Knit Infant Hat



These are the perfect baby shower gift--so cute and soft and quick to make. I whipped them out while watching a movie one night with time to spare.

I love this baby-soft pink hat.


But, I have a real thing for anything cream, tan, or brownish. So this hat is my favorite. I love it! I think I'll adjust the size and make one for me. :)




Here's the pattern. Like I said, it is super soft and super simple. A keeper for sure.

Knit Infant Hat
Size 15 knitting needles
Super Chunky yarn

Cast on 28 stitches onto 3 needles. Work in the round.
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit 1, Purl 1
Row 3: Purl 1, Knit 1

Voila!

  2. Super cute ~ soft and sweet! I like to knit too. Just finished a crochet beanie for a new granddaughter due in Feb. But a little one can never have too many hats :)

    Nice visiting, Jaime!

  5. Could you use circular needles as well? just knit every row in the round?

  6. I have just created this very quick used chunky as the shop I went to did not have super chunky, love this pattern it is very quick and to answer the previous question whether or not you can use circular needles, the answer is yes if you use magic loop technique and the hat turns out great. Also cast on using the long tail cast on. Thanks for this pattern is awesome :D

  7. Why does it say 3 needles? What about circular needles?

    1. You could use circular needles just great; I just didn't have the right size. :) As the hat narrows at the top, you will need to convert to 3 strait needles anyway.

  8. I have never knitted with DPN before... when you say" Cast on 28 stitches onto 3 needles. Work in the round" do you mean 28 stitches on each needle or a total of 28 stitches

  9. It is a total of 28 stitches spread relatively evenly between the 3 needles. I hope it goes well for you!

  10. Hi there. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. If I want to knit it for a 3yrs old. What number of stitches I should cast on? Many thanks x

    1. Hi Monica! Goodness, I wish I could tell you--your guess would be as good as mine. If it were me, I'd probably measure the head and look at other patterns that use bulky yarn to get an idea. I'd say somewhere between 10 and 20 more stitches???
