My First Pattern : Adya

It has been a while since I wrote on the blog. But I am back with my first pattern. 🙂 I am pretty excited to share with you all ADYA – a textured baby hat pattern crocheted using sport weight yarn.


It features a textured stitch using cross over sc, suitable for an advanced beginner. It can be made for little boys and girls  in suitable colors. The pattern includes instructions for the flower and shares some tips on variations and upsizing the hat.


Adya is a simple crochet pattern for a textured baby hat. The word ‘Adya’ means ‘the first.’ There are many firsts in this pattern. It is simple and interesting enough for an ‘advanced beginner’ – It can be your ‘first advanced project’ if you have just learned to crochet. It is designed for little people to wear in their first year. And, it is the first free pattern from Craft Doodling.  🙂 Yay!
