Dora Baby Hat and Blanket Set Crochet Patterns by Kristin Omdahl
The flower motif in the center of this blanket is repeated for the beautiful edging in a simple join as you go fashion. The motif is modified for the crown of the adorable matching hat. This PDF download pattern includes charts, stitch glossary and symbol library.
What you will need:
- 45 yds (41m) #3 dk weight yarn for hat
- 640 yds (585m) #3 dk weight yarn for blanket
- E/4 (3.5mm) hook for hat
- H/8 (5mm) hook for blanket
- Stitch markers
- Yarn needle
Be So Baby Yarn; 142 yds (130m) per 1.75oz (50g); 100% milk (casein) fiber; color Birthday Cake; 1 ball for hat and 5 balls for blanket.
Note: Be So Baby Yarn is discontinued. Here are some suggested yarn substitutions for a suitable DK weight yarn:
Cotton Bamboo Light Yarn: 60% bamboo / 40% cotton; 153 yds (140m) per 100 gm (3.5oz) ball. It comes in 29 colors. The suggested needle size is 3 – 4 mm (US 4 – US 6). I think the drape of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Baby Yarn. It is labeled a #3 DK weight yarn. This yarn retails for $2.25/ball or $8.99 per 4 balls.
Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo DK Yarn: #3 dk weight 80% bamboo / 20% wool; 104 yds per 50 gm ball; needle size US6. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Baby Yarn. It comes in 13 colors retails for $6.75 per ball.
CotLin: #3 Dk weight 70% Tanguis Cotton, 30% Linen; 123 yds per 50gm skein; suggested needle size US 5 – 7. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Baby Yarn. It comes in 44 colors and retails for $4.99 per skein.
Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo DK; #3 Dk weight 80% bamboo / 20% wool; 104 yds per 50gm ball; Suggested needle size US6. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Baby Yarn. It comes in 12 colors and retails for $6.50 per ball.
For hat, small motif is 3.5 in (8.9cm) in diameter.
For blanket, gauge is not critical, however center motif is 5 in (12.7cm) diameter.
Hat: 11 in (28cm) circumference x 4 in (10cm) tall, to fit a 3-4lb preemie sized baby.
Blanket: 35 in (89cm) square.
