30 Minute Crochet Baby Bonnet - Quick and Easy Pattern

by LizM

Quick and easy crochet baby bonnet pattern. Finish in as little as 30 minutes. Great project for partial skeins and last minute gifts.

Saturday morning and your computer beeps with a calender reminder. The baby shower is that afternoon and you forgot to make a gift. What do you do? Whip up several of these incredibly quick and easy crochet baby bonnets with scrap yarn of course! Whether you are a veteran at crochet or new to the yarn, these baby bonnets are simple and easy to complete. And as an added bonus, they are made with one continuous piece of yarn so there aren't a bunch of ends to tie in or knots to deal with.

30 Minute Crochet Baby Bonnet

Supplies

  • Approx 2 ounces (roughly 100 yards) worsted weight yarn
  • J (6 mm) crochet hook (K if you crochet tightly)
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors

 

 

Back of Bonnet

Remember the entire bonnet is worked continuously.  Do NOT finish off after each section.

 

Begin

Chain 3, Join with slip stitch in back loop of first chain to form circle.

 

Round 1: Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet), double crochet through circle 11 times, join with slip stitch through round 1 beginning chain 3. Do not turn. (Total 12 double crochet)

 

Round 2: Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet), 2 double crochet in each double crochet around, join with slip stitch through back loop of round 2 beginning chain 3. (This creates 24 double crochet) Do not turn.

 

Round 3: Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet), 2 double crochet in each double crochet around, join with slip stitch through back loop of round 3 beginning chain 3. (This creates 48 double crochet) Do not turn.

 

Body of Bonnet

Round 4: Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet), double crochet in back loop of next 38 double crochet. This leaves 9 stitches unworked. Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet of next round), turn.

 

Round 5: Double crochet in back loop of each double crochet of round 4. Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet of next round), turn.

 

Round 6: Double crochet in back loop of each double crochet of round 4. Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet of next round), turn.

Ties and Edging

First Tie:  Chain 16, single crochet in 2nd chain from hook. Single crochet in next 15 chain. Turn. Join with slip stitch through both loops of 2nd double crochet on round 8 to connect tie to bonnet. Do not turn.

 

Edging:   Chain 5, then connect chain to bonnet with slip stitch through both loops of 3rd double crochet from last slip stitch on round 8. Repeat until only one double crochet of round 8 is left unworked. This creates the loops across the front edge of the bonnet.  Do not turn.

It fits newborn. If you use a slightly thicker yarn or a larger hook you can easily increase the size though.
