Crochet Newborn Knot Hat Pattern

If you didn’t see the news on my Facebook page, we welcomed our sweet baby girl into the world this past weekend! She is perfect in every way and we are enjoying all the newborn baby snuggles. Of course I had to bring a crocheted hat for her to wear while in the hospital so I came up with this knot hat pattern and added a little crochet heart as an embellishment.  At birth she weighed 8lbs 1oz and is 21 inches long with a 14″ head circumference. This newborn hat just barely fit her without much room to spare. So use a larger hook if you think your newborn will be larger than her stats.

– Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in pink.
– Size H Crochet Hook (or larger)
– Stitch marker
-Tapestry Needle

Magic Ring Tutorial
SC = Single Crochet

Newborn Knot Hat Pattern:
Magic ring, chain 1, make 3 SC in ring, continue to SC in rounds
Round 2: Make 2 SC in each stitch around (6 SC)
Round 3-16: SC in each stitch around (6 SC)
Round 17: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next two stitches, repeat around (8 SC)
Round 18-20: SC in each stitch around (8 SC)
Round 21: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next three stitches, repeat around (10 SC)
Round 22-24: SC in each stitch around (10 SC)
You will now join your rounds.
Round 25: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (10 SC)
Round 26: 2 SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (20 SC)
Round 27: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (20 SC)

Round 30: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 2 stitches, join, chain 1 (40 SC)
Round 31-43: SC in each stitch around (40 SC)
Optional: slip stitch in each stitch around.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Tie knot in the top of the hat.

Crocheted Heart:
I followed THIS pattern by Skip To My Lou but stopped after Round 1. Leave a long tail and sew heart onto front of hat with tapestry needle.

I love all your hat patterns and have used them over and over again. I always send everyone to your website when I post the photos on my blog. Thanks so much for writing such good patterns and offering them for free. :) Hugs, Tamara

Congratulations!! She is adorable and I wanted to write earlier to tell you, but your patterns are by far the best and easiest I've ever made.
And GOD BLESS YOU for teaching me the Magic Ring…my hats are forever changed. :)

I'm working on this pattern right now, and think I can help with your confusion. Round 21 you'll do the 2sc in first stitch, sc in next 3 stitches, repeat around (10sc). Then for rounds 22-24 you'll sc in each stitch (10sc). It's basically the same directions as round 17, and then 18-20 but doing 10sc instead of 8sc.

I did the same thing as Samantha, and it turned out great! I'm wondering how to make the heart appliqué and NOT have a huge hole in the center. Any suggestions??

I start all my hats the same way that the heart is started, and I make sure that I pull the tail as tight as possible to close that hole. I also weave my tail in the the same direction I had to pull to close the hole. So instead of weaving the tail in the stitches that are in front of where it comes out of(over the slip knot), I weave it into the stitches behind where it came out of…. I hope that makes sense.

Sorry for the mistake! Yes, Samantha is correct and I believe I have it fixed now. That's what I get for writing down the pattern while still in the hospital. And to create the heart appliqué without the hole, start with a magic ring and pull tight to close.

So gorgeous your beautiful little girl with a gorgeous warm hat. Congratulations!
With this pattern you make a lot of other mums also happy. Thanks!

Love, Margaret

She is absolutely adorable – a real little girl (bet you are going to have tons of fun dressing her up in all the lovely things you make). Enjoy every minute – the hat is quite adorable too by the way!

Congratulations Sarah with your beautiful baby-girl!She looks so sweet and adorable…enjoy!They're growen up before you know,ha,ha….The little hat is so cute either I'm gonna make one for an little baby-girl who will be born in about 16 weeks,love this one with the knot!

greats from Holland!

Your patterns are so easy to follow, I just wanted to let you know. I made two of of these adorable hats for a friend who's havign a baby sometime in the next four weeks. They turned out super adorable (just like your adorable little girl :) ) THank you so much for your free patterns. I'm using them like crazy for friends.


Thanks so much for the pattern. I am trying to make this hat now. In the beginning row after making the magic ring and 3 sc do we join the round? How do we make two sc in each stitch unless we turn the work or join the round?

Thank you for all the wonderful patterns! I made the owl hat and am now trying to make this beautiful knot hat for my niece. I'm also having a hard time with the instructions. I'm new to the magic ring and I think I got the hang of it, but I'm so confused where it says don't join. I've tried looking up tutorials, but I still can't figure it out.

(sorry if this posted twice) I plan to give these as gifts to all the babies that are born into my husbands military company. I was wondering, is there a way to print this on one page? I was able to delete some of the images to cut down on size, but I would like to be able to keep one photo. Is there a way to shrink the photos? TIA
