How Do I Crochet A Baseball Cap For a Doll?

This amigurumi doll hat is crocheted from the top of the hat down to the bottom edge of the hat. It is crocheted in a continuous spiral (meaning that we don’t join or turn our work while we crochet).

After we have crocheted the body of the hat, we will crochet the brim of the hat. The brim of the hat is worked back and forth in turned rows.

After completing the brim, we will give our crochet hat a clean trim by slip-stitching around the entire hat. This is a really quick project and it is easy to customize by using your favorite color.

This crochet doll hat pattern was requested by my own little boy who, despite saying he is too old for playing with dolls, has had a lot of fun helping me come up with different ideas for items for our Advent Adam dolls.

Skill Level:

  • Easy


  • U.S. Terminology



Special Stitches and Techniques:

  • Invisible Finish / Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Skip a stitch and place the tapestry needle through the top of the next stitch from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST worked under the back loop of the stitch and pull through to the back of the work.  Weave in the end. Learn how to do this with my invisible finish/join tutorial.

  • Single Crochet (SC) Join: With a slip knot already on the hook, insert hook into the designated stitch. YO and pull up a loop.  YO and pull through both loops on the hook.

Finished Size:

  • Doll is approximately 10.5” tall


  • Clothing: 4 sts across x 6 rows = 1” square


  • These shoes are made to fit my Advent Adam Doll. Gauge is important for ensuring that all of the parts of your doll fit appropriately.  If you don’t plan to match gauge, ensure that you maintain a consistent tension throughout each project.  Using the same yarn line and hook throughout each project can also assist with minimizing gauge/tension changes.

  • For a cleaner SCDEC on pieces worked in continuous rounds, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of each ST rather than under both loops.  This is often referred to as an invisible decrease.  Check out my invisible decrease tutorial on to see it done.

  • For pieces worked in turned rows, use a normal SCDEC stitch instead of the invisible decrease.

  • Color changes are done using the last YO of the previous stitch (except where otherwise indicated).
