5 Little Monsters: Blush Baby Bonnet

Blush Baby Bonnet

A few weeks ago I was sent some yarn to review from Appalachian Baby. It was kind of fun to try out something new and the colors were so soft and pretty, perfect for a baby. The first thought that popped into my head when I saw it was baby bonnet, so that is what I decided to make and now I am sharing the pattern with you.



The yarn is an organic cotton sport weight and it came in a pack of 3 colors, although you can get them individually as well. Perfect for a little baby project. There were 3 different color choices to choose from in the 3 packs, I chose a pack with Natural, Silver, and Blush. I decided to use the blush to make my bonnet and it took less than one ball to make, I still have I think over half of the ball left. I have another project in mind for the other 2 balls, natural and silver, that I will share when it is done.


I wanted to make a very simple, but also pretty and delicate, bonnet. The pattern I came up with uses paired double crochet stitches to create a slightly open stitch with a scalloped edging along the brim. I added crocheted ties to finish the bonnet. It was a really quick crochet project and I love the way the light pink color looked. It was exactly the look I was going for, simple and feminine.


How to Crochet the Blush Baby Bonnet

You will need:

Begin with a magic circle, the back of the hat is worked in the round, then the sides are worked back and forth turning at the end of each row.

Round 1: in mr, ch 2 (does not count as a stitch), 10 dc, sl st to first dc to join (10 dc)

Round 2: ch 2 (does not count as a stitch), 2 dc in each stitch, sl st to first dc to join (20 dc)

Round 3: ch 2 (does not count as a stitch), [2 dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next] repeat around, sl st to first dc to join (30 dc)

Round 4: ch 2 (does not count as a stitch), [2 dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next 2 stitches] repeat around, sl st to first dc to join (40 dc)

Round 5: ch 2 (does not count as a stitch), [2 dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next 3 stitches] repeat around, sl st to first dc to join (50 dc)

at this point the back of the bonnet is finished and and you will start working the rest of the binned back and forth in rows, it should measure about 4 1/2" across

Row 6: ch 3 (this counts as your first dc), sk 1 stitch, [2 dc in each of the nest 2 stitches, sk 2] 11 times, sk 1, dc in next stitch (46 dc with 4 stitches left unworked from the previous row)

Row 7-11: ch 3 (counts as first dc), sk 1 stitch, [2 dc in each of the nest 2 stitches, sk 2] 11 times, sk 1, dc in next stitch (46 dc)

Row 12 (ties and edging): sl st into the side of the last stitch, ch 40, sl st in 40 ch, sl st into the space between the first and second dc of the previous row (first tie made), [dc in each of the next 4 stitches, sl st in gap between cluster of dc in previous row] 10 times, dc in last 4 stitches, sl stitch in the space between the last 2 stitches of previous row, ch 40, slip st in each of the 40 ch, sl st into the side of the dc in previous row (second tie made) (11 scallops along edge of bonnet and 2 ties)

finish off, cut yarn, weave in ends, when you fold the hat flat like in the pictures it should measure about 5" across from the back edge to the scalloped edge.
