This Newborn Chick Knot Hat is one I have been storing up, and is one of my favorite newborn hats. I just love how fun the knot in the top of the hat looks, and adds a little extra to it.
12″ circumference (yarn should stretch)
4 3/4″ long from knot to bottom of hat
*These are our finished measurements. If yours don’t fit within these measurement, please check your gauge.
Worsted weight yarn (4-medium)
I-9 (5.50mm) crochet hook
2 small black buttons
Yarn needle, to weave ends
6 dc stitches x 3 rows is 2″
*Change the hook size to obtain the gauge.
- (11 sts) means how many stitches you should have at the end of the row. That count does NOT include the chain.
- You may want to add a double crochet row or 2 if you wish to make it longer.
