Measurements for my Crochet Baby Hat pattern: My Crochet Baby hat fits a larger newborn to approximately 3 months of age. The Length of my hat measures 5.5 inches -6 inches, and the Head Circumference is approximately 15 inches.  With this pattern, I start with the brim, and crochet towards the top of the baby hat.  If you want to change the head circumference for your baby hat, you would change the number in your starting chain. After you finish crocheting your starting chain, measure it. Your starting chain should measure the same as the head circumference that you want for your baby hat.

To change the length of your baby hat, you could add 1 more round of double crochet. Another alternative for increasing the length of your baby hat, would be to add more rounds for your crochet wave stitch rounds. It takes 2 rounds to complete 1 full crochet wave stitch (Largest part of wave measures approximately 1 inch).  I will show you in the written pattern, where you could add length to your baby hat.

The full crochet wave stitch preferably requires a beginning chain to be a multiple of 10, but you can get away with using a beginning chain that is a multiple of 5 (half wave).

GENERAL MATERIALS LIST:  You can mix and match yarn colors for different looks. Just be aware that different yarn choices can change the look and size of your crochet baby hat when finished. Also, changing your crochet hook size, will also affect the size of your crochet baby hat.         

-Crochet Hook Size 3.75mm.

-Tapestry Needle

-Scissors.

**My yarn recommendations (On You Tube video tutorial, I used some different yarn choices. So, you can see the broad range of yarn choices that you could have when making your own unique crochet baby hat.):

-1 skein Big Twist Rainbow Classic 100% Acrylic Yarn color Turquoise.  You will have plenty of yarn left over.

-1 skein Big Twist Rainbow Classic 100% Acrylic Yarn color Royal Blue. You will have plenty of yarn left over.

My You Tube video tutorial hat is slightly larger than my crochet written pattern waves of love baby hat.  The You Tube video tutorial crochet waves of love baby hat will fit a baby 3-6 months of age, and the circumference is approx 1cm larger, because I made a larger starting chain. The written pattern crochet waves of love hat is 1cm longer in length, because I added 1 more round of double crochet. The crochet written pattern waves of love baby hat size has a more snug fit on my baby model, which fits crochet clothes size 3-6 months of age.

STARTING WITH THE BRIM OF THE HAT:  I started with Turquoise

-Ch60.  Starting Chain.

**Remember to try and start your chain with a number that is preferably a multiple of 10, but you could still use a starting chain that is a multiple of 5. Measure your chain with a tape measure, and compare that measurement to the circumference size on the baby hat sizing chart.(Mine measures approximately 15 inches.) 

First Row– Ch2, make a dc into the 4th ch from the hook, and 1dc into every stitch back across. (60 total)

-Fold in half, and make sure that the brim is not twisted. Slst into the top stitch of the first dc on the opposite side.  This will join the top stitches of the brim of the hat. You should have a loose yarn end at the bottom of the first dc on the opposite side. Use your tapestry needle to sew the bottom stitches of the brim together.  Your brim should now be joined into a circle.  Now you will be working in rounds.  The right side should be facing towards you as you crochet.

Second round – Change color.  I changed mine to Royal Blue.  Cut your previous color yarn and tie a knot. Bury your loose yarn ends as you crochet.

-Ch3, Make 1dc into every st in the round. Slst into the top stitch of your first ch3. (60 total)

This is where you can add an additional round of 1dc in every stitch if you need to increase the length of your baby hat, which is what I did. 

Third round- Ch3, Make 1dc into every st in the round. Slst into the top stitch of your first ch3. (60 total)

Fourth roundStart of crochet wave stitch design. *Make 1sc into the next 5 stitches, then make 1dc into the next 5 stitches. Repeat from * for one round. Slst into the first sc that you made for the round. (60 total)

 Fifth round– ch1 (Counts as your first sc for the round). Make 1sc into the next 4 stitches (Each sc that you make, should line up with the 5 sc from the previous round), then make 1dc into the next 5 stitches (Each dc that you make, should line up with the 5dc from the previous round). *Make 1sc into the next 5 stitches, then make 1dc into the next 5 stitches. Repeat from * for one round. Slst into the first sc that you made for the round. (60 total)

Make sure that you double check that you are slip stitching into the correct stitch. You should have 5sc. You slip st into the first ch1 that you made for the round.  You have now completed 2 rounds of a full wave. It takes 2 rounds to complete a full wave, you can measure your wave with a tape measure. Mine measures approximately 1 inch.

***This is where you can add length to your baby hat by adding additional crochet wave stitch rounds, depending on what size you want for your baby hat (Or Larger Hat). Remember that since you started with a sc (or ch1) in the last full crochet wave stitch, you will start your next crochet wave stitch with a dc (or ch3). Similar to how I will show you how I start my Sixth round next.

Sixth round– Join your alternate color. I switched back to Turquoise. Cut your previous color yarn and tie a knot. Bury your loose yarn ends as you crochet. Since we started our last full crochet wave stitch round with a sc (or ch1), we will start our new crochet wave stitch round with a dc (or ch3).

Ch3 (Counts as our first dc for the round), make 1dc into the next 4 stitches, then make 1sc into the next 5 stitches. *Make 1dc into the next 5 stitches, then 1sc into the next 5 stitches. Repeat from * for one round. Make a slst into the top st of the first ch3 that you made. (60 total)

Seventh round– Ch3, make 1dc into the next 4 stitches (Each dc should line up with the previous rounds dc), then make 1sc into the next5 stitches (Each sc should line up with the previous rounds sc). *Make 1dc into the next 5 stitches, then make 1sc into the next 5 stitches. Repeat from * for one round.  (60 total)

-You have now completed 2 rounds of a full wave.

Eighth round– Join your alternate color. I switched back to Royal Blue. Cut your previous color yarn and tie a knot. Bury your loose yarn ends as you crochet. We are going to start a new crochet wave in the eighth round. We started the last crochet wave with a dc ( or ch3), so we start with a sc (or ch1) for our new wave.

-Ch1, make 1sc into the next 4 stitches, then make 1dc into the next 5 stitches. *Make 1sc into the next 5 stitches, then make 1dc into the next 5 stitches. Repeat from * for one round.  (60 total) 

Ninth round-Ch1, make 1sc into the next 4 stitches, then make 1dc into the next 5 stitches. *Make 1sc into the next 5 stitches, then make 1dc into the next 5 stitches. Repeat from * for one round. (60 total)

Make sure that all of your sc and dc line up with the previous rows sc and dc.

Decrease Rounds:

Tenth round-We are starting a new wave, and the last wave started with a sc

(or ch1), so we will start our new wave with a dc (or ch3).

-Ch3, make 1dc into the next 2st, then Dc2tog. *Make 1sc into the next 3 st, then sc2tog, then make 1dc into the next 3 st, then Dc2tog. Repeat from * for one round. Slst to join with the top stitch of the first ch3 that you made. (48 total)

Eleventh round-ch3, make 1dc into the next 3 stitches.* Make 1sc into the next 4 stitches, then make 1dc into the next 4 stitches. Repeat from * for one round.  You completed a full wave (48 total)

-Ch1, make 1sc in the next stitch, then Sc2tog.  *Make 1dc into the next 2 stitches and then Dc2tog, then make 1sc into the next 2 stitches and then Sc2tog. Repeat from * for one round. Slst to join with the top stitch of the first ch1 that you made. (36 total)

Thirteenth round– Ch1, make 1sc into the next 2 stitches. *Make 1dc into the next 3 stitches, then 1sc into the next 3 stitches. Repeat from * for one round. You completed a full wave (36 total)

Fourteenth round– Ch3, then Dc2tog. *Make 1sc in 1 st, then sc2tog, then make 1dc in 1 st then dc2tog. Repeat from * for one round. (24 total)

Fifteenth round– Ch1, make 1sc in 3 st then sc2tog. *Make 1sc into 4 st, then sc2tog. Repeat from * for one round.

Sixteenth round-Ch1, make 1sc in 2 st, then sc2tog. *Make 1sc into 3 st, then sc2tog. Repeat from * for one round.

-Skip a st, slst, all the way around, and then slst closed.
