Errata:The child sized hat should be cast on 66. The PDF has been updated to reflect this.

Errata 2:I have had some feedback regarding the baby-sized hat being too small. I’ve made modifications to the stitch count and length of this size. As of 12/6/11 the download reflects these changes.

This is a simple hat that utilizes helical knitting. Sizes are for baby and young child.

These hats do not require a large amount of yardage. You can make multiple hats with 2 full skeins or use up half ball “leftovers.” The Small uses approx. 65 yards, the medium uses approx. 75 yards total. You will use slightly more of the main color.

Thanks goes to Grumperina for her wonderful explanation of Helical Knitting.
