There is nothing more satisfying than whipping up a little hat for a newborn baby, lovingly made with all the optimism and joy that new life brings. This simple hat can be knit quickly and easily, and can be on your newborn’s head before you know it.

And it’s even more satisfying to know that your creation can help keep babies safe and well in hospital for their first hours of life—see here for more on this great initiative.

This beanie is knit top-down in stocking stitch, perfect for beginners and more experienced knitters alike. It can be knit flat or in the round: both sets of instructions are given.
