Crochet Baby Hat and Diaper Cover – Cute Fox

by Doroteja

Hello, my lovely crocheters and happy Monday to all of you!

Have you ever been sucked into Pinterest vortex and could not stop liking and repinning a ton of cute baby photos, babies dressed like cute animals, fisherman, cowboy or even Batman? You have to admit, I know you did! 🙂

I was searching over the internet for the past few days to find some interesting ideas to create a pattern for baby photography, shorter baby props. I came across to so many great ideas and the competition for the winning idea in my head was very tough. I chose the idea for the first pattern and wrote down the rest into my personal notebook where you can find the pieces of Croby Patterns future. Believe me, this notebook is priceless. 🙂

Here is my first pattern for baby props. It’s a pattern for crochet baby hat and diaper cover – Cute Fox. If you would like to add a pair of booties to these cute baby outfit, you should definitely try the Green Zebra or the Blue Whale  FREE pattern for crochet baby booties that you can find here on my blog.

Because I am always happy to hear what you would like to see on my blog, please send me an email with your idea on [email protected]  You have to understand, that I cannot promise I can please all of your requests, but some of them I definitely can.

Please do not post pictures with your propositions on my Facebook page. The content, not related to Croby Patterns will be deleted. With all these said let’s start with the pattern.

Enjoy the pattern and have a wonderful day!

With love, Doroteja

Hi,
I love doing and learning this new pattern. Im a bit confused on the tail, it says round 12-16, then goes to round 13. Should I do 12-16 40sts and assume where it says round 13 that it really means 17, and so on?
Thank you for sharing with us!

I absolutely love this pattern!

I am nearly finished – just need to add the buttons. What size buttons did you use?

The diaper cover looks about small to me… But maybe I just imagine my baby will have a big butt 🙂

I’m having trouble with the hat. I’m new to crocheting so bear with me. 🙂 Starting on line 8 of the hat you say : Ch 1. Repeat (hdc into next 8 sts, join next two sts with hdc2tog) 5 times. Join the round with ss into the first stitch of the round. And that is supposed to lower the count to 45 stitches. The first time I tried, my hat closed too soon and I lost like 15 stitches. I did the 8 hdc then the 5 stitches with them together, went back to the 8 hdc then back to the 5 together. I came up with something like 25 or 30 stitches. I then tore my hat apart and started over and when I got to that row I did the first 8 then the 5 together then went back and did the rest of the full row in hdc in each stitch, I came up with the 45 stitches, but then my hat came out lopsided. Where did I go wrong? Also I don’t understand what the repeat means.

Reply
Doroteja May 11, 2016 - 19:22

Hi Kathy
At the beginning of the round 8 you have to have 50 sts in total. Ch 1. Repeat (1 hdc into next 8, hdc2tog) 5 times. Just repeat what is in () 5 times and and the round with a ss. At the end of the round 8 you have to have 45 sts in total. Why? Because there is five hdc2tog stitches in that round. Everything else are normal hdc sts. Hope it helps 🙂

Thank you for sharing this pattern! It was so easy to follow! What type of yarn and size hook do you think to I used for a 3 yr old on the hat part? I’m thinking this will be a Halloween costume for my youngest.

Reply
Doroteja June 12, 2016 - 13:25

Hi Bree,
I would use at least 5.5 mm or 6 mm crochet hook and thicker yarn. It’s hard to say since I have never try to do it with a different yarn or hook. 🙂

Ashleigh June 22, 2016 - 15:16

I am fairly new to crochet but is it correct that the bottom of the beanie has no stretch (due to the chain being at the base)?

Reply
Doroteja June 22, 2016 - 23:05

Hi Ashleigh
You can do it however you want. 🙂 You can even turn around the pattern and start on the top.
Magic ring. 10 hdc into the MR. Join with ss. Next round would be 2 hdc into each stitch all the way around. Ss. Next one would be repeat (hdc 1, 2hdc) 10 times. Ss. And so on. 🙂
Happy crocheting!

Hi Doroteja,

Thank you for sharing this pattern, it is really cute. I’m planning to crochet it to my son who will born in August. I’m quite new to crocheting so I’m a bit afraid that altough using the proper needle and yarn sizes the finished costume won’t fit my baby. Could you please help me out by sharing the width and height of the beanie and the diaper cover as well?

Thank you very much,
Cheers,
Edit

Hi! I am so sorry for my late answer. The final size of the diaper cover should be around 36 cm around the waist and 12.5 cm in length. The hat should be around 30 cm in circumference. 🙂 Happy crocheting! 🙂

I love to crochet but I do not sit in front of my computer to do it. I don’t have another whatever or a “smart phone” Wanted to print pattern. At 80 , I guess I don’t use this one.

Hi. I wonder what’s the sie of the diper cover? I love your patterns and I wanted to make a diper cover for a 6 month old baby. Would your pattern fit? Thank you.

It’s in the newborn size. You can try with a larger crochet hook and thicker yarn to make it a size or two bigger. 🙂

Hi, I’m trying to make the diaper cover, but I think there is a mistake on row 4: you say “skip 11 sts and then start working in the 12th (total 32 sts) and this leaves me with 13 unworked sts in the end, so it’s not centered. I believe it should be corrected so that you have 12 unworked sts each side. (56 – 32 = 24 / 2 = 12

Hi, Barbara!
It’s a typo. After row 3 you cut the yarn and fasten off. The next row, so row 4 starts in st 13. And you end 12 sts “before the end” of the row. That will create a flap on each side of the diaper cover that will later be attached to the buttons on the front.

I’m making this for my 3 week old Grandson,
Im a little confused about the way the pattern is written for the diaper cover. example :you say to hdc 26 and then hdc2together the last two stitches wouldn’t that be instead, hdc the next 24 sts then hdc2together the last 2 are actually ending as 25 sts not 26?

Tanks in advance for your help.

I would try with a larger crochet hook and a bit thicker yarn. 🙂 That would be the easiest way before we start adding additional sts to the pattern. 🙂

Hi Doroteja
Thank you for sharing the pattern – my daughter in law who is expecting a baby soon wants me to make it for her and I can’t wait to start but I am a bit confused about how much yarn to buy. Can you clarify how much I need in each colour please?

Hi! I finished 2 balls of orange and 1 ball of white. Each ball was 50 grams and 115 m. 🙂

Hi….how many skeins of each yarn? The yarn I found is just under 5oz. Is the quoted 150g the total amount for the entire project?

Thank you
Denise

Do you think this could be converted to a wolf? How would you do that?

Doroteja August 5, 2018 - 23:07

Yes! I would make both in a gray and white combination. 🙂

Hi Doroteja! I love this pattern and I just finished it for my great grandson but I want to give you a “heads up”. On the very last row of the diaper cover, row 25, you follow with {at the end of row 24 end off) It should be end off at the end of row 25, right? Some might get confused was my thought.
Thank you so much for sharing this pattern!

Such a sweet pattern. I made it up in several hour for my grandson to be and couldn’t be more excited. Many thanks.

Just finished my little fox pattern. It looks amazing! Was wondering about stuffing the tail with something to make it stand up. What would you recommend to use that could be washed and bounce back into shape?

Reply
Doroteja February 19, 2019 - 09:50

I would probably use a soft filling for toys. 🙂

I tried to make the Diaper cover with Dk yarn and 4 mm hook, But i dont know where it went wrong that it came ouy to be very small, the length is hardly 6.5 inches. It wont even fit a newborn. Can you suggest what could have gone wrong please.

Doroteja March 25, 2019 - 12:42

It’s hard to say. It can be so many things; yarn, gauge… I would try to use a larger crochet hook and a bit thicker yarn next time. 🙂
