Aviatrix baby hat
Aviatrix is a fun, fast pattern for the cutest, best fitting baby helmet you will find. Worked on straight needles with instructions for 3 weights of yarn and 6 basic sizes this will become your “go to” last minute baby hat pattern, unassuming when it comes off the needles it needs to be placed on a baby’s head to reveal it’s true potential!
YES, it is called Aviatrix, NO it is not just for girls!
If I say “Aviator” its a unisex hat, for some reason if I say “Aviatrix” that makes it feminine, thank Bob babies can’t read ;-)

Please download the latest version of the pattern as it states the copyright rules very clearly. I’m afraid I can’t keep up with the number of emails from people who want to knit this hat and sell through ETSY or a craft market, PLEASE read the licence, if you meet the criteria you don’t need to contact me.
(Short rows) I have given basic wrap and turn instructions, if you would like less visible short rows you will need to use another short row technique, there are books, youtube videos and website devoted to these.
I have completely re-worked the sizing for this hat - you now have 7 sizes and 3 yarn weights to work from - sport, DK and Worsted.
The smallest size will fit a newborn and the largest will fit a small adult - just be sure to use a good elastic yarn such as a woollen spun wool for the best fit.
Please also check the size of the child’s head (if possible) for an even better fit.
The largest size in worsted fits my 4.5 yr old neice and my 19 yr old daughter - head sizes vary and good wool is very forgiving!
This hat has a unique constuction, making it quick and fun to knit and it is worked on straight needles only!
