Crochet Baby Turban Pattern & Tutorial

This quick and easy crocheted hat makes a great handmade baby shower gift.

The hardest part might be choosing the color.

A faux rib pattern gives the little turban added interest.

Have fun! I dare you to make just one.


Crochet Baby Turban Pattern – size 0-3 months


Martha Stewart Extra Soft Wool Blend or similar worsted-weight baby yarn (you can get two hats from one skein).
US G6/4.00mm crochet hook
Yarn Needle

Stitches: ch- chain, dc-double crochet, hdc-half double crochet, sl st- slip stitch

The first 5 rounds are crocheted in the round and joined with a slip stitch in the starting chain. What you might consider the “wrong side” of the top of the hat becomes the “right side”  once the rib stitch begins at row 6.  From round 6 on, at the end of each round, join with a slip stitch before turning to begin the next round (this means you will alternate working from the front and the back of the hat).

Repeat pattern inside the asterisks. Total stitch count for each round is in parentheses. Chain does not count toward final stitch count.

Gauge: Rounds 1-4 = 2 3/4″ height

Start with a Magic ring (http://www.crochetme. com/forums/t/28917.aspx)

  • Row 1- ch 3, dc 11 inside magic ring; join with a sl st in top of beginning ch.
  • Row 2- ch 3, *2 dc in each dc* around; join with a sl st in top of beginning ch. (22 dc)
  • Row 3- ch 3, *2 dc in first dc. 1 dc in next dc* around; join with a sl st in top of beginning ch. (33 dc)
  • Row 4- ch 3, *2 dc in first dc. 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc* around; join with a sl st in top of beginning ch. (44 dc)
  • Row 5- ch 3, *2 dc in first dc. 1 dc in each of the next 3 stitches* around; join with a sl st in top of beginning ch (55 dc)
  • Row 6- ch 3, dc in every stitch around; join with a sl st in top of beginning ch. Turn. (55 dc)
  • Row 7- ch 2, hdc in every dc around in back loop only; join with a sl st in top of beginning ch. Turn. (55 hdc)
  • Row 8- ch 3, dc in each hdc front loop only; join with a sl st in top of beginning ch. Turn. (55 dc)
  • Repeat rows 7 and 8 three more times (creating 4 “ribs” of stitches). You will complete 14 rounds in all.

Finish off. Weave in ends.

Thread yarn through yarn needle. Using a double thickness, wrap yarn from top of first rib to the edge of the hat and pull tight. Wind it about 7 times to make the turban “knot”. Secure yarn and hide end under the knot.

I just made my first one! It turned out very nice! I think I’m going to try a smaller hook for a smaller size (I used an H because I was lazy and didn’t feel like searching for the G lol). But it’s adorable and cute and awesome! I can’t wait until my daughter is born so I can plop it on her little head. So excited! 4 months to wait…

Nice post. I was checking continuously this blog and I am impressed!

Very helpful info particularly the ultimate section :) I care
for such info a lot. I used to be seeking this particular
info for a very lengthy time. Thank you and good luck.

Hello, I really like your pattern, but I noticed that you asked for us to not make the hats for profit. I am in college and looking for ways to make extra cash and there is nothing I love more than crocheting. I was wondering if I could get your concent, I understand if not.

Would you mind if my friends and I made the turbans and donated them to hospitals for premature and stillborn babies?

Hey I recently found this pattern and attempted to make one of these for my future niece. I used a 4.25 mm crochet hook because that was the closest size I had and I just tried it on the most thin and soft yarn I had but it turned out HUGE! And by huge, I mean a little too big for my own head! Lol! I’m not sure what I did wrong because my stitches counted out right and I didn’t think that the difference in yarn would make that much difference in size! Can you help me?

i have made many hats and blankets. But I am very confused by work the right side of the hat and the wrong side. Do we stop working in rounds? Would love any help. Thank you

Hi there, please could someone advise How I would be able to make this for 12-18 months and not newborn?
