A friend of mine just had a baby boy and I wanted to send something to her. I found this super cute baby cowboy hat pattern** that I just HAD to make. I sized it down to fit a 6 mo old by reducing the number of starting chains and taking out some of the repeat rows. I added a crab-stitch border around the brim in red and a multi-colored chain for a “rope” tie. I am planning on making some cowboy booties to go along, and sew some burp cloths and a blanket to match!

**EDIT: I have removed the link to the baby cowboy hat pattern. It is an archived site. It has been explained to me that the original author removed her post for some reason, which means she doesn't want the pattern floating around everywhere! It can still be found on Ravelry, but I don't want to post it here if the author is not willing to post it herself!


  1. It looks great! Thanks for sharing. The pictures look great.

  2. So cute! I was going to make these . . . http://hometown.aol.com/fourleafcl1064/page69.html

    now I will need to make the hat too!

  3. Very cute hat. I would like to make one too.

    I followed the link you gave but it does not seem to be working. Do you think you could send me the pattern on email?


  4. If the link doesn't work, try clicking it again. If it doesn't work again, then try later! This site is very strange, some times I click the link and it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'd love to post the pattern or send it along, but the author specifically asks for it only to be linked to. I'm going to try to do some research into it to see if the author will allow me to host it (if I can figure out how to contact them!)

  5. Nice! I've always wanted to make the cowboy hat from Stitch 'n Bitch. I do love the free kid sized version though! I like what you did with the pattern.
    THe link works for me but the pictures just have little red x marks. I'll check back and see if the pictures load later. Thanks for the pattern link!

  6. oh, and the pics don't work! haha forgot that!

  7. Great hat! I think that'll be adorable on a baby! Thanks for the link.

  8. Cute hat!Nice pic too. Thanks for sharing :D

  9. Lovely. Love the colors. Great hat so cute.:)

  10. Hey girl, If you ever get in touch with the author, can you ask her what size child this hat is for. Oh yea, can you also ask her to fix the pix. LOL
    PS. I absolutely love your version, but I am no good at "adjusting" patterns. LOL
