Our babies are so precious and have very sensitive skin. Help protect your baby from the elements with this adorable sun hat crochet pattern.
With this free pattern, for a size 6-9 month sun hat, I really wanted to show how different the finished product can be. Thank you everyone who tested out my pattern and to Jerri Sparks Photography for taking this beautiful photo. Also, check out the 12-18 month size , toddler size, child, and adult sizes.

I used 7 strands of yarn and weaved them in and out every 2 stitches in row 10. Make sure you leave a little slack so the hat can stretch over the child's head.
Just a question. I’m just learning to crochet and still learning to read patterns (only been doing this about a month) But on number 11. should there be a ch 2 in the beginning?
Also, This is the first pattern i have read that I actually UNDERSTAND!! I can fully visualize what i”m supposed to be doing and will be making this hat soon 🙂
Ha! Yes, good call.
I’m glad you are able to follow it. Finding one easy to read pattern makes a world of difference and makes it easier to read the harder ones after. Would love to see a photo of your work after its finished 🙂
Yes it says that in round 11. If you read again you will see it!
im in love with this hat so cute thank you for the pattern .. my question is do you have the pattern for other sizes??
Ty! And yes, but not all sizes, not yet 😉 I have the 12-18 month, Toddler, Child, and adult sizes also. There are links to those sizes right below the first picture on this post. 🙂
perfect ill wait patiently for the smaller sizes 🙂 my little one is a peanut and her head is really small for a one year old ….
i really want this pattern! However, it wont print
Oh I am sorry. Have you tried hitting Ctrl P?
any suggestions for how to make a 9-12 month sized hat?
I have a 9-18 month size for this hat 😀 https://stitch11.memberhost.io/free-crochet-sun-hat-patterns/
hi i love this pattern and i am just wondering so long as i qoute who this pattern belongs to may i sell what i make x
yes you may do whatever you want with the finished product! I love seeing my free patterns being used to help others! I wish you the best of luck with you crochet business. Thanks for being willing to link my patterns too!! feel free to give me links to your finished work. I do not sell what I make but I know many people always asking for things made from my patterns.
This hat is so cute , I was looking for something like this! I like it so much, I’m gonna make one for my little niece.Thank you so much!
I have attempted your wonderful pattern. I have followed it exact every stitch is exactly the same but my brim is not wavy its near straight out. what could i be doing wrong? I have undone it twice now and followed the pattern again and same outcome.
Maybe try doing 2 HDC in every 4th stitch of round 13 instead of every 5th?
Jammer dat dit patroon van het leuke hoedje niet in het Nederlands is. Ik ben zo slecht in engels. Ik verheug me op een Nederlands patroon. Ik krijg in Oktober zelf een baby, altijd leuk om zo’n hoedje te haken. 🙂
Im so sorry! Ik wou dat ik wist nederlands anders dan met behulp van Google Translate. Ik zou bieden om te proberen om het te gebruiken om mijn patroon te vertalen maar ik zou flauw idee of het daadwerkelijk correct of niet vertaalt. Congrats op het nieuwe baby! – Stitch 11

Okay some how this is not working for me. When I get to row 11 I still have 50 count. In row 11 you do hdc in multiples of 3 (2 in the first and then 1 in the next two) 50 does not divide into 50 evenly. I end up doing 16 repeats and then have two stitches left.
I suspect I am not reading this right but now sure how. Thanks!
Yes. You are correct. Just Single Crochet into those last twp stitches.
Barb boran says
Your welcome 🙂 I wanna see it when its finished!
I have waves galore after row # 6. What am i doing wrong ?
Are you increasing your stitches somehow?
Hi there! I love this pattern and have made several now. What would I need to do in order to make it for 0-3 months?
I don’t believe I have a pattern for 0-3 months, but if you take a basic beanie pattern in that size.. like the Stitch11 “Welcome Home Beanie” you could always add the brim at the desired length the same way you added this brim.
I made this hat for my 6 week old daughter using Red Heart baby yarn and a smaller hook. It’s amazing how a small difference in the hook can make a big difference in the size of the finished product.
Thank you for this pattern, it is beautiful.
Are the terms for this pattern, UK or USA please? Why can’t the stitch names just be universal it would make life so much easier. ♥

Wonderful pattern! Amazing and easy to read!
Super easy pattern to follow!! The only downside about it is it’s to small for my 6 month old head! I’m not sure if I did something wrong but is so snug on her head.
