Step-by-Step Guide to Crocheting a Baby Bonnet

Crochet materials including hook, yarn, stitch marker, and yarn needle
Gather Your Materials
You will need a crochet hook suitable for the yarn you are using, baby-friendly yarn, a stitch marker, and a yarn needle. Choose a soft, washable yarn in a color that you love.
Magic ring with six single crochets and a stitch marker
Start the Crown
Begin by creating a magic ring, then crochet six single crochets into the ring. Place a stitch marker in the first stitch to mark the beginning of your round.
Expanded crown with increased stitches
Expand the Crown
For the second round, make two single crochets in each stitch around. Repeat this process, increasing the number of single crochets between increases each round, until the crown is the right size.
Crocheted sides of the bonnet
Create the Sides
Once the crown is the right size, continue crocheting without increasing to create the sides of the bonnet. Keep crocheting until the bonnet is the desired depth.
Finished bonnet with two ties
Add the Ties
Finally, create two chains of about 30 stitches each at the corners of the bonnet to serve as ties. Secure and cut the yarn, then use the yarn needle to weave in the ends.
