Formerly a free download, and now available for purchase. While the basic instructions are the same as my previous free version, I will be updating my pattern to include more helpful sizing information. Purchase now and receive the revised version automatically when updates are finalized.

Newborn beanie pattern for sport weight yarn and DPNs or Magic Loop circular knitting.

Gauge matters! I suggest knitting a Swatch Hat with the yarn you intend to use for future hats. Measure gauge after your item has been washed and blocked (non-superwash yarns) or machine-washed if you’re using machine washable yarns. Cast on for the smallest size in the pattern and measure how many stitches per inch are achieved in the round. Adjust your cast on number and/or needle size(s) accordingly.
