I made this one for my little one who really does not need another hat.

And this one is for a friend's baby.  He's not here yet but I'm sure he'll need a hat.

Here it is being modled by my boy for full effect.

Please let me know what you think.  I always appreciate feedback.


Spiral Rib Hat (Blue)

This one uses sport weight yarn held double and US #8 needles but I've also used worsted weight yarn and #7 needles.  The hat is knitted in the round; I like to use dpn's but that's just me. This is a super stretchy hat good for the lumpy, bumpy heads of newborns; because it's sooo stretchy gauge doesn't need to be exact. For the record mine was about three and a half stitches per inch.

CO 64 st, join, and place marker to begin.

Rounds 1 thru 4: k2, p2 to end
Rounds 5 thru 8: p1, *k2, p2* repeat between * to last stitch, p1
Rounds 9 thru 12: p2 k2 to end
Rounds 13 thru 16: k1 *p2 k2* repeat beteen * to last stich, k1
Repeat rounds 1 thru 16 a secound time (32 rounds) then begin decreases.

Round 1: k2, p2tog to end
Round 2: k2tog, p1 to end
Round 3: k1, p1 to end
Round 4: k2tog to end
Round 5: k to end
Round 6: k2tog to end

Break yarn leaving a 6 inch tail, using a yarn needle draw the tail thru all remaining stiches to finish

Earflap Hat (Green)
I knit this in the round on #7 dpn's using worsted weight yarn.  Gauge is 4 st per inch

Earflaps, make 2
Cast on 3 st
kfb in first st of each row and knit remainder of st until you have 15 st.
Leave a 12 in tail and place on holder or dpn

With working yarn purl across first earflap begining at opposite end as tail.  With the tail in front and working yarn to the back cast on 13 st using long tail method.  Now, purl across second earflap as done with the first one.  Cast on 21 st as before.
Join and work three rounds in garter st.  switch to St st and work until hat measures 5 in.

Round 1: K6, k2tog
Round 2 and all even rows: K
Round 3: K5, k2tog
Round 5: K4, k2tog
Continue in this manner until you have 4 st remaining, k one round.  Break yarn leaving a 6 inch tail, using a yarn needle draw the tail thru all remaining stiches to finish.

Please let me know if you have any issues with either of the patterns!

I loved the green hat, it's such an awesome color. Then I scrolled down further and without meaning to, said"oooooooooooooh, aaaaaaaaawwwww." at the sweet baby face.  My husband had to come see what I was looking at!  He thinks your little guy is a cutie, too.   Would you post a pattern for the green one?  I really love it.

It doesn't feel like exercise when you're wearing chiffon.

your boy is ADORABLE!!!!!!! He makes my uterus quiver. Grin
I love that blue hat, I just made one that looks very similar! It doesn't have the cable twist, but it moves around in the same fashion. Awesome!

1.  You have the cutest baby!! 
2.  Cute Cute Cute hats!
3.  I would second the request for a pattern if you were willing to post. 

(not sure why the itemized list...  )

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

i don't think a baby can ever have too many hats, especially ones as lovely and practical as those!
« Reply #8 on: February 04, 2006 07:59:25 AM »

those hats look really nice! most of the baby hats I've seen have looked a little... off, but these look great!

your model is cute, too!  Grin

Hand-dyed and recycled yarn, hand knits, and more!

I also go overboard making hats, with 3 kids, they always seem to be in need of new, cute ones. 

I love yours, could you share a pattern for both?  Your baby is so cute as well!
