Baby Aviator Hat

With this pattern, your little one will be flying high in no time! This is an adorable and quick hat to crochet, especially since it is crocheted with a large hook and with two strands of yarn at the same time. It could also be crocheted using bulky yarn instead. I designed this pattern so I could take some more fun hats to the Army hospital in town.

  1. I LOVE this!!!
    Do you have this pattern in a bigger size — like for 6-12 month olds?

    Thanks!
    Autumn

      Thank you, Autumn. To make a slightly larger hat, do 8 sc in round 1 instead of 6. Also in row 12, skip 14 stitches instead of 9. You may also want to do more rounds like 6-8 to make it longer. Otherwise, it’s basically the same. I hope this helps! I’d love to see a picture when you finish.

  2. Would it work if I used a K hook? And did you by any chance use two strands of yarn bc its looks thicker? Thanks!

    • bagleybiker says:

      A size K hook should work fine for the hat. I actually used two strands of yarn at the same time because the hat works up faster! It does result in a thicker hat. You can also use one strand of bulky yarn instead. If you use only one strand of regular medium worsted weight yarn, you would probably need more stitches and rounds.

  3. Hi, I’m relativily new to reading crochet patterns and have a question, on round 4 …”Rnd 4: Ch 3, *dc inc, 2 dc* five times, dc inc, dc. Join with a sl st. (24)”

    Is my translation here accurate? Chain 3, 2 double crochets in same stitch, 2 double crochets repeated 5 times (all in separate stitches), 2 double crochets in same stitch, 1 double crochet, join with sl st.

    I add it up and it doesn’t come to 24 , I am mostly having difficulty interpreting what the “2 dc* five times” means. Thanks. This hat is adorable and I’m really wanting to get it right!

    • bagleybiker says:

      Thanks for your question. Here’s how it works out:
      Ch 3 = 1
      Dc inc, 2 dc = 4
      *Dc inc, 2 dc* five times = 4×5 = 20
      Dc inc = 2
      Dc = 1
      1+20+2+1=24
      Hope this helps. I would love to see a picture of the hat when you finish! Happy crocheting.

    Hi Deborah, I just now found the time to make the aviator hat for newborn. I am stuck on round 14 where it says on the bottom edge of the earflap, sc, 2sc in next st. Does that mean 3 sc in one stitch, or does it mean a sc in one stitch and then 2 sc in another?
    Thank you,
    Janet Meyer
