Creating a loop with the band you will sew the ends together with slip stitches and then continue on one side of the band with single crochets, evenly space out in multiples of three about 36 stitches. (if you end up with more or less just thats fine just make sure they are a multiple of 3)

Row 1 (of Double crochets)
Do not tie off,

Ch2, DC in the next stitch, Dc in the next stitch but finish the final pull through with the burgundy, dropping the black working it into the stitches as you go, switch from burgundy to black every three DC, (36)

Row 2, Drop the Dark colour, attach the other colour, do the same as the row before but interchanging the red and the burgundy (burgundy will be carried through each row, you can cut the other colours off as you need them if you like and tie in the ends or carfully detangle yourself as you go and keep them  all attached... which yes is a pain in the ass... I left it attached cuz i loathe tying in ends...)

Row 3 - 7 repeat rows 1 and 2 until the end

Tie off leaving a long tail, sew around the perimeter of the hat and pull tight to  close up the hole

  1. Hi There, I am just wondering for what age group does the baby size fit? The baby hats I usually make are split up into 3 groups: 0-3m, 3-6m, 6-12m
