Basic Baby Hat Pompoms
This is a PATTERN for a baby hat size 0-3 months.
If you are looking for an easy hat pattern to surprise a new mom - this is it!
This hat can be knitted in the round or in rows. Whatever seems easier to you!
Materials: one circular 24” or a set of two straight knitting needles size US 7 (4.5 mm),
Yarn: 120 yards/ 110 m Worsted yarn (I actually used sock yarn two strands held together for the hat in the photo: Koigu KPPPM col. P863 (100% Merino 50g/175 yards/160m), tapestry needle, scissors, cardboard paper (you could use an empty cereal box)
IF YOU KNIT THIS HAT IN THE ROUND: you will need a 12” circular needle size US 7 for the bottom part or work the entire hat on double pointed needles (= set of 4 or 5 needles).
Gauge: 20 sts/28 rows in Stockinette Stitch on a US 7/4.5 mm needle (Stockinette Stitch means: knit one row, purl one row repeat from to or knit only when worked in the round)
I have added lots of pictures and details to this pattern. The instruction is four pages long but only because of all the details.
When you download the pattern be sure to download both versions: the in the round version and the in rows version
