What does every baby need to keep away the chill yet look cool? A hat, of course!
Here’s one you can whip up in half an hour (seriously!) with our bulky multishades yarn and get your toddler ready for the chilly Bangalore winter in a snap!
1 skein of Hachi Bulky Multishades (100 grams) -You can knit up about 3-4 hats in 100 grams!
Tip: Make one for papa, mama and baby!
4 Hachi double pointed needles size US 11, 9 mm
Fits: 6 months to 1 year olds
Cast on 72 stitches on one double-pointed needle. Redistribute stitches (slipping purlwise) so that 24 stitches are on each of three double-pointed needles; join to knit in the round, making sure the stitches are not twisted.
Knit 2 inches of K2, P2 ribbing.
Begin stockinette stitch (knitting every round) until the hat measures 5.2 inches from the cast on edge.
We now start decreasing for the crown.
K6, K2tog; repeat to end of round (rep to EOR) – (63 stitches)
K5, K2tog; rep to EOR (54 stitches)
K4, K2tog; rep to EOR (45 stitches)
K3, K2tog; rep to EOR (36 stitches)
K2, K2tog; rep to EOR (27 stitches)
K1, K2tog; rep to EOR (18 stitches)
K2tog; rep to EOR (9 stitches)
Cut a 12” length of yarn and thread a tapestry needle. Weave yarn through the remaining 9 stitches and tug gently to close the opening.
Make 1 large pompom (Check out our step by step photo tutorial on how to make a pompom here: https://hachiyarns.wordpress.com/2012/06/10/yummy-pom-pom-rug-free-no-knitting-pattern/). Poke the needle through a nearby stitch to the underside of the hat, use the 2 threads from the pompom to secure the pompom to the top of the hat. Weave in ends; trim excess yarn. Wash hat according to guidelines on the ball band and lay flat to dry.
