Free Pattern - Bitty Baby Beanie or Preemie (4-5lbs) Beanie

I was crocheting away at my orders last night when my sweet 3 year old Calleigh brought me her Bitty Baby that Oma Got her for christmas, and asked me kindly to make her a pink hat with curls. I couldn't resist the fun idea and I knew it would work up in a matter of minutes. (15- 20 to be exact!)

So here is a super quick project that you can make for your daughters bitty baby doll (American Girl) or  it also works as a Preemie hat for about a 4-5lb baby. 

Save to your Raverly Favorites

Bitty Baby Hat or 4-5 Pound Preemie hat

Skill Level : Easy


* Worsted weight yarn of choice. I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn or Vanna’s Choice    
* You’ll be working with two strands of the color for the entire pattern unless otherwise noted.
*  The number at the end of each row is the stitch count for the row(#)
*  Chain stitch does not count in stitch count!
*  Hook size(s) : N/P -15 (10.00 mm)
*  Tapestry Needle
*  Gauge 4” x 4” swatch = 4 rows of 8 dc

Stitches used:
(ch) chain, (st) stitch, (sl st) slip stitch, (sc) single crochet, (dc) double crochet,

  • Bitty Baby (American Doll Hat) or Preemie hat that fits about a 4-5 pound baby Hat - Size 12 inches around
    Approx measurement laying flat - Height 4 1/2” x width 5 1/2”

    (N - Hook)

    Round 1 - ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from the hook, join to 1st sc (6)

    Round 2 - ch 2, 2 dc in each sc, join to 1st dc (12)

    Round 3 - ch 2, *(2 dc in dc, 1 dc in dc) repeat from *, join to 1st dc (18)

    Round 4 - 6 ch 2, dc in each dc, join to 1st dc (18)

    Round 7 - ch 1, sc in next 4 sts, ch 15, 3 sc in next 5 sc, sl st in next 10 ch, sc back to main row in next sc, sc in next 8 sts, ch 15, 3 sc in next 5 sc, sl st in next 10 ch, sc back to main row in next sc, sc in the remaining sts to end of row, sl st to 1st sc, fasten off & weave in ends

I can't get the numbers to match yours. In round 3 I end up with 24. Don't know what I'm doing wrong. I am using a chunky weight instead of using 2 strands.

I'm trying to make a hat hat will fit a dolls head size.

HI Cat24- On round 3 make sure you are doing (2dc, then 1 dc in the next) sounds like you are doing 2 dc in each when it should only be 2 dc in every other stitch around. This is designed for the bitty baby specifically. So if it's for another doll it may not fit and you make need to make adjustments. This doll is about 12 inches around.
