Sunday is often my day to relax, or do things as I want. This past Sunday I spent knitting this little pink baby hat while I watched TV.
The basic FREE pattern I followed can be found here: FeltMagnet / How to knit basic baby hat.
For my pink hat I cast on 80 using the long-tail cast on.
When I switched to the darker color (Rose Granite, Purl Soho’s Worsted Twist) I pulled the light pink along the front which made a “line”. I also added a few “dots” of rose granite near the top. Should have done that further down, but oh well.
Size 6 circular and DPN’s. I switched to DPN’s at round 5 at the top. (K4, K2tog row)
Finished size is approx. 17 inches around and 6.5 inches tall. I don’t have a baby to try it on so I used an acorn squash as the “head”.
Another Basic Hat Pattern at Ravelry
Basic Baby Hat at Mama’s Stitchery Projects also has a baby hat pattern. She says to use a 40 inch circular needle, but that is for “magic loop” knitting. I have no idea what that is, so I would use a 16″ circular needle.
