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 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 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.

You were right! I couldn’t make just one! I made three during our weekend drive :)

I am not sure what I am doing wrong but my ribbing looks nothing like yours. On hdc, front loop only, is that the very front loop? As hdc technically has 3 loops.


LGC Reply:

I can’t figure it out either


Juliebelle Reply:

The stitch that your working into next has 2 little pieces on top, front loop only means to work your DC or HDC into only the front piece of yarn instead of both, back loop only means work it in the back piece of yarn

Such an adorable pattern… and your model… SO CUTE! She is adorable!.. I have 7 siblings but the baby is 3 now… seeing your cute baby girl makes me want one of my own lol :)

I adore this pattern/beanie. It’s so easy and quick and looks gorgeous.
I was wondering though, if you have a pattern for 6months and up? I have tried to alter this one but not the greatest luck. Thank you


Juliebelle Reply:

If you do another increase on the crown , like DC2 in the first, DC in the next 4 , 2DC in the next, then add another 2 rows of the ribbing, it will probably work out to be bigger

Do you have a video tutorial for this hat?
I’m trying to do the knot but for some reason it’s just not coming out right.
I’m pretty much at the finish line, I just can’t get the knot to work lol

(Sjostrom speaks in “Wild Strawberries,” but I haven’t seen that since seeing any of
the films he directed, “Laugh, Clown, Laugh” as well as the Gish-Hanson pairings; I also recently
saw “Flesh and the Devil” for the first time with Hanson as
the friend of John Gilbert who marries Greta Garbo.

Quick question for anyone who has made this… Any idea why my hats keep ending up too wide? Everything is great until I get to row 6 where I should have 55DC. I end up with at least 71. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. Any ideas would be very helpful! Thank you!


Lee Reply:

when I first started crocheting hats/beanies mine always came out big and too wide. I finally figured out that I was marking my beginning stitch wrong. Use a stitch marker ( I use a safety pin) and after you do your beginning chain ( ch1,ch2 or ch3…) put the marker through the loop that is on your hook. Move your marker with each round.

Hope this helps.

Is this is american stitch or british?? I’ve made the mistake before :/

Hi! I love this, am on to my 3rd already, baby is due in another 4 weeks! I had trouble with the rib on my first one….but what was confusing me is the turn…I realized that you had to work out the front/back loop in relation to the right side of the hat….once I my head around it I was fine! I was wondering if you would consider selling a cottage license for this pattern….I have had so many people wanting one already, but I totally understand if you don’t want this….


Arielle August 19, 2014 at 1:01 pm

This is the most adorable turban hat ever!! Thanks for sharing it :) would you happen to have a pattern for a two year old? I am a little new to crochet and I don’t want to mess around with the measurements too much by myself and am not sure what I should change..

My daughter’s head circumference is approx 48 cm. TIA
