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):

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.

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

      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.
