Crochet Baby Turban Pattern

After first seeing a crocheted baby turban via Pinterest, I just knew I had to make one for Ella Rose. I reviewed several hat patterns, and eventually created one of my own that resulted in a stylish mini turban that is too cute for words.

This hat requires only basic crochet stitches, and works up fairly quickly. It makes for a great baby shower gift, or if you're anything like me, you'll want to make it in about 100 different colors for your own little one.

I'm sharing the pattern in size 0-3 months. If you don't crochet, or are looking for it in other sizes, please check out my Etsy shop,

Worsted weight yarn
Size H crochet hook
Yarn needle

ch (chain)
hdc (half double crochet)
sl st (slip stitch)

ch 3, join with sl st to create ring
Rnd 1- ch 1, 10 hdc in center of ring, join to sl st into first hdc (10 hdc)
Rnd 2- ch 1, 2 hdc in each stitch around, join with sl st into first hdc (20 hdc)
Rnd 3- ch 1, *1 hdc in first st, 2 hdc in next st. Repeat from * around, join with sl st (30 hdc)
Rnd 4- ch 1, *1 hdc in each of first 2 st, 2 hdc in the next. Repeat from * around, join with sl st (40 hdc)
Rnd 5-  ch 1, *1 hdc in each of the first 9 st, 2 hdc in next st. Repeat from * around, join with sl st (44 hdc)
Rnd 6- ch 1, 1 hdc in each st around, through from loop only (44 hdc)
Rnd 7- ch 1, 1 hdc in each st around, through back loop only (44 hdc)
Repeat rounds 6 and 7 each 4 times (4 ribs), for a total of 15 rounds.
Tie off and weave in ends.
Thread yarn needle with approximately 12 inches of yarn, wrap yarn from top of first rib to edge of hat, about 12 times, and pull tight. Tie off and weave in ends.


  1. Love the pattern! What is your gauge?

    1. Thank you Dara! For gauge, I got 4 hdc= 1 inch. The finished hat measures approximately 5 inches in height, and about 13-14 inches in circumference. If you wanted it to be slightly bigger, you could always try a size I hook!

    2. Thanks, that is super helpful since I don't have a newborn around right now! Also, I noticed that if rows 6-7 are repeated four times, there should be a total of 15 rounds, not 13.

    3. I have made some edits, I think the way I wrote it was a little confusing. Hopefully it's correct now, however, I have to admit, chasing a toddler around he having a newborn have made my brain a little foggy.

  2. I have a question. :) If you want to make an adult size what do you do?

    1. Hi Lesley,
      I haven't had time to work out an adult pattern for this hat style, but I found this link on Pinterest:

  3. What an adorable crochet baby turban hat!!! I make hats for two hospitals and I just love this one! Many, many thanks for posting this! :) :)

  4. HI Jessica,
    I am making a baby turban hat and I just want to be sure about round 6.
    Do you mean to work in the front loops only?
    This is such a cute pattern! Thanks!

    1. Lee Ann, I am so sorry if I left you hanging. yes, front loops only. I will edit now. Hope it works out ok for you!

    2. I tried round 6 through both loops but decided to do the front loop instead, after I found out that it looked better overall. Thanks for getting back to me and confirming it with me. This is such a cute pattern! Thank you again! :)

  5. I am loving this pattern thank you 😃
