If you are a regular of this blog, you know I recently started my ‘Candy Free Easter’ series. The goal being to get rid of some of the abundant Easter chocolate and sub it with either homemade or store bought non sugary goodies.
I made this hat for my friends’ baby, who you can see below, happily modeling. Isn’t he a cutie?
The yarn is Bernat Baby blanket and it’s SO SO SO SOFT. It’s just a delight to work with and to put on anyone’s head. The size was 9-12 months, but baby Jameson has big brains, so it’s a bit tight. Below are my recommendations for larger sizes. You can also use a larger hook, as I used only 9 mm. This makes a tight crocheting, but I like that it creates some texturing in the hat.
Without further delay… here’s the pattern
BABY BUNNY HAT
Materials: 1 skein of Bernat baby blanket in white, 10 yards (approximately) of Caron simply soft solids in pink.
9 mm crochet hook
Body of the hat
Make a magic circle, chain 1 and make 6 sc in the circle (6sc)
Rnd 2: 2sc in each sc around, (12 sc)
Rnd 3: (2sc in the first st, sc in the next st) around, (18 sc)
Rnd 4: (2sc in the first st, sc in the next 2 st) around (24 sc)
Rnd 5: (2 sc in the first st, sc in the next 3 st) around, (30 sc)
Rnd 6: (2 sc in the first st, sc in the next 4 st) around (36 sc)
Rnd 7-8: sc in each stitch around
For larger sizes
Toddler size, which should fit 12-18 month
Rnd 7: (2 sc in the first st, sc in the next 5 st) around (42 sc)
Rnd 8: (2 sc in the first st, sc in the next 20 sc) twice (44 sc)
Using Caron simply soft pink, or a different worsted weight pink yarn
Chain 10, dc in 3rd chain from hook and in each stitch around.
Join the baby blanket yarn
Chain 2, dc in the next 6 st. Make 3 dc in the last stitch, then continue on the other side of the ear, making 1 dc in each stitch.
Make the second ear. Pinch the edges of the ear together and sew the ears to the hat. They will stand up on their own.
