When I saw the “Tiny Bowknot” pattern in Barbara Walker’s 2nd Treasury, I just knew I had to make a preemie hat out of it. It’s just so cute and delicate, and perfect to spice up an otherwise typical stockinette hat. The stitch itself is easy to remember but uses the possibly novel “knit into the stitch below” (K1B) technique.

Since you have half a prayer of keeping a hat on a baby’s head, but very little of getting a tie on a squiggly babe, I chose to rename the pattern “baby bowties” - their heads can be fancy even if their necks aren’t!
