Sewing clothing can be tricky, especially trying to fit on wriggly babies and children, but even the newest sewer can make a great baby hat that fits. This soft baby hat is made out of soft knit fabric and comes with a fitted top and a cuff that can be rolled up for more cuteness!

The baby hat pattern can be made with an interlock knit, jersey knit, or even rib knit (although rib knit is more stretchy so you would probably want to downsize if you picked this type of fabric).

This beautiful and easy baby hat pattern comes to you completely free, and will sew up SO quickly. It’s available in 5 different sizes covering preemie baby to 12  months:

  • Preemie
  • Small Newborn
  • Large Newborn
  • 3 – 6 Months
  • 6 – 12 Months
