Crochet: Best Baby Cloche in Expanded Sizes

There are so many things I want to be working on right now that it's hard to focus and get anything done! I have nesting things in the works but am a bit distracted by this cute little cloche. The reaction to the pattern and tutorial has been so much fun, and there were several comments about additional sizes, so I wanted to work it out...

So now the pattern is updated at the link below with sizes 0-3 and 6-12, along with the original 3-6 months. In addition to changing the cloche sizes I added a pattern for a small sized (5-petal) flower, which is pictured above on a 0-3 month hat. I like the flower not to be so overwhelming on a newborn but the original 7-petal flower is of course an option for those who like a more oversized adornment.

You can download the updated pattern here:

And link to the original tutorial here (note it is for the 3-6 month size but a good reference for all...).
Working out these other sizes and double checking the original had me second guessing but I've stuck with the original proportions. The 3-6 month size worked great on my baby when she was that age and I referenced some other baby hat patterns to see how they increased. That said, if you think your cloche looks a bit squatty and would like a taller hat, you can easily add an extra "straight" row (no increases or decreases). I have played with a couple yarns and different yarns certainly net different results.

These have been so much fun that I'm working on larger sizes. I hope to post another pattern soon!

Thank you! Thank you! I love this pattern. The hats are just perfectly shaped. I'm sort of addicted to making them. You've got a great blog. I'll keep coming back for more ideas.

Thank you so much for adding the additional sizes! I too have made your 3-6 mo size and was hoping for a smaller one for my baby coming in November. I don't want to add to your pile of things to do, but I would absolutly LOVE the pattern to those adorable mary jane booties.

Thanks for the comments! I do plan to figure out the mary jane bootie pattern. I made these a few years ago by altering another pattern and I plan to make up some white ones and doument what I do. Hopefully I can get to that in the next few weeks!

just made the baby clotche for a baby gift. I love it. Wish I had a little one here to try it on. Thanks so much for the tutorial. I am fairly new at crochet and it helped to have step by step instructions
