Crochet Newborn Baby Beanie with Shell Edging - FREE Pattern - Great Baby Shower Gift!

In a few other posts I have mentioned that a co-worker of mine is having a little girl soon. I have taken it upon myself to make up some cute little girl items for her to enjoy on her new little princess. 

This morning I worked up three hats with one ball of yarn (and still have plenty of yarn left!). This is one of three (for now) hat patterns I will be sharing!

You will notice that this pattern looks A LOT like my Basic Baby Beanie pattern and that is because I made a small adjustment to add the shell edge.

You may also notice this hat pattern from my Pretty Purple Crochet Set post. I simply changed up the yarn choice and colors, and added a ruffle flower.

   - Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Deborah Norville's Everyday Soft in Baby Pink
**This yarn is one of my favorites to work with. It is very soft, has some stretch to it but still holds it's form and is 100% acrylic. All of these qualities are great for baby items as per guidelines I have received from the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women and Babies. PLUS! It's an anti-pilling yarn which means it will hold up better from wear and being washed!
   - H8/5mm Hook
   - Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Time Spent:
   I was able to finish this hat in half an hour.

   Newborn Size. Crown is 4.25" in diameter to equal a hat size of almost 13.5", and it measures 4.75" in length. 

   CH - Chain
   ss - Slip Stitch
   ST - Stitch
   DC - Double Crochet
   ea - each
   SC - Single Crochet

Fasten Off and Weave in Ends.
*Note: It is best to weave your work in and out in a zig zag kind of motion for baby hats, as recommended by the hospital.
