Free Crochet Pattern {Spring Chick Hat}

free spring chick crochet pattern

Spring is here! I know that many people around the country might not be feeling it, but at least they know that warmer weather should be just around the corner! Here in Florida, we've really been having some beautiful weather - fantastic temperatures, beautiful skies. With spring in mind, I whipped up this adorable little chick hat. The results are adorable and it takes less than an hour to make - can't be that when you need a quick gift. If you have a friend who's having a baby this spring, this just might be the perfect little gift. 


Materials:
-Worsted weight yarn (I used Bernat Handicrafter in Robin's Egg Blue and yellow)
-J hook (or whatever size necessary to achieve correct size)
-Buttons for eyes
-Stitch marker to use in the first stitch of each round
Pattern Notes:
-Pattern is worked through both loops.
-This pattern is worked in spiral. There will be no chains or slipstitches at the ends of a round.
-This hat should fit babies whose heads measure between 13 and 15 inches.

Round 11: Ch 1., HDC in the next stitch and in each stitch around with the new color.
Rounds 12-14: HDC in the next stitch and in each stitch around. On round 14, sl st in next.

Stop here for a beanie and add one round of SC. If you’d like earflaps, you can follow the earflap directions on my owl pattern.

Beak:
Ch 4.
Row 1: 1 sc in second ch from hook, HDC in next, DC in next. Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing on the hat.

Once you've made your hat and your beak, you're read to assemble! Just sew buttons on for eyesand sew the beak on. If you'd like to add the little tufts, cut 3 strands of yarn approximately 9 inches long. Fold them in half and pull the loop through. Pull the loose ends through that loop to attach the sides of the hat.
