Free pattern : Classic Baby Hat

*Modèle en français ici*

It’s my first time designing a pattern so please be indulgent and give me any advice you think necessary! I made it because I couldn’t find what I was looking for : a classic hat for babies (not newborn) with a sock yarn. Also, English is not my first language, so please forgive the eventual language mistakes in this pattern.

Also if you knit this, I would be happy to see the results! You can add your project on Ravelry here.

The finished hat is about 17-18cm (7″) high (without the pompom) and 35cm (14″) in circumference.

You will need:

  • 1 skein of fingering/sock yarn (2,5-3mm). I used the 100% cotton 8/4 from Sostrene Grene, colour Combi 5 – Red.
  • For the ribbing: 2,75mm circular needles, with a cable long enough for magic loop (or double pointed needles).
  • For the body: 3mm circular needles, with a cable long enough for magic loop (or double pointed needles).
  • A stitch marker for the beginning of round (a paper clip, some scrap yarn, or a small rubber band would also be perfect for this)
  • A tapestry needle
  • A computer or a TV for the long knitting hours (I used these 9-10 hours to watch The Witcher).

Cast on 110 stitches with the 2,75mm needles, place the beginning of round marker and join to work in round.

Ribbing : Work in 1/1 ribbing for 10cm (4″) (K1, P1 to the end of round)

Body : With the 3mm needles, work in stockinette for 9cm (3,5″) (only knitting!). The hat should now be about 19cm (7,5) high from the cast on.

Almost done! Cut the yarn leaving a tail (about 20cm/8″).

With the tapestry needle, bring the tail through the remaining stitches and pull. Make a little knot o secure and weave all the remaining ends.

Make a pompon with the rest of the yarn or with a contrasting colour.

That’s it! Le hat is finished! The advantage of this pattern is that you can adjust th size as you wish, as long a you use a multiple of 10 stitches. Just remember to adjust the height as well.

I hope this pattern will be ok for you. I haven’t given it yet to the parents of the baby, so I am still not sure if it fits right for her.

Please give me your own feedback!
