Tiny Baby Ear Snuggling Hat by Diana Troldahl

Tiny Baby Ear Snuggling Hat

This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Written expressly for charities supported by Wool-Aid, this tiny 12-14” hat is also suitable for preemies.
A ribbed forehead and shaped garter-stitch ear and neck snuggler make sure this hat will fit.

For a 12” hat, use Aran-weight yarn, for a 14” hat use bulky.
Materials: 50 – 75 yards Aran or bulky weight yarn on #8 and #9 needles respectively.

Pattern is written for DPNs but easily adjusted for using magic loop or two circular needles. Green hat was made using 4 strands of Knit Picks Shadow Tonal in Spring Time. Purple hat was made using Knit Picks City Tweed in Morning Glory.
-Aran gauge is 4.6 stitches per inch, bulky is 4 stitches per inch. Using Aran yarn will result in a 12” hat, bulky will give you a 14” hat. Both measurements are taken unstretched and allow for 2-3 inches of negative ease.
-You will also need two stitch markers and a yarn needle for weaving in ends.
