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!

I'm not 100% sure, but I think you could just knit this flat, back and forth on 2 needles, following the decreases, and just sew a seam, you would have to work in garter stitch (k 1 row, P 1 row, to make it the same on the outside. I just made the pattern up...
you could try a small circular needle....
I'll let you know if I see and 2 needles patterns!

um, actually garter stitch is knitting every row so if you wanted to knit a hat flat like this you would need to use stockinette (k 1 row P 1 row)

Mommymac- I love your little hat. I think red is such a great choice. Pink and blue (and even green and yellow are so common. It's nice to see babies in non traditional colors. I also think the removable bow is a nice touch.

Actually now that I think about it, it is knit in the round so it is jsut straight knitting! I'm starting to confuse myself...

kay, I just knit a hat with circs. and I'm no longer afraid of DPN's,  Grin so I'm gonna try this hat. but I do have a question, about these 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)"

couldn't I just knit these two if I didn't want the holes?

Yes, if you don't want the holes, you just knit straight up until you begin decreasing! It's very simple Smiley

A tip about DPN, when you get to the next needle, I always knit the first stitch, then pull the yarn tight before I knit the next stitch. It makes it so there is not space in the rows where the needles change... hope that's  not confusing!
