What size should a newborn hat be?
A crochet newborn hat usually measures 12-14 inches in circumference and 4-5 inches in height.
It should fit snugly, covering the baby’s ears without being too tight. Using a soft, stretchy yarn can help ensure a comfortable fit.
How many stitches do you need to crochet a newborn hat?
The crown of a newborn hat should be about 48 double crochet stitches. The 1st round of your hat will have 11 stitches.
Increase to 22 in the 2nd round. Increase to 33 in the 3rd round. Increase to 44 in the 4th round. Lastly, increase to 48 in the 5th round.
The crown will now fit a newborn baby. Now, crochet in rounds without increases until you reach the desired hat height.
