Rain or Bowler Hat For Babies

IMG_0300

One of my favorite things to crochet are baby booties. And while I was browsing on Ravelry I found this adorable pattern for Rain boots by Repeat Crafter Me. After making them I decided something was missing and decided to make a rain hat to go with it. After a search for “rain hat” on Ravelry turned up nothing, I decided to try making my own pattern. For my first pattern, I think it turned out pretty well.

Incidentally, this also works in black as a bowler Thompson and Thomson hat (you know, from Tintin), or in red as a Paddington Bear hat.

I have decided to post the pattern for free, please do not sell the pattern or claim it as your own. You may not sell the finished product online.

The yarn I am using is Caron United in Mustard.

You will need:
Size G/4.25 mm or size H/5.00mm crochet hook
Yellow yarn
Tapestry needle (for weaving in ends)

Rnd 1: Magic ring, ch 2, 11 dc into ring, join to first dc.
Rnd 2: ch 2, 2dc in each dc around, join to first dc (22 sts)

Rnd 3: ch 2, *1 dc in one stitch, 2 dc in next* repeat from * to* 10 more times, join to first dc (33 sts)

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Roll rnds 12-14 up to make a sweet little brim.

Don’t forget to post photos of your finished hats on Ravelry so I can see them! I pick my favorites every month and post them on my blog along with links to the project.
