DIY: Crochet Toddler Turban with Flower and Free Pattern

Crochet Toddler Turban with Flower

I made this little crochet toddler turban for my friend’s one-year-old daughter when we visit them in Montreal this weekend. However, another friend’s almost-two-year-old daughter visited us last weekend and modeled it for photos.  I made the hat a bit bigger so that we can be sure that it will eventually fit her – better too big than too small!

Kids are messy and get dirty easily, so I didn’t want to burden my friend with kid clothes that had to be handwashed. This hat can be thrown in the wash (with warm water) and then line-dried. This hat is about 19″ in circumference and  7.5″ tall. The cotton-merino blend gives the hat some structure while making it multi-season hat.

Cut a piece of yarn about 12” long and locate the center of the hat (opposite from the ‘seam’). Thread the yarn between two stitches on all the hdc rows and through one of the slip stitches on the last row. Gather the rows together and tie a knot. Weave in ends.

To adorn the crochet toddler turban with a crochet flower, I made the two flower rounds of this pattern in a leftover yarn from the toddler earflap hat I made for my friend’s older son. Then, I added a touch of green with crochet leaves, again using some leftover yarn from the other hat. I used this pattern to make two leaves out of green Garnstudio Drops cotton/merino yarn.

Once the flowers and leaves were done, I sewed them to the hat, which is ready to go to Montreal!
