It was my mom who taught me to crochet when I was a little girl. As a child it was one of my favorite pastimes. I made crocheted clothes for all of my dolls and teddy bears.

The hat bellow is similar to the ones I made for my dolls long time ago. It is made using double crochets and is super easy.

This pattern is my original design and it cannot be redistributed. However, you have the permission to sell finished items made from this pattern.

More baby hat patterns from my shop:


  1. Very cute! Thanks for the pattern! I think I might try this for some of my hats I make for the newborns at the hospital. =)

  2. Really cute! I forwarded it to my mom who makes baby items for a Crisis Pregnancy Center. I think she will really like it. :0)

  3. Where do I switch colors at round 11?

  4. In the relatively cold and winter season, people will need to cover their head, face, and ears with a gentle and thin garment. private label beanies
