Baby Hats, 2 Ways!

Hello everyone! I’m here today with a super cute project, baby hats, yay!! It’s getting colder, and we definitely want to make sure our little ones’ heads are covered at all times. 

Do you remember those hats babies are given in the hospital when they are born? They were striped make out of a loose-knit material. Well, the ones I’m going to show you today are much more stylish and super easy to make.

Let’s take a look at these baby hats, 2 different ways:

How cute are these? They are warm too. This knit fabric is amazing and fun. 

Let’s take about this fabric collection:


These prints are apart of the Cute Cuddle Knit collection for Riley Blake Designs. They are a stretch cotton jersey knit fabric with about a 50% four-way stretch for added comfort and ease. They have 36 different knits in this collection. 

Both hats are a perfect match for this fabric collection. I have to be honest with you, I wanted to make a ton of baby clothes with this fabric to go along with these hats, but that’s a conversation for my next blog post. Let’s just say I’m still ripping out a sleeve, LOL!! Stay tuned for that. 

Now, back to the hats!

Basic Baby Hat:

This hat is so the easiest hat to make, and you can make tons of them in an hour or so. I used a free pattern from Dana at MadeEveryDay. You can find it here.

I love this pattern because of the dart that you create in the hat. It gives the hat more structure.

Knotted Baby Hat:

Now, this hat is fun. Instead of the dart, just alter the pattern by adding a tube to the top of the pattern, sew and tie the top.

These are perfect gifts to give a mom to be for the baby’s stay in the hospital. It beats the one the hospital gives you. Perfect for those first pictures. LOL!
