Kathy’s Baby Hats

It seems like every day a customer comes into the store looking for a quick baby knit. We usually recommend a sweater, but why not a hat? They’re great for protecting little heads from the sun and for keeping warm in the air conditioning.

Kathy's Baby Hats

Kathy came up with three adorable hat patterns using a wonderful baby yarn, Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. Each hat has a different brim and crown–you could make just one, or present the new parents with a set. Click here to download the pattern.

These hats are a great addition to your baby pattern repertoire, especially if you’re looking for a last-minute gift!

  4. The hats are adorable. My daughter has been asking for a striped hat and I wanted to use the baby cashmerino I had on hand.

    I also would like to know how to size up this hat (see Judi’s comment). I would be interested in a size for 5 yr old. Many thanks.

  5. LOVE these hats! One question. Are they knit on circular or dpns? I’m more comfortable with circ. needles. Thanks!

  6. We started with a circular and switched to double points. If you don’t like dpn’s, you could use 2 circ’s or the magic loop technique.

    I think I’m a tight knitter because my first one was super small. I’m going to try the next with size 4 needles (3 for ribbing).

    I’d like to make the striped version and like how the picture shows even stripes. Do you know how many rows you changed colors after the rib?

    Thanks again.
