This is a round-up of 10 cute crochet baby hat patterns you can make for the new arrival. Choose from different styles and stitches to make something truly special.
I don’t know about you but there always seems to be new babies on the horizon. Whether it is someone in your family or friends’ circle, new babies are such a joy.
I love welcoming newborn babies with cute handmade gifts. One of the most useful presents you can make is a crochet baby hat.
There are a lot of cute and easy patterns. Because the finished hats are so small to fit tiny heads, they work up super fast too! Simply a perfect hat pattern.
You could make a whole set including booties, diaper covers, and mitts. That would make a fantastic gift for new babies and parents alike.
Secondly, crochet baby hats and whole sets are often used in newborn photography. I think this is such a cute idea. You will have a sweet photo to remember how tiny your babies once were.
I have rounded up 10 amazing crochet baby hats, beanies, and pixie hats. They are all easy beginner-friendly projects that will work up quickly.
So even if you get surprised by the news of a baby being born of your cousin or a friend you have not been in touch with a lot, you can still make them a handmade gift full of love.

Malia Newborn Beanie
The combination of techniques used in this hat will surprise you. At first glance, it looks like it is worked as a rectangle and cinched together.
However, this hat uses my special method. You begin the hat in rounds, then switch to vertical rows, and you end up with a beautiful vertical design without having to sew it shut at the end.
This method produces a nice even cinch at the top. You should definitely try it out!

Bear Hugs Baby Beanie
Every baby needs at least one bear beanie in their hat collection! And this cute crochet baby hat should definitely be one of them.

The bear ears are sewn onto the hat at the end so you could leave them off. But I think it would be a shame to do that. Just look how cute the hat is!
