Baby hat I knit for a friend's baby, who is due next week.

Disclaimer: this hat was made by modifying this Stripe Knit Baby Hat Knitting Pattern from Red Heart. I think the changes are big enough to share my pattern here. Moderators, if you don't agree, I will take the pattern down!

I used cotton yarn, I think it was sports weight. I didn't make a swatch for my gauge, but this is what the original pattern calls for:
GAUGE: 22 sts = 4; 30 rows = 4 in St st. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size needles to obtain the gauge. Circumference: 17
My adjusted pattern is optimised for magic loop technique or knitting on double pointed needles. I'm sure you could also work it on regular knitting pins and seam it up later, but I'll leave the adjustments up to you!

Cast on 96 stitches.

Border, each round:
K3P1 in colour A (CA), until you have about 1 3/4 inch height. For me this was 14 rows.

Diamond pattern (stockinette):
You will join colour B here (CB). Carry your yarn on the back/inside of the work!
Round 1: knit solid CA - 96 stitches
Round 2: [3CA, 1CB] 24 times - 96 stitches
Round 3: 1CB, [1CA, 3CB] 23 times, 1CA, 2CB -96 stitches
Round 4: knit solid CB - 96 stitches
Round 5: 1CB, [1CA, 3CB] 23 times, 1CA, 2CB -96 stitches
Round 6: [3CA, 1CB] 24 times - 96 stitches

Knit * 3 times for a total of 18 rows. Drop colour B, leaving yarn tail long enough for weaving in your ends later.

Crown (shaping), solid CA:
Round 1: [K10, k2tog] 8 times - 88 stitches
Round 2 & all even rounds: knit
Round 3: [k9, k2tog] 8 times - 80 stitches
Round 5: [k8, k2tog] 8 times - 72 stitches
Round 7: [k7, k2tog] 8 times - 64 stitches
Round 9: [k6, k2tog] 8 times - 56 stitches
Round 11: [k5, k2tog] 8 times - 48 stitches
Round 13: [k4, k2tog] 8 times - 40 stitches
Round 15: [k3, k2tog] 8 times - 32 stitches
Round 17: [k2, k2tog] 8 times - 24 stitches
Round 19: [k1, k2tog] 8 times - 16 stitches
Round 21: [k2tog] 8 times -  8 stitches

Cut a yarn tail and bind all 8 stitches together to close the loop. Weave in your ends.
