Newborns - at least, those delivered rather than “hatched,” as we put it in my family - have pointy heads. All that squeezing… this reminded me of the old Coneheads skit from Saturday Night Live… and so I decided to make a hat for a coneheaded baby. It’s an extremely easy pattern, and lots of fun to make.

Finished size: 10in (14in) circumference 25cm (35cm)

Gauge: 18sts and 30rows to 4in (10cm) in stockinette stitch in the round

1 (partial) skein worsted weight yarn (I used Peaches N Creme 100% Cotton)
US7 (4.5mm) needles - whatever you use for knitting small things in the round
Stitch markers: 1 of one color, 5 additional of different color(s)
Yarn needle
