My sister is having baby this month so I decided to knit her a little hat since she lives in Finland and it will be cold when the baby arrives.
I'm not a big fan of baby colours so I decided to make it red, because she doesn't know if the baby is a boy or a girl. The ribbon is removable. I am knitting a onsie to go with it.
I didn't use a pattern I just knit it up quickly, this is what I did:
It is knit on size 5 DPN.
it is chunky weight cotton yarn.
CO 54 sts, divide between 3 needles.
K 4 rows.
Row 5 - *K5, slip 1, K1, slip 1* repeat to end of row
Row 6 - K3, CO2 *K 5, CO2* repeat to end of row (Knit the CO sts)
Row 7 - K all sts.
Knit 12 rows even.
Row 19 - *K8, K2tog*Repeat to end of row
Row 20 - K all sts
Row 21 - *K7, K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 22 - K all sts
Row 23 - *K6, K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 24 - K all sts
Row 25 - *K5, K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 26 - K all sts
Row 27 - *K4, K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row 28- *K3, K2tog* repeat to end of row
Row29 - *K2, K2tog* repeat to end of row
row 30 - *K1, K2tog* repeat to end.
Draw yarn through all sts and fasten.
Thread ribbon through holes (for a girl) leave empty (for a boy)
The bear is modeling the hat since the baby isn't here yet!
