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.
