I'm thinking I'd like to find a very quick, very easy pattern for a newborn hat so that when my little guy is born (in 38 days or so!!!) I have a hat already made for him (let the hospital keep theirs!).

Any recommendations on a boyish pattern that's easy? Recommended baby yarns (if possible from a DIYer)?

I love the umbilical cord hat in Sn'B. I've knit several.
I've also done the cupcake hat from ChileConYarne (just google it) for a boy before, too. They've got a viking hat I've yet to tackle.

I knit all baby items in cotton. It washes, its soft, and comes in a kazillion colors. I wish I could recommend someone spinning in cotton, but I haven't come across that just yet.

The umbilical cord hat rocks!  I also like these... in fact I will be making a couple this week:

I really like the Mission Falls 1824 hat from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.  1824 comes in so many colors, it's not too hard to find one for a boy.  Plus, with slightly bigger yarn, the project goes faster Smiley

I don't have picture of any I've made but here is one from someone else:

I second the Cabled baby hat on heyjulie's blog.  It's an easy pattern to follow, and looks great when knit up. 

Most were made with soft acrylic, and one was made with Knitpicks Shine worsted (the orangy yellow one) and it took less than one skein!

Oh, those cable hats are really pretty! Do you think there's a way to modify them to a bigger size?

I THINK on the 5 cable hat you can add on in increments of 14 stitches... because it looks like the cable pattern is 14 stitches each.  Anyone have any input?

On the 10 cable hat I am stymied... it looks like 6 or 8 stitches per cable.

I really like Grumperina's Odessa hat, units of 10 stitches if memory serves me correctly. Without beads of course for a baby boy.

Since you alternate cables on rows, you'd probably want to increase 16 stitches at a time.  It looks like 8 stitches per cable, but to have a full pattern repeat you'd have to do two sets of 8.  If that makes any sense, I hope it does.

I've thought of making the hat in a larger size.  My sister in law wants one for herself in the green color, so I might just have to play with it and find out!
