This is an easy pattern. Circles are easy to crochet in general in simple dc, sc, etc.: just keep increasing groupings one more stitch farther apart for each and every new row and the circle should lay flat even if you keep going like that for forever.
Babies will look cute and stay warm and cozy with this Newborn Caterpillar Hat & Cocoon. Inspired by the popular children's book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, this easy crochet pattern is definitely one of the cutest crochet baby patterns ever.
