Cro-Shayley makes a Newborn Cowboy Hat and Boots

Cro-Shayley makes a Baby St. Patrick's Day ChapeauI have yet another friend who is pregnant and is due in April, however, this friend is having a little boy. She is going with a “rustic” themed nursery so I decided to make her a cowboy hat and boots so maybe she could use these for some newborn photos.

After making the St. Patrick’s Day Chapeau in my last blog, I decided to make the hat again but even smaller this time to fit a newborn. I tweeked the pattern a little and like last time, I only used 1 strand of yarn. Also, I used a G6/4mm crochet hook. Here is the revised pattern I used (Corrections have been made in red):

Ch 4; join with slip st in first ch to form ring.
Round 1: Ch 1, 8 sc in ring.
Round 2: Work 2 sc in each st around—16 sc.
Round 3: [Sc in next sts, 2 sc in next st] 8 times—24 sc.
Round 4: [Sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st] 8 times—32 sc.
Round 5: [Sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st] 8 times—40 sc.
Round 6: [Sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st] 8 times—48 sc.
Round 7: [Sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st] 8 times—56 sc.
Round 8: [Sc in next 13 sts, 2 sc in next st] 4 times—60 sc
Round 9: Sc in each st around.
Round 10-16: Repeat Round 9 seven times.
Round 17: [Sc in next 7 sts, sc2tog, sc in next 6 sts, sc2tog] 3 times, sc in next 7 sts, sc2tog—53 sc.
Rounds 18–23: Repeat Round 9.
Round 24: Sc in each st around.
Round 25: Sc in next 12 sts, 2 sc in next, sc in next 13 st, 2 sc in next, [Sc in next 12 sts, 2 sc in next] 2 times—57 sc.
Round 26: Sc in next 8 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 8 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 10 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 8 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 8 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc in next st—63 sc
Round 27: Repeat Round 9.
Round 28: [Dc in next 6 sts, 2 dc in next st] 9 times—72 sc
Round 29: Repeat Round 9. Fasten off.Here is a pic of the finished cowboy hat:

For the cowboy boots, I used Red Heart’s WR1759 Baby Boots pattern but left off the Tie. I switched colors at Round 3. I repeated Round 8 twice and switched back to the color I started with after that for Rounds 10 and 11.

I crocheted a star applique to sew onto the side of the boots.

5 Pointed Star Steps:
Ch 2, 10 sc in 2nd ch from hook; join with a sl st in first sc.
* Ch 3, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch. skip next sc on Rnd 1, sl st in next sc; rep from * around.
Finish off and sew onto the side of the boot.


Here is a picture of the finished Cowboy Hat and Boots. I can’t wait to see my little friend in these!

    I was wondering how this could be adapted to kids size and adults.

      Dear Amanda, Thank you for your question! Cro-Shayley adapted our St. Patrick’s Day Chapeau to be baby sized and turned it into a cowboy hat; it is already sized for an adult. We have a similar hat designed for a child, the Mad Willy Hat, that could be made shorter. The cowboy boots were based off of a baby boot pattern we have with stars added. Our closest pattern is the Hi-Top Slipper Socks, which could be made in one color with the laces omitted and a star added. You should be able to find patterns for tall, boot-style slippers for kids and adults elsewhere online. You will probably be able to find child and adult sized cowboy hat patterns as well, so you can follow a pattern and not have to adapt one.

    I am currently on Round 17 of the hat and it says (sc next 6, sc2tog)x8. Is that right? When I get to the last set, I only have 4 stitches left..which is not enough to do the set. Did I miss some stitches somewhere? Thank you for your help!! :)

      I’ve made this pattern a few times and love the outcome. The pattern is easy to follow and the booties cute and a button.

    What size crochet hook do I use on the hat?

    My daughter printed out the directions but cut off the crochet size hook.

    Thank you for the pattern.

    • redheart

      Hi Donna, Thank you for your question. The hook size is a 4mm/US G-6.
