Baby Hat Pattern

Cindys baby hat flat, originally uploaded by YarnDork.

I apologize ahead of time if there are any errors. This is only a pattern from my notes, and I sort of made this up as I went along. If you have any problems, please contact me and I will help. This size will fit a newborn, or a small stuffed soccer ball. Here’s the pattern…

I used a pretty small ball of leftover Bernat Cottontots, about the size of my 5 year old’s fist. I used size 6 DPN’s.

Cast on 4 st and work in I-cord for 20 rows, or longer if you want a longer top knot. On next row, redistribute the st to allow for working in the round.
Round 21 – K f&b of each st around, total of 8 st.
R 22 and all even rounds up to R36 – K around
R 23 – K f&b of each st around, 16 st total
R 25 – *K1, Kf&b, repeat from * around, 24 st total
R 27 – *K2, Kf&b, repeat from * around, 32 st total
R 29 – *K3, Kf&b, repeat from * around, 40 st total
R 31 – *K4, Kf&b, repeat from * around. 48 st total
R 33 – *K5, Kf&b, repeat from * around, 56 st total
R 35 – *K6, Kf&b, repeat from * around, 64 st total
R 37 – K2, P2 around
Repeat last row for a total of 20 rows. Bind off loosely or, if desired, like the one in the picture, work a few rows of stockinette for a rolled hem. Then bind off loosely. Weave in ends and tie I-cord in a little top knot.

This hat can easily be sized up or down by working more or fewer increase rows, and by making the ribbing portion longer.

    Thanks so much for the pattern, this is adorable!!! I’m bookmarking you, too! By the way, I finally went to the North Shore last week and spotted “The Wishing Well.” Funny, I just never noticed it before. I laughed because it takes somebody visiting to tell me what’s going on on my own island. You need to come back soon and go to the South side for me–I haven’t been there in a year or so. Someday, let me know what it looks like now, eh?
