Lisha Baby Hat


This a simple crochet baby hat in preemie and new born sizes, beginning with the same basic crown pattern which I first made for the Pompom hat.  Once you have the basic crown pattern it's very easy to add your own touches and use any pattern stitch you wish.


For the Lisha hat I have used a variation on Paris stitch, to use Paris stitch for a hat you have to turn at the end of each round, for this variation I have worked the stitch in the round so I'm calling this reversed Paris stitch

Sizes
For a small Preemie work to round 3 of  Basic Crown and then pattern until hat measures 3 1/2 inches from top of crown to bottom of hat.

For larger preemie work to round 4 then pattern until hat measures 4 to 4 1/2 inches.


For Newborn work to round 5 then pattern until hat measure 6 inches

Pattern

Written in English crochet terms
Abbreviations
ch = chain
dc = double crochet (sc/us)

Round three - ch3, 1tr in next tr, *2tr in next tr, 1tr into next 2tr* around, ss to top of ch3 = 32 tr

Round four - ch3, 1tr in next 2 tr, *2tr in next tr, 1tr in next 3tr* around ss to top of ch3  = 40 tr
Round five - ch3 then 1tr in next 3tr, *2tr in next tr, 1tr in next 4 tr* around ss to top of ch3 = 48 tr

Begin pattern rounds
Foundation row
Ch 3,1tr,2ch,1dc in same st,* miss 2tr, (2tr,2ch,1dc) in next tr*, miss 2tr, (2tr,2ch,1dc) in next tr* rep from * to* until last 2 tr, ss to top of 3ch at beg of round.

  1. Hi, LInda I just love your cute little hats. I've been making doll's clothes including hats and I found that if I have the approximate count of stitches that fit around the head when finished, you know what I mean? The bit that actually fits around the face, that is a tremendous help..e.g. I have two different sized dolls( they are for a child minding centre) and one's size is 30trebles when finished, the other is 40trebles when finished, this is starting at the crown of the head of course, I found that I can start any size this way as long as I don't go over the end count of stitches.....Now, my question is, do you think you could possibly give the end count of trebles/stitches for the cute little hats/beanies you have here? Then I could do some too, knowing not to go over a certain count to keep the right size. Thank you so much for your beautiful beanies and hats. You are doing a fantastic job, making them....regards....Yaddy

  2. Sweet little hats Linda! I used to make things for babies all the time but I seemed to have ventured away from that since my kids are growing, but I love that you send your makes for babies to the Guardian Grandma's.....it's a wonderful idea that I might have to start on too!

  15. Hola Linda:
    Qué bonitos gorros para los niños, tienen que estar muy contentos. La tabla de conversión de puntos está fenomenal, muchas gracias y me gusta mucho más la cabecera así, con las fotos de las flores y los círculos de los cuadrados de la abuela.
    Un besito

  18. Hi Linda, crochet hats any size you like and so pretty too. When I made my first crochet hat I scoured the web for instruction on sizing. I soon realised that when doing the crown you continue until the circumference of your crown circle is the diameter of the head that you want to wear the hat. I found this a very good piece of sizing information which can be applied to any type of crochet hat. Also, as you've said, the crown to brim when you have finished your increases can be any stitch pattern.
    I love your little hats and aren't they a great way to use up any left over yarn from other projects.

  24. Good Morning Linda, I wish I had known you when my girls were born, as I would have loved it, if you had shown me how to crochet these adorable little baby hats. They are so lovely. You are such a kind and generous person, as you create such lovely pieces of crochet and then you pass them along and donate your beautiful work to different charities. Each and every person who receives one of your crochet works of art will be so pleased to receive it.
    Have a lovely weekend Linda.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne

  28. Don't know why I've missed this pattern before Linda, just found it via Ravelry. One hat made this evening, LILY are needing premmie hats as well as bigger sizes and it's such a great way to use up odds and ends. Love the pattern!

  29. This is so beautiful. Thanks so much for posting it. I decided at the end of last year, that I would make a donation of preemie hats that I crochet, to our local neonatal unit. I love the lacy design of this rather than a straight trcrochet hat.

    I shared the pic of the hat I'd made in my crochet group on facebook and I've been asked where I got the pattern, so I've linked them to this page.

    thanks again xx

  31. Hi Linda, I am going to start this patern in Aran and size 5 mm hook. It is to go a charity so it will fit someone hopefully. My question is do you think Aran it would be to thick?. ssPat

    1. Hi Pat, I think it will be great made in Aran yarn of course it will be much bigger but as you say it will fit someone, just remember to make it longer, measure the circumference and make the length to match it here is a chart to help http://www.eastsidefiberarts.org/topics/items/chemo.html I would love to see a picture when it's done. :) xx
