Otava Baby Sprite Hat Pattern


I promised you the baby version, and here it is! Ain't she sweet? The wee point to the hat stands up quite well. I don't have any models handy, so you'll have to whip one up and see for yourself.


Otava Baby Sprite Hat Pattern

This pattern was developed for a baby using a 4mm (G/6) hook and 2 colours of Rowan pure wool dk 50g/125m. I used less than 1 ball of each colour for this hat.

Special stitch instructions:
A long sc happens when you insert your hook into the space below the one you would normally use when beginning a stitch. Here's a good YouTube tutorial.

With colour 1 (I like to start and end with the darkest colour):

Rnd 1: Chain 2. 6 sc in second loop from hook. Join to first sc with a slip stitch.
Rnd 2: Ch 2. (This does not count as an hdc.) 1 hdc in each sc around. Join to first hdc. Always join at the end of each round. (6 hdc)
Rnd 3: Ch 2. 1 hdc, 2 hdc in each hdc around. (9 hdc)

At this point, you can either continue with colour 1 (for a solid hat) or switch to colour 2 (for a striped hat). Because my stripes are narrow, I’m not cutting my yarn. I’m just pulling in a loop of colour 2. Later I’ll drop that yarn and pick up the hanging colour 1 yarn. Make sure that as you continue to crochet with your new colour, you leave the old colour hanging to the back (or inside) of your work. If you prefer another method of switching colours, that should work fine too.
