Shamrock Shake Newborn Hat

Things You’ll Need
  • Size 8 Knitting Circular Needles or Double Pointed Needles
  • Size G Crochet hook
  • Worsted weight yarn in 2 shades of green (I used Loops and Threads Impeccable)
  • Yarn Needle

Techniques You Need to Know
  • Knitting in the round, either by Magic Loop (what I used) or using double pointed needles.
  • Crocheting in the round.

Lets get Started (Hat)
  1. (Using size 8 needles and dark green)Cast on 40 stitches
  2. Work in stockinette stitch for three inches (when working in the round, you just need to knit)
  3. *Knit three stitches, knit two together* repeat across the row
  4. Knit across the row
  5. *Knit two stitches, knit two together* repeat across the row
  6. Knit across the row
  7. *Knit first stitch, knit two together* repeat across the row
  8. *Knit two together* repeat across the row.
  9. Cut a long yarn tail (at least 6 inches) and draw through remaining loops on hook. Pull tight, and draw needle through back of hat, tie a knot, and cut remaining yarn.


  1. (Using size H crochet hook) Single crochet in each loop along the bottom of the hat for two rows.
  2. *Do 3 Half Double Crochet in first stitch, slip stitch in next stitch* Repeat across the row for a scalloped border.

Shamrock Decal
  1. *6 single crochet in magic ring, slip stitch to close, leaving a 6 inch yarn tail* Repeat three times.

  2. Surface crochet or embroider on a little stem for the shamrock, and stitch on the leaves with the yarn tail.
