When I hear the joyous news from friends and family that a new baby is on the way, the first thing I always do is reach for my crochet hook and a free baby crochet pattern. My favorite gift to give is a fun crochet baby hat, not only are crochet baby hat patterns plentiful, but they are also very easy projects. Small and fun, just like a new baby! Baby needs a cute way to keep that precious head warm. So, a fun character-inspired topper will only add to the plethora of “Awwwwwwwwwwww”s that the new mommy hears all day.
Whether you hook up an absolutely adorable Cookie Monster Baby Hat for a new baby boy, or a Rapunzel Inspired Crochet Hat for a little girl — you’ll have a blast working on it. Sometimes when I make these silly creations, I will even watch the shows or movies that inspired them. Somehow they seem to come out with so much more personality!
Crochet baby hats are perfect projects to keep in your “on the go” tote bag because they are small and portable. And let’s face it, you know there are always babies that need a sweet hat to wear. For most of these patterns, all you need to know is how to crochet the single crochet, double crochet or half double crochet — they really are that simple. There’s nothing more adorable than a baby with a fuzzy cartoon character on their heads, and your baby has never looked cuter in photographs than when wearing one of these free baby hat patterns.
