Crochet Baby Derby Hat


by Ellen Bloom


Baby Derby Hat

I’ve crocheted this hat so many times in so many different color and texture combinations. It’s extremely versatile. I’ve given the derby as a gift, and I’ve donated many to Stitches From the Heart. It’s very easy to change the size from preemie to toddler to adult — just keep increasing between the front posts until you reach the desired size. Play with color so your hat is perfect for the baby who will wear it!

Materials List

  • Various colors of worsted weight yarn (I used Lion Brand kitchen cotton)
  • 4.0mm (size “G”) crochet hook
