This roundup of crochet baby boy hats consists of over 15 free patterns. Many of these are also great for baby girls, but I wanted to do a roundup that was already done in boyish colours.
Some of these crochet hat patterns are also available in multiple sizes, or, they can easily be adjusted to a size you need. This crochet hat size chart is a good reference to help you make them to the circumference that you need for your baby’s head.
These crochet bay hats make for great gift ideas by themselves, but you can match them up with some booties, mitts and a baby blanket to make a complete baby shower gift set.
At the very bottom you’ll also find some fun hats that would be great for photo shoots.
The best part about these crochet baby hat patterns is that you don’t need much yarn to complete them, making them a great project to use up those leftovers from making other baby items.
Any baby acrylic yarn should work provided you get a good match on the gauge. In some cases, it might be just a matter of choosing a different crochet hook size to get the size you need.
Despite the pretty textures, colors, and fun stitch patterns, these free crochet hat patterns can be made with a bit of practice by any brave crochet beginner.
Zane’s Beanie by Cre8tion Crochet
This pretty ribbed beanie is available in two sizes; preemie and newborn. The ribs not only add beauty, but I imagine they also help to make this a super warm beanie for the cold winter weather.
Preemie Hat by Oui Crochet
Here is another one with a pretty ribbed texture. The baby hat pattern is given in one size for a preemie along with instructions on how to modify this to any size you wish.
Seeing Stars Beanie by EyeLoveKnots
Worked up in a simple stitch, this pretty hat is great for everyone as you can easily customize by choosing your favorite appliques and colors. The pattern is available in multiple sizes and is perfect for beginners.
Tutti Frutti Baby Hat by Posh Pooch Designs
Here is a fun hat to keep the sun out of your little one’s eyes. It’s shown here in bright and fun colors, which is perfect for both boys and girls, but I imagine it would look just as cute in a beige, brown or any other color suitable for a boy.
