New Original Pattern - Bordering on Adorable!

Bordering on Adorable Cap


This cute and easy-to-make bordered cap will be perfect for those adorable newborns.


What you’ll need:

2 colors of baby-weight yarn (I didn’t measure how much I used, but small qtys of both)

E hook (3.5mm)


With main color, chain 5 and join with a slip stitch to make a ring.


Row 1 – Chain 3 (now and throughout this counts as your first DC). 11 DC in ring (12 DC total). Join w/ slip stitch.


Row 2 - Chain 3. DC in same stitch as joining. 2 DC in each stitch around (24 DC total). Join w/ slip stitch


Row 3 – Chain 3. DC in same stitch as joining. DC in next stitch. * 2 DC in next stitch, 1 DC in next stitch* repeat ** around. (36 DC total). Join w/ slip stitch


Row 4 – Chain 3. Dc in same stitch as joining. DC in next 2 stitches. * 2 DC in next stitch, 1 DC each in next 2 stitches* repeat ** around (48 DC total). Join w/ slip stitch


Row 5 – Chain 3. DC in same stitch as joining. DC in next 3 stitches. * 2 dc in next stitch, 1 DC each in next 3 stitches* repeat ** around (60 DC total). Join w/ slip stitch in back loop.


Row 6 – Chain 3. Working in back loop only for this round, DC in each stitch around. (60 DC total). Join w/ slip stitch (though both loops).


Rows 7-10 – Chain 3. DC in each stitch around. (60 DC total). Join w/ slip stitch in back loop only.


Row 11 – Chain 3. Working in back loop only for this round, DC in each stitch around (60 DC total). Join w/ slip stitch (through both loops). End off main color.


Border design:

With contrast color, attach yarn to the unused front loop from row 10 (you will work this border over the base color in row 11). Chain 1. working in unused front loop only, sc in each stitch around. (60 SC). Join w/ slip stitch. End off yarn. Pull tail through to inside of cap, weave it securely and cut any remaining tail.


The opening of this cap is about 14 inches. You can easily adjust the cap size up or down by changing your hook size.

Would like to make the Bordering on Adorable cap. Have been unable to print the pattern. What gives?

Not sure why you can't print it. Try copying it into word and then printing.

Made one. Thank you for the very simple pattern. Trying different ones to give the hats to a local pregnancy center. I really like the border; it is simple and can be changed each time to make a hat for any baby. Endless combinations. Thanks again. Stachia
