Monkey & Mouse Hats for Baby

I think it’s official, I have a serious obsession with animal hats!!!  LOL no really, it just seems that now since I have figured out how to make them I see all these other ideas that I for one reason or another was not able to find when I was looking for the info.

These hats along with the Sock Monkey Hat and the Owl Hat are top candidates for my Fav’s.  These are other people’s patterns that I love, these are not my patterns.

 


Monkey Crochet Hat Pattern for Babies: This is a single crochet hat for a 6-12 month baby (but remember, it’s easy to make different sizes).  I love how she has done the ears so they curl in.

Minnie Mouse Hat by CrochetDreamz—  check out how she did the ears.  I have spent so much time trying to figure out how to make semi circles for bear ears so they would lay flatter when sewn to the hat.  Her method is perfect.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 Over the weekend I crocheted a hat  using the Minnie Mouse Inspired Hat pattern by Cristina Barnes.  There is a helpful video showing how to you sew embellishments, like round ears, onto an animal hat and avoid the ears flopping. 


Kitty Cat Baby Hat – Crochet

FREE Kitty Crochet Hat Pattern

Newborn & 0-3 Months
~updated November 1, 2014

kittyhat4wm

You will need:

  • 5 mm (size H)crochet hook
  • Worsted weight yarn in Ivory (about 75 yards)
  • Worsted weight yarn in Pink (less than 50 yards)
  • Small amount of yarn in black, white and red.
  • Yarn needle
  • Ruler or tape measure
  • Scissors
  • Sewing thread and sewing needle

Gauge:  At the end of round 7: Your circle should measure 4” across. Adjust your hook size as needed.

For the hat itself you will use my single crochet baby hat pattern    There is a download link at the end of this pattern that includes the full hat and kitty cat hat pattern.

For the cat’s eyes, nose, and ears use your 5 mm crochet hook

Kitty’s Nose
Ch4
In 2nd ch from hook make 2 TC, slip stitch in next, 2 TC in next.

Fasten off and leave a long tail. Use yarn needle to stitch up to middle of nose and wrap yarn 3 or more times around the center.

Use your tails to sew the nose to the hat. Weave your ends in neatly and hide them behind the nose.

Kitty’s  mouth-
With a strand of red yarn 12” or so, either embroider a small satin stitch mouth shape OR you can tie a knot in the center of the strand, tie another knot directly over that know. Use the tails to sew this to the hat. Weave the tails in well behind the nose making sure they are secured and fasten off.

Kitty’s Eyes
With black yarn, and a long tail, ch2, make sc into 1st ch made. Fasten off and again leave a long tail for sewing and embroidering.

With a strand of white yarn about 6” long and your yarn needle work a single embroidery stitch along the inside of one of the sc’s. Repeat this on the other eye. Fasten your yarn on the wrong side of the eye, weave in the ends so they are hidden and secure.

Sew eyes onto hat using your tails of black yarn. When the eye is secured make two eyelashes on each the top and the bottom of the eye by running a short embroidery stitch diagonally away from your eye. Without pulling too tightly weave your tails in behind the eye so they are hidden and fasten off.

Kitty’s Whiskers
Use a 6” strand of yarn and your yarn needle to make a stitch of either side of the nose with the tails sticking out if the right side of the work. Tie them in a double knot and then a 2nd double knot making sure they are not so tight as to pucker your hat. Trim them to the desired length and then use the point of your yarn needle to separate the strands.

To keep the knots from coming undone (it seems people are drawn to touching the whiskers which doesn’t help them stay tied) I like to run black sewing thread thru the knots a few times. TIP: make sure to tie off and hide the knot from your sewing thread behind the nose.

Cat Ears
Make 2- I made one in pink and one in ivory

With a long tail, chain 5

Rows 1 and 2: Sc 4, ch1, turn (4)

Now we begin decreasing each row to give the ears a triangular shape. This can be done several ways A) By sc2tog at either end of the rows B) by skipping the first sc of each row or C)by skipping the first sc in each row. In this pattern we will use sc2tog but of course you can use any method you are familiar with or prefer.

Row 3: sc2 tog, sc ea of nxt 2, ch1, turn (3)

Row 4: sc2 tog, sc the nxt, ch1, turn (2)

Row 5: sc2 tog, (1)

Fasten off leaving a long tail of 12” or more

Row 6: Attach your contrasting color, ch 1 and sc around the ear making 3 sc in the top of the ear to create a point. Again leave long tails.

With your yarn needle, work the strands of pink into the inside of the hat to get those out of the way. With your MC (Ivory) strands sew the ears to the top of the hat making sure to sew both in both the front and the back of the ear.

Work strands to inside the hat and weave them in.
TIP: When I have a project with this many ends to weave in I like to utilize as many as I can in an effort to keeping the inside of the hat looking as clean as possible. In the photo I have taken the tails from the ears and the tail from the very beginning of the hat and [after weaving them in securely] used the yarn needle to bring them back thru the inside of the first round. To do this just bring them all through, trim to the desired length and use the tip of the yarn needle to slightly separate the strands.

Braided Ties


For the braids in the photos I wrapped both the ivory and pink yarn around the a composition notebook (9.75” tall) 12 times (12 of each color) per earflap.


IMG_6613


Using a crochet hook pull them thru the hole made in the bottom of the earflap by inserting crochet hook from the inside to outside.

Pull ends thru the loop made and gently pull until they are wrapped over the end of the ear flap. See photos below.

Arrange the yarn into three sections and braid. Fasten the braids by tying yarn around them. With a strand of yarn 24” long wrap the tied off spot.

Use your yarn needle to work the two tails under the wrap (see photo)
braids6-pull-tails-under-wrap

Trim your ends to even them up.

Pat yourself on the back–you just made a kitty hat!

Don’t forget to take a picture and post it to your Ravelry projects or the Craftsy project page.

Crochet Earflap Hats for 6lb-7lb babies

Free Crochet Pattern for Newborn Sized Hat in Double Crochet.

Updated November 2, 2014  Newborn babies have a head size of 12 1/2″ to 14″ and sometimes it can be hard to find hat patterns small enough for our brand new little tiny humans.

To make a newborn hat –like a hospital sized hat- you should be alright to plan on it being 12.5″ circumference because it is going to stretch another 1 to 1.5″ until baby outgrows it at 10 days old 😉

If you are crocheting and making a top down hat in the round this just means you will continue to make increases until your circle measures 4″ (10cm) in diameter which will give you a circumference of 12.5″.   Most likely if you are reading this you are new to crochet and that part just looked a little confusing….it’s not.  It’s so easy.  Just follow me below and you will see for yourself.

You are going to need

-some heavy worsted weight/aran yarn.  Like Red Heart With Love  or Caron One Pound.  I am demonstrating below with Crafter’s Secret from Hobby Lobby.

– a size I crochet hook (5.5 mm)

– a ruler or tape measure

– stitch marker or a piece of scrap yarn to make a row marker

Gauge- We aren’t going to worry about gauge right now, we are going to focus on getting the width around that we need and I will show you how.

Ready?

Here’s the Pattern with Photos so I guess it’s kind of a tutorial.

Round 1)  Make a magic circle (or chain 2 and in the first ch) Make 12 DC in the loop.  Do not join.  PM (place marker) on the last stitch you made. Pull tail snug but not to tight yet, you need to be able to clearly see all of your stitches but they need to be close enough that you can easily move to round 2.

Round One crochet hat
End of round 1. You have 12 stitches

 

Round 2)  Make 2 double crochets in each stitch around.  You can now pull that tail enough that it closes the hole in the top of your hat.  Remember to mark your last stitch so you will know when to stop your next round.  (24 DC)

Round two of hat crochet pattern
End of round 2. You have 24 stitches

Round 3) Make  * 1 double crochet in the next stitch, make 2 double crochets in the next stitch.*     Now you will repeat that all the way around.  You will repeat exactly what is between the *’s  and when you make your last stitch PM. (36 DC)

Now get your ruler and measure right across the center of your circle.  If it measures 4″ you are ready to move on.
If it isn’t large enough then you will need a larger hook.  If it’s too big you need to start over with a smaller hook. (When I started crocheting my stitches were so tight I had to use a K–6.5 mm hook to get this size.)

End of round 3- you have 36 stitches.  Measure across.  For a newborn hat you need a 4" circle
End of round 3- you have 36 stitches. Measure across. For a newborn hat you need a 4″ circle

Since your circle is the circumference we need you will not quit making increases.  You will be making a double crochet in each stitch around the hat for another 4 rounds.  You will still need to move your marker and mark the last stitch of each round so that you know where to stop and fasten off.

Rounds 4, 5, 6, 7) Double crochet in each stitch around.  Move marker as you finish each round.   At the end of round 7 my work is just over 4″ long.  Measure yours and make another row or rows if needed then catch up with me below.
DO NOT CUT YOUR YARN because we are going to use it to make the first ear flap.

At the end of row 7 work measures just over 4" long
At the end of row 7 work measures just over 4″ long

 

Ear Flaps Pattern

To add earflaps to your hat follow these instructions.  The ear flaps are worked in rows back and forth.

Row 1)  Dc 8 stitches beyond your maker, Ch 3 and turn (8 dc)

Row 2)  Dc  in the next st and each  of the nxt 6 across  Turn (7 dc + ch3 = 8 dc)

Row 3)  Do not chain. Starting with the nxt st, DC each across (7 DC)  Turn

Row 4)   Do not chain. Starting with the nxt st, DC each across.  Turn  (6 DC)

Row 5) Do not chain. Starting with the nxt st, DC each across (5 DC) Turn

Row 6) Do not chain. Starting with the nxt st, DC each across (4 DC) Turn

Row 7) Do not chain. Starting with the nxt st, DC each across (3 DC)

Row 8) Do not chain. Starting with the nxt st, DC each across (2 DC) Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for weaving in and fasten.

The first earflap has been added to the hat
The first earflap has been added to the hat

 

Now flip your hat over so you have the top of the hat nearest you and the earflap you just made on the righthand side.  Like the picture below.

Turn hat upside down and count stitches across the front to add second earflap
Turn hat upside down and count stitches across the front to add second earflap

Now count 12 stitches to the left of where your existing earflap starts.  Join your yarn in the stitch to the left of the 13th.

Row 1)  ch 3, and DC in the same stitch.  DC in the next 7 st across.

Now follow rows 2-8 of the earflap directions.

When you are done with the 2nd earflap don’t cut the yarn just yet.  Fold the hat in half, line up the earflaps and double check to make sure you go them the same length.  When you are good to go fasten off, cut yarn and weave in your ends.

Your hat has earflaps now!  Now we just need to add a border.
Your hat has earflaps now! Now we just need to add a border.

You now have a newborn sized snow boarders hat with earflaps!

Pattern  Stitches for Newborn are show with 0-3 Mos in [brackets]

Round 1– Using a magic circle DC 10 [11] into loop.  Join and tighten 10[11]
If you don’t know how to magic circle you can chain 2 and make the 10 dc into the 2nd ch from the hook.

Round 2– ch3.  *2 dc in next st*  repeat from * around and join –20 dc[ 22]

Round 3– ch3 *dc in next, 2 dc in next* repeat from * around and join –30dc [33]

Round 9 0-3 Months only, ch 3, dc in each st around, join [44 dc]

If you will be adding earflaps do not cut your yarn.
If you will not be adding ear flaps–weave in ends and you’re done!

Add the Ear Flaps– Both Newborn and 0-3 months are worked the same way and with the same number of stitches.

With yarn still attached:

  1. ch1, sc in the same and in the next 9 stitches. (10 sc)
  2. ch1, turn.  SC across the next 10 stitches
  3. ch1, turn.  sc2tog, sc across (9 sc)

  9. ch1, turn, sc2tog, sc across (3 sc)
  10. ch1, turn, sc2tog, sc across (2 sc)
  11. ch1, turn, sc2tog, sc across (1 sc)

Determine which you would like to be the back of the hat, count  7 [9] stitches from where your earflap ends and attach yarn in next stitch.  Repeat steps 1-11 of the earflap pattern.

Choose your contrast yarn and single crochet around the outside of the hat.   If I know I will be adding braids or ties I like to start crocheting my trim in the point of one of the ear flaps.  See the pic

single-crochet-around-hat

If you will be adding ties or tassles to the hat work 3 sc into the point of each ear flap.  Info about tassels at the end of this pattern.  You don’t want to add those yet, you have sewing to do 😉

Puppy Dog Ears – floppy
Leaving a tail of 12” ch 7-
1- dc in 4th ch from hook and all ch across (4)
2- ch2, turn, dc all (4), ch 2 and turn
3- Increase by making 2 dc in 1st stitch, dc across and 2
dc in last stitch (6) ch 2 and turn
4-5 6 7 dc all, ch 2, turn (6)
8- dc2tog, dc 2, dc2tog, ch2, turn
9- dc all (4) do not turn
10-  ch1, sc in side of ear and sc around ear.  When you get back up to the top row make 3 sc’s in top corner.  At last stitch make 2 sc’s in same sp you made your ch1.  This will make the corners at the tops of the ears square and easier to sew to the hat.

Repeat for 2nd ear.

Puppy Dog Eyes
(Make 2) If you want crocheted eyes as in the first photo below this is how the can be made.
Ch 2
Row 1- 6 hdc in last chain from hook 6
Row 2- 2 hdc in each sc. Slip stitch to join. (12)

Alternatively you can use buttons for the eyes, or you can use beads.  If you make the eyes in a dark color you can add a little highlight by simply embroidering with two stitches of white yarn.  SEE THE EXAMPLES OF HOW I HAVE MADE EYES ON OTHER HATS BELOW.

Puppy Dog Eye Patch
(optional- shown as blue in photo)
With eye patch color, ch 2 and follow instructions for
eyes except add an additional row as follows
Ch 2
Row 1– 6 hdc in last chain from hook 6, do not turn, place marker in last stitch
Row 2– 2 hdc in each sc do not turn, place marker in last stitch. (12)

Row 3– *1hdc in the next st, 2 hdc in the next* rpt from *  around do not turn, place marker in last stitch(18)

Row 4– *1hdc in each of the next st, 2 hdc in the next* rpt from *  around (24)

Fasten off

Puppy Dog Nose-
Ch 2
Row 1: 6 sc in last chain from hook
Row 2: 2 sc in each sc. (12)
Rows 3 &4: sc in each sc around (12)

Black Tri-angle on nose:
Keeping a long tail, Ch 5, dc in 4th ch from hook, sc in remaining stitch.  Fasten off.  Sew to completed nose, use tails to embroider a doggie smile.

 

Assemble the pieces and sew them to your hat.  Make sure to put a cotton ball, a little bit of polyfill or some yarn inside the nose before attaching it all the way.

 

Add tassels or braids if you wish.

attach-tassels-to-earflaps
The tassels were made with per ear: 3 strands white, 3 strands gray, 3 strands blue. They were cut approximately 12″ long

Easy Tassels– Cut 12″ sections of the yarn you are using for tassles.  I like to use 9 or 12 strands per ear flap.  Pull them thru the ends of the flaps where you made 3 single crochets.  Braid them or twist them, fasten with a piece of yarn and repeat for the 2nd ear flap.

 

Enjoy your hat and pat yourself on the back!!

Remember to post a picture of your hat at the Ravelry pattern page.

Crochet Earflap Hat Pattern- 0-3 months

Double Crochet Snow Boarder Hat Pattern
0-3 Months


I wanted to make a puppy dog hat with earflaps for a new baby but most of the patterns I found either made 15″ hats…which is 2 inches too big for newborn babies [who have  13″-14″ heads] or the patterns called for a small crochet hook, [which I don’t have yet] OR the patterns were something like 0-6 months..there is a huge difference between a 10 day old baby and a 6 month old!!

So I just decided to work up my own patterns.  In the process I also came up with this pattern for 0-3 months which will fit a head size up to about 14.5″ around.

Baby Ski Hat Pattern with Double Crochet Ear Flaps


Gauge= 6 stitches = 2″

This is crocheted in the round and in a spiral meaning you do not join and chain and you do not turn.   To keep track of your rounds you should place a marker.

You will need
Worsted weight yarn
scrap yarn in contrasting colors if you are adding trim, eyes, nose, or ears
Size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook
Smaller crochet hook or yarn needle to weave in ends.


To double crochet the body of your hat

Round 1)  Chain 2 and double crochet 10 times into 2nd chain from hook or if you are using magic circle make 10 dc in loop.

Round 2)  Make 2 dc’s in each stitch. Place marker on last stitch
made. You should have 20 stitches

Round 3)   *2 dc in next stitch, 1 dc in next stitch* repeat
around (30 stitches total)

Round 4)   *2 dc in next stitch, 1 dc in next 2 stitches* repeat
around (40 stitches total)

**check your sizing.  If your circle measures 4.5″ across then you are right on track to make a 0-3 month size hat that will fit a head up to about 14.5″ around.  If your circle is too small switch to a smaller hook (I used to crochet very tightly and had to use a K (6.5 mm) hook to achieve this).  If your circle is too large use a smaller hook here.  (Ally crochets very loose and would probably need a tiny F hook here).

Rounds 5-8– dc in each stitch around hat making sure to
move marker with each completed row.

If you will be attaching earflaps crochet until hat measures 4“- 4.25″
tall and do NOT cut yarn. Then proceed with earflaps.

If you will not be attaching earflaps crochet until hat is 5“
tall, cut yarn, fasten and weave in end.

EARFLAPS PATTERN

This pattern makes double crochet earflaps which are rounded at the bottom.  To make ear covers in single crochet you can use the earflap portion of the directions for  my Puppy Dog animal Hat pattern

These are worked in rows back and forth. Updated November 2, 2014

Row 1)  Dc 8 stitches beyond your maker, Ch 3 and turn (8 dc)

Row 2)  Dc  in the next st and each  of the nxt 6 across  Turn (7 dc + ch3 = 8 dc)

Row 7) Do not chain. Starting with the nxt st, DC each across (3 DC)

Row 8) Do not chain. Starting with the nxt st, DC each across (2 DC) Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for weaving in and fasten.

Now flip your hat over so you have the top of the hat nearest you and the earflap you just made on the righthand side.  Like the picture.

IMG_6666

Now count 13 stitches to the left of where your existing earflap starts.  Join your yarn in the stitch to the left of the 14th.

Row 1)  ch 3, and DC in the same stitch.  DC in the next 7 st across.

Now follow rows 2-8 of the earflap directions.

When you are done with the 2nd earflap don’t cut the yarn just yet.  Fold the hat in half, line up the earflaps and double check to make sure you go them the same length.  When you are good to go fasten off, cut yarn and weave in your ends.

 

Trim- with contrast yarn attach with slip stitch behind right
ear. Ch 1, and sc around entire hat and earflaps.  Make sure when you are single crocheting along the sides of the earflaps that you make 2 sc in each dc row.   Cut yarn and
weave in loose ends.

Leave the earflaps as is or add braids,  decorate with a chain and pom poms.

Froggy Hat

Baby’s Crochet Frog Hat

This tickled me, apparently Ally has an acquaintance with a young lady who has a baby about Bray’s age. The friend saw his little Puppy Dog Hat that I made last week and asked if ‘they’ made frog hats.

So Ally dials me up and says “I have a hat order for you”. And then proceeds to tell me what colors out of my stash (yeah she goes through it enough to know what is in there) would work beautifully.
Since I had taken notes when I made Brady’s hat a couple hours later I was looking at a cute little frog hat. I used my basic concept for the doggy eyes for the frog eyes but made them one round larger.

The pattern for this hat was inspired by Lion Brand’s Tweed Hat pattern @ http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0026AD.html?noImages= except with even increases so the top wasn’t so pointy and I had to add a few extra rounds.

The yarn used is just Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in ‘Spring Green’ .  I have since written my own pattern that is flatter on the top than this hat,  is written for worsted weight instead of bulky and uses a 5 mm crochet hook (size H).
