Marshmallow Crochet Baby Hat with matching baby blanket!


The Marshmallow Crochet Baby Blanket was such a hit that a matching hat was needed. In response to many requests, I designed not one but TWO hats!! One has an added frill to make it a bit more “girly”. The style is a nice fluffy baby hat with lots of texture. Samples shown in photo as striped but can be made solid or any number of stripe colors to your liking.  you could even use a much larger hook for a teen to adult size!

Pattern Notes:

The Marshmallow Crochet Baby Hat Pattern is worked in rounds but work is turned after most rounds to achieve pillowed texture look. The striped version is written, for solid color continue working until desired length. The striped samples are shown in smaller size and solid is larger. Use closable stitch marker to mark outside of the hat. Brackets { } refer to larger size. To add frill, omit the last round (10) written and use directions for Frill Edge.


Textured Stitch (general instructions):

Hook a single crochet followed by 2 double crochet into the same chain (Noted: sc & 2 dc or “textured stitch”). The directions will be instructed how many, if any, chains to skip. On a shaping/decrease row some textured stitches only have 1 double crochet; follow as written on Round.


Magic Circle:

Step 1: Start with a 6” tail over the inside of your hand along the 4 fingers. The end of the tail will be at your “pinky” or 4th finger. Wrap the working yarn around the index finger one time.

Step 2: Next wrap the index finger a second time but cross over the top of the finger as an X toward the 2nd finger.

Step 3: Move the working yarn under the 2nd finger and pinch between the 3rd finger to hold tension.

Step 4: With crochet hook put hook under first loop and grab the second loop pulling it under the first.

(Special note)
