All Sizes of Cabbage Patch Hat

Lately the only project I’ve been working on are cabbage patch doll hats, LOTS of them, this photo only shows some of the hats I’ve made over the last few weeks. I’m not sure why the hats suddenly became so popular, but it was great timing for me since I needed new shoes and didn’t have the money to buy them!

In crocheting that many hats I finished tweaking my pattern , and have one for each age now. The differences are in bold:

Cabbage Patch Doll Hat
Size 3-6 Month
Hook: Size H crochet hook
Yarn: Vanna’s Choice Soft
Round 1: ch 3, join to form loop, ch 3, 8 dc
Place a “marker yarn” in a different color to keep track of rounds.
Round 2: 2 dc each dc around. (10 sets of 2)
Round 3: *2 dc in next dc, dc in next 2 dc*, repeat from * around.
Round 4-7: dc in each dc around.
Round 9: sc in each dc around, 1 slip st.
turn the hat inside out, slip st into last sc made, then start loop stitch
Round 10-13: loop stitch in each stitch around.
Round 14: sc in each stitch around.

Making Pigtails
For the pigtails, cut 50 strands of yarn, 15 inches long. Tie a 10 inch string in the middle of the strands with a double knot. Comb pigtail with fingers to straighten it out. Cut a piece of yarn 10 inches long, tie with a double knot three inches from the top of pigtail, let ends hang to become part of the hair. Cut a piece of yarn five inches long, tie with a double knot one inch from the first hair tie, let ends hang to become part of the hair.

Attaching Pigtails
Use the top loose string ends to join to the hat between rows 3 and 4. Trim the pigtail one inch down from the second hair tie. Tie a 12 inch ribbon bow over the mess you made in joining. Repeat for the other side!

  1. This hat is adorable. How many skeins of yarn should I buy for a 6 to 12 month size hat?

      One skein of yarn is sufficient, I often have a little yarn left over. Unless I’m making a 4T, in which case I have perfectly barely enough to make one hat.

      There are many crochet videos on YouTube to learn the loop stitch. Happy Crocheting ♥

    What size is 2T? Also what ply wool should I use?

      2T is roughly the size for the head of a two year old toddler, of course all kids are a little different. For the yarn size, I always use size 4, also known as “worsted weight”. I never use wool, but I suppose it might work if you have soft wool.

    Hello! This is a lovely pattern – can you advise how it may be used please? Is it ok to make these to sell, or is it just for personal use? Thank you

      This hat was not my idea, this is only my version of it. Anyone can use ANY beanie pattern, simply google “free crochet beanie hat pattern”, then add the front loops and long pigtails. So you are free to make, sell, share this pattern with whoever would love it! Enjoy! :)

    I just need to clarify something. In the second row it says Two dc around (10 dc two times) wouldn’t it be 9 dc two times?

      Hi Mandy, I assume we are looking at the Size 3-6 Month? In which case you are probably correct, it’s probably 9dc. I don’t make the hats anymore since I’ve got too busy these days, so I can’t say with certainty. However, if you have your tiny hat wearer nearby I recommend trying it on right before you do the decorative loop rows to see if the hat seems to be fitting, if not take it all out and try again! :)

        Thank You! I still get confused at reading patterns so I wasn’t sure if I had missed something or not lol. The baby I’m making it for isn’t even born yet so I’ll just guesstimate or find a sizing scale online to go by. Thanks again! Happy Easter!

      You can use ANY beanie pattern, simply google “free crochet beanie hat pattern”, then add the front loops and longer pigtails. Hope that helps :)

      I’m so glad you like it! So, my little toddler’s heads didn’t grow much from 2 to 4, and the hat is a little stretchy, so use the 2T pattern for a 4 year old, or you can use ANY beanie pattern, simply google “free crochet beanie hat pattern”, then add the front loops and longer pigtails. Hope that helps :)
