When you search for baby hat patterns, you inevitably find adorable little caps perfectly suited for the dead of winter. But what about all the babes born in warm months — or warm climates? Don’t they deserve something cute to cover those floppy baby ears, too? Of course they do — and these patterns will help you make sure they have their fair share of toppings! 1. Vine Lace Baby Hat This adorable baby hat pattern is light, delicate, and works perfectly in any color, from black to pink. You can get as creative as you want with the pattern and work in different stripes, colors, and patterns — it will maintain its classy and adorable look no matter what. 2. Strawberry cap This baby hat knitting pattern recommends using Merino wool, but it’s such a summery pattern it’ll lend itself just as well to a cotton yarn. I don’t know what it is about babies wearing food as clothing, but this is just one of the cutest things you’ll ever see. 3. Lace Baby Bonnet If you love vintage knitting, you’ll love this adorable baby hat pattern. It’s not so much vintage itself, but the delicate lace bonnet sure looks like something you would have plopped on a Victorian infant. It’s easy to make, and it stands out from a crowd, and any baby (and its Mom!) would be glad to have it. 4. Baby Sunhat Ever noticed that baby hats patterns rarely include sunhats? They all fit snugly, keep baby warm, and do absolutely nothing to protect from the harsh rays of the sun. This hat, fortunately, breaks the pattern, creating a very cute wide brimmed hat that will save baby’s delicate skin and eyes the trouble of an early sunburn. 5. Baby Hat with Swirl On Top This isn’t strictly a summer pattern — it would work in any color for any season, and it comes with matching booties besides. It probably would be a bit too warm for super hot summer climates, but it’s absolutely perfect for spring and those windy summer days where, even when it’s warm, it seems cold. Spring and summer babies don’t need to despair — these baby hat patterns will satisfy even the fussiest new mom.
