When I thought of the idea I knew that I wanted stripes and I wanted navy blue, red and white with maybe a little gray or gold. I played around a little with the width of the stripes and the edge of the hat.
The blue and white hat was the first one that I made. I made up the pattern for that one as I went. It is a newborn size. It was also the first anchor that I made and I was not happy with the way it turned out. The bottom part seemed too long so I changed it slightly on the second one and was much happier with the result.
You can see the difference between the anchors in the pictures above. Because I was happier with the look of the gray anchor on the red and white hat I will share the pattern for that one. I will also share the pattern for the blue and white hat since that one I came up with myself. The red and white one is just a double crochet baby beanie changing the color every row and finished off with a single crochet border. The pattern I followed was a 3-6 month size but I must have crocheted it looser than I normally do because it turned out big, probably more of a 6-12 month size.
Anyway, on to the pattern-
Blue & White Striped Baby Hat
You will need:
worsted weight yarn in white and navy (and red for the anchor but that pattern will be separate)
H crochet hook
*I don't count my starting chain as a dc
*You will be changing colors every other row so I just carry the color up inside of the hat, you can see that in one of the pictures above
*When changing colors I always change in the last stitch of the row before. Start your stitch as you normally would but the last time you yarn over change to your new color, then pull through with the new color and slip stitch to join your round.
Round 1- starting with white make a magic ring ch 2, 11dc in ring, change to navy, ss in first dc to
join (11 dc)

finish off but leave long piece of yarn for sewing
You will have to shape it as you sew it on so that it looks the way that you want. Also there will be a couple of gaps that can be kind of filled in as it is sewn on, on the bottom where the center connects and between the two parts of the little crossbar part.
If you have any questions feel free to ask me in the comments, I will try to clarify whatever I can. Thanks and enjoy.
