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

Supplies:

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.

How would you do it for 6-9 month Olds without taking away from the pattern. I wanna make these for my babies. I’m an early head start teacher would love to Gove this as a gift to them.

Use a larger hook and thicker yarn, but that’s mostly trial and error.

I would just find a hat pattern for the age/size of head and follow it until it would fall right by the ears then finish it up repeating row 6-8

You could use a lager hook size and thicker yarn and work as stated in pattern.
