FREE baby hat pattern, generic.


Yarn…….acrylic suitable to be knit using a 4.5 or 5mm needle. Info is on the ball band.
I usually knit flat and seam the hat, but could be knit circular.

Cast on 66 stitches.
I used a 5mm needle.

A few rows of Garter stitch,
A few rows of stockinet stitch,
A couple of rows of seed stitch.

You can follow the picture or make up your own spacing of the rows.

When the hat is as long as your hand, decrease for crown.
Decrease the crown as desired. Most knitters have a favorite method.

Decorate the hat or leave plain. It looks good both ways.
