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

    • bagleybiker says:

      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.

  4. Angelica says:

    Hello! This hat is extremely adorable. Do you happen to have this pattern in a bigger size for a 16 year old?

    • bagleybiker says:

      I’ll send you the adult pattern. For a teen, try starting with 7 sc in round one or crochet the adult directions with a size H hook. I would love to see the finished projects!

      • Hello again I was wondering If there is any way you can send me that email again. I think I accidently deleted it!! Want to make the adult hat this week. Sorry for the inconvenience! Thanks so much!!!

    Thanks Again Ashley @ Thereisnoplacelikehomemade (dot) blogspot (dot) com

    • bagleybiker says:

      There’s a pattern available for this hat in all sizes. It also includes goggles and scarves. That’s for sale in the store.

  9. Jill Fassett says:

    Hi! I LOVE this hat, I’ve seen others but this one has a retro look that is so cute. Would it be possible to get this in a size for a 2-year-old (19″ head circumference)?

  10. Janet Meyer says:

    I saw your pattern for this cute aviator hat on 2 different websites for the same hat. Row 14 says attach tan to the first stitch of the brim on this website. The other website Yarnovations.com says Row 13 attach tan yarn for the brim. That throws off the rest of the rows on both patterns. Which website is the correct pattern. I printed out both of them. Thank you.

    • Janet Meyer says:

      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

  11. susan wall says:

    Hi. If it is possible, could you please email me the pattern for both adults and toddlers. I love this pattern. Thank you.

  12. I love the hat, thanks for sharing. I made this hat with a group of friends, who became confused right away. Have you ever thought of re-writing your instructions? Even in your comments above, I’ve notice a lot more are a little confused.

  13. Hello I just love this hat and was hoping that you had the pattern in size 3 to 6 months I would like to make it as a gift for twin boys if you do I would very much appreciate it if you could e-mail it to me thank for sharing this with all of us

  14. Hi, I just found your pattern and was attempting to make it for this weekend. However line 9 where it says 5 dc(6) could you explain this too me. Is that 5dc in one stitch 6 times? Or in total 30 dc( as in what we basically did up to this point)
    I’m hoping you still monitor this as id really like to finish this cute hat.
    Thanks
    Jen
