13 Baby Hat Crochet Patterns (All FREE!)

Super cute and easy beginner crochet baby hats patterns that make a perfect baby shower gift or charity donation

Toddler or baby hats and beanies are often one of the first patterns that beginner crocheters attempt because they are usually a fairly easy project that uses basic stitches.

Not only that, but hats, especially for kids and babies, are pretty small so they work up super fast which can give beginners a boost of confidence to try a more advanced pattern.

So, I have found for you 13 adorable crochet beanie and hat patterns for babies from newborns to toddlers. Plus, these patterns are ALL FREE so I hope you will give them a try.
