I’ve decided to dedicate this next week to all things BABY! To start this project, and the ensemble set, I’m making an infant hat first. In keeping with the Granny Square theme (See 365 Days of Granny Squares project), I’ve created this cute little cap that is sure to keep your precious bundle warm.
Continue to follow this series as I will be making booties, a dress, and a security blanket lovey for a very special baby.
Here is a close-up photo of what the hat looks like:

There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.

Materials you will need:
–Bernat Softee Baby in Pink (Approx. 100 yards)
–Herrschners Whisper Soft Yarn in White (Approx. 360 Yards)
–Size G6-4.25mm Crochet Hook
-This hat makes the granny squares first, then the rim of the hat, then we work the other side of the granny squares and work up the hat to close up the top.
-You could use the granny square design and make that in a headband design as well! That would be really cool!
-This pattern is in multiples of 9 so you can make as many granny squares as you want to make it bigger and follow along with the decreases as the same in my hat
-This pattern is written for an infant. This will fit a baby that is 3-6 months old. Use a smaller hook to make it smaller or a larger hook to make it bigger.

Thank you so much for your video tutorial to make this granny square baby hat! You give wonderful and easy to follow instructions!
I am making one for my first grand daughter, due September 6th. I wanted her to be able to wear it in the hospital after her first bath so I needed a smaller, newborn size. I only used 5 granny squares (instead of the 6) and the size seems great. I have completed all the squares, the trim around the bottom and the first 3 rows for the top of the hat. My question is about decreasing from this point on. As I only have the 5 squares, do I still follow your instructions regarding decreasing? I’m not a novice crotcheter but it’s been a long time since I done this and have never followed instructions before.
Any help you could provide would be so appreciated!
