Free Pattern: Baby Hat

Bobble and Chain Baby Hat

(with matching blanket)


















You can make this adorable hat for baby with the leftover yarn from the bobble and chain blanket. 
Roll the brim for a tighter fit when baby is 3-6 months, unroll for 6-9 months (See the bear below). The stretch of the pattern leaves room to grow. Finished measurements: 6" long x 15" circumference.

Front loop single crochet (sc), back loop sc
