This is such a cute hat pattern! I’m sure I know many little girls I could knit this up for.
Taking inspiration from the five hour sweater I wrote about before, here is my pattern for a matching hat. It is quite easy to make, only uses a little yarn and knits up very quickly. This pattern is to fit a baby 3-6 months old. The pattern to fit a newborn baby can be found here .
Use 4.5mm / US 7 knitting needles and 4ply yarn
Gauge -20 stitches and 24 rows =4″ over stockinette stitch
K2TOG- KNIT TWO STITCHES TOGETHER
P2TOG- PURL TWO STITCHES TOGETHER
Cast on 73 stitches
R3-K2TOG, YO, UNTIL 3 STITCHES REMAIN, K2TOG, K1 (72 STITCHES)
R7-K2TOG (36 STITCHES)
R8-k1, INSERT NEEDLE INTO THE DIAGONAL (71 STITCHES)
R11-K2TOG UNTIL LAST STITCH, K1
R12-K1, INSERT NEEDLE INTO DIAGONAL (71 STITCHES)
