1920's Baby Bonnet (crochet) New born

Stormy Stewart


Saw a picture of this cute kid in a beanie with a large flower on the top (but off center a little) and was thinking it was so cute. Well it was either start learning to read stitches (which I really have no desire) or recreate it. So here it is.

It was way too easy and took about 30 minutes including the flower

How to Make 1920's Baby Bonnet (crochet) New born


  • 1Note: I picked up only the back top stitch to create each row. This gave it a line effect for each row. Remember this is for the entire hat.
  • 2Making a circle
    Stitch out 3 stitches and then for the first row go around the original stitches doubling the stitch in each hole. Do that for two more stitches. It will look like a small circle.

    Then a row of straight stitching.

    From there I added two stitches in one hole, then regular stitch then 2 in one again and continued around that row.

    Then a row of straight stitching.

    Then add a stitch as you feel it needs and extra until you have 36 stitches and just continue stitching 36 stitches until you get 14 rows and tie off.
  • 3For the flower.

    I started thinking rose but after completing it looks like a Pansey with three distinct pedals. Could just be in the way it went together. But you could simply row it instead of gather and have a rose.

    Stitch 30 stitches. then make one line of stitches and pull end down to close. Now take a piece of yarn and stitch through at the original stitches. pull or gather your choice. I pulled. Then each side is together sew onto the hat with the ends that are attached.
