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. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. Currently, my group is working on hats and blankets to give to first time mothers in need. This will be such a sweet added surprise!

  2. Thanks for the pattern my hat has turned out great so far. In a little confused as to how you attach the pigtails. Did you tie each string to the hat. Did you attach it from the inside of outside of the hat?

      I attached the pigtails using the string that holds them together (the string in the middle that tied them together), and I attached them from the inside. hmmm… I used the crochet hook to pull the strings to through to the inside, then tied secure knots on the inside. Hope that helps! :)

  3. I make quite a few baby blankets of all patterns to go to childrens hospital in Toronto, I use many patterns but my favourite is one large granny square, Just keep repeating row after row the same pattern. This is soooo easy I don’t even have to look at what I am doing. I love it the best to do in the car when my husband & I travel.

      I don’t use wool, I use Vanna’s Choice Baby Yarn, I think it’s just acrylic, and i get it from joanns

    These look adorable! My daughter wants one. How would I adjust the size for an adult?

    Many thanks!

      The only difference between the hats is how many dc (double crochet) you do in the very first round, and also how many rounds “dc in each dc around” down you go after round 5. So you might have to mess around with it a little, but if it was me I’d start with the 2T pattern, do 13 or 14 dc in round one, and add two extra rounds between 5 and 8. Hope that helps! :)

  9. Hello, just found your adorable cabbage patch hat. I’m confused where it says 10 sets of 2 should it be 8 sets of 2 a total of 16 sts …thank you for sharing and setting me straight lol

      Hmmm… that’s a good question. I wrote this pattern over two years ago, so I’m not completely sure… i think I did 10 sets though, so you may just have to play around with it to see what works best for you. The nice thing about this beanie is that it’s stretchy, so that gives you some freedom with the pattern :) Good Luck!

    Is it 50 strains per pigtail? Love the pattern. Thank you for sharing.

      Yep! 50 PER pigtail, makes em’ nice and thick, you can do less if you think that would be too heavy for a very little baby. Glad you like the pattern! Happy Halloween!! ♥

    I’m making the 6-12 month size and it is TINY! My baby doesn’t have a big head and it looks like a yamaka on her. I would suggest adding a few more rounds. I would also like to see pictures of it on an actual child. I’m following it step for step. Am I doing something wrong?

  13. Hello, and thanks for such a cute pattern! Do you slip stitch to join each row, or just continue working in the round with a stitch marker? 😊

      I’m so glad you like the pattern :) I prefer to work in the round with a stitch marker, but the pattern would probably be fine either way. Happy Hooking! :D

    About how much yarn should I buy for one hat?

    Reply
    • woodlandrealm10

       /  February 8, 2017

      One skein is sufficient, I often have a little yarn left over. Unless I’m making a 2T, in which case I have perfectly barely enough to make one hat. Happy Hooking ♥

      I don’t make the hats anymore since I’ve got too busy these days, so I won’t have time to make a video for you, however there are many crochet videos on YouTube. Good Luck and Happy Crocheting :)

      You can use ANY beanie pattern, simply google “free knitted beanie hat pattern”. To add the front loops you can search “knitted loop stitch” on YouTube, then add the pigtails like I say in my pattern. Hope that helps :)

      I’m so glad you like it! It doesn’t come together quickly, since it’s only a simple beanie, with a couple rows of loops stitches. The most time consuming part are the pigtails, but so worth it :D
