This simple baby hat is perfect to keep the little ones in your life warm
this winter. It knits up quickly in DK weight yarn, and can easily be adjusted to work with other weights of yarn, or for larger or smaller heads.
Designed by: Anne Martin
US 6 16” circular needle
1 skein DK weight yarn (150 yds or so)
Cast on 80 stitches and join in the round, being careful not to twist. Mark beginning of round.
Work in a Knit 2, Purl 2 rib for 2.5”
Switch to stockinette stitch and knit for another 3”. Hat should measure approximately 5.5” from cast on.
Round 1: Knit 8, K2tog
Round 2 (and every even numbered round): Knit
Round 3: Knit 7, K2tog
Round 5: Knit 6, K2tog
Continue in this manner, knitting one less stitch before the K2tog, until only 8 stitches remain.
Cut yarn and thread through stitches.
Weave in ends.
Gauge is not critical for this hat. If you would like it larger or smaller, use a heavier or lighter weight yarn and appropriate needles. Alternatively, you can add or subtract stitches in multiples of 10.
