Hi all,
Does anyone have a link to a basic baby-hat pattern, knitted from the top down, but NOT on circular or dpn's? ie knitted flat then joined with a seam.
Asking on behalf of Mum who hates dpn's. Crochet isn't something she likes to do, either.
Thanks in advance

I've never heard of a top down hat pattern that's seamed. There's quite a few bottom up though.

Yeah, normally dobottom up, but am running out of wool regularly because Mum is using a pattern which is old and they dont' make the suggested wool any more. Mum thought that if she started at the top and worked down that she could just stop when she runs out of wool Smiley

Sure, makes sense, but she might not have enough to make it long enough that way either. It's pretty easy to do over starting at the bottom, though; if it's not enough to fasten off, undo partway back and start the decs earlier.

Even if you can't get the same yarn as in the pattern anymore, you can sub something else that will knit up at the same gauge, the same weight class of yarn.

Hello; I'm new to the forum but I have a pattern suggestion for you. I recently found (and am making for a new grandchild on-the-way) this pattern from Bernat yarns.

Hope this is helpful.

it's for adults but can be altered. Increase to 64 stitches and then bind off.
