This newborn baby hat is knit top down beginning with a bit of i-cord to make a top knot. A rounded crown is shaped with rapid increases. The in-between rows stack a purl stitch on the previous increase, nearly eliminating the need for counting or stitch markers. The vertical purl stripes are continued through the length of the hat. The brim is finished with a classic 2x2 ribbing and a simple but stretchy bind off. Brim may be worn straight or folded up.

finished size: 13”/33cm circumference stretches to 16”/41cm, 5”/13cm from top to brim
