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
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 28: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, join, chain 1 (30 SC)
Round 29: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 1 (30 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.
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 think there might be a little mistake in the round 20-24 (but i think is 21-24).
How can I repeat "2 SC in first stitch, SC in next three stitches, repeat around (10 SC)" 3 times, and still have 10 sc???
🙁 I think I am lost.
Samantha Dennis says
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.
Traci N says
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??
Samantha Dennis says
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.

Michelle Light says
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.
What a beautiful baby! Thank you for posting the pattern!
she is adorable!! congratulations!
Have made a few of your patterns now, and am a big fan! Just wondering, on rows 31-43, do you still join and chain 1? Thanks
Stephanie Harrison says
Your amazing and I wish I could crochet even one thing without messing it up :'( maybe this will be it!
Jennifer Woellert says
Do you join to the first SC or CH1 when you join?
Alexandra Britt says
I love this! So cute. I shared your pattern on my blog! 🙂 http://whenlifegivesyouhandsmakehandmade.blogspot.com/
is there a visual Tutorial?
the crafty stretch mark says
(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
Thank you for sharing this pattern; I just made this for my soon to be born granddaughter! 🙂

Leigh Durrington says
Hi I am new to crocheting, I live in Australia, what size ply wool/yarn do i need and wht size hook. be greatful for any and all help 🙂 cheers Leigh.
I love this cute hat! To make a bigger sized hat, should I just add more increasing rows?
pam voisey says
hi what do u mean .. now you join in the rounds ??
after row 24 ??
Love this new born hat and dying to make it, but I’m not understanding what you mean by continue rounds or around. Could you please help me with this. Also do you have a video of you making this hat which might make it easier to do?
I’m new to reading patterns. When you say crochet in the round, are you joining your rounds and chaining to start the next, or just going continuously without joining?
