If you are on a scout for a baby ribbed hat that can be easily adjusted for any size, then this pattern is for you. I have included the formula on how to increase or decrease the size of the ribbed hat to get the right fit for your baby. If you are in doubt regarding the calculations, please leave a comment and I’d be happy to help you with it. Ribbed hats, in general, are fast to make, and this one is no exception to the rule. You can finish the project in one evening, including the yarn poms. Don’t forget to use a baby yarn and let’s get started!

Crochet ribbed baby hat size and calculations:
Baby: 40 – 42 cm.
Hat’s height – 14 + 5 (brim) = 19 cm
Gauge: 20 sts – 4 inches (10 cm) or 1 cm = 2 sts
The size can be easily adjusted using next calculations:
19 cm * 2 sts= 38 sts
Head circumference: 40 cm. To get the finished hat size measurement, subtract 2-3 cm – 38 cm.
Common abbreviations of crochet stitches:

sl st – slip stitch
