    I just made one for my soon-to-be-born granddaughter. I'm not sure she'll be small enough to wear it though. I'll just donate it to a NICU if it comes to that. Really cute. I wish I knew how to post a pic of it. Thanks for the pattern.

      I just finished knitting this hat, but used Size 8 double points as I was also concerned about the size. It seems to be able to fit a newborn just fine, and I'm glad I went up a needle size.

      K= knit, CO= cast on, P= purl. I don't know a lot about crochet, but the other two sound like crochet terms for single crochet and double crochet. If that's the case, that would explain the confusion as the two are pretty different.

    2. These are knitting stitches. Nothing to do with crochet.

  8. Love this hat. I have a 6 month old granddaughter and would love to make this for her. The pattern is for a newborn. Do you have other size patterns in this hat or can you give me directions on how to resize so that I can make one to fit her.

    Is this hat knitted or crocheted? I'm not familiar with knitting bit I do crochet. Is there a big difference and if so how could I change it up a little to be able to crochet it?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Just finished mine and it looks adorable on my newborn. I added in 12 stitches after the ribbing so that it would fit her a little longer. It's a little big on her now, but still usable. But now it will fit all winter.

    Do u think that doubling or tripling the pattern would work? I have a year old and 1 1/2 yr old granddaughters.

  14. Such a cute hat! I was wondering if you could help me with sizing it for older girls or adults. I'm not very good at adjusting circular patterns on my own. Circular and double-points I'm assuming? Thanks so much!

    I assume there is a purl row in between each decrease row? Although this seems to make the hat quite pointed in top, can someone please clarify? Thanks!!

      Definitely no purl row. You decrease on each row

    To the anonymous who asked about a purl row in between each decrease row, the answer is no. This is knitted in the round on circular or double point needles, and therefore there is no purl row in between the rows.

    The pattern is kind of confusing as she uses the term "row" for the first part and then "round" for the decreasing, but the whole thing should say "round". The circular or double point needles should have been specified at the top with the needle size. Another discrepancy is the bow instructions. They say to knit for 8", but that would result in garter stitch. In the picture, the bow is in stockinette stitch, so the bow instructions should say "knit 8" in stockinette" or Row 1: Knit, Row 2: Purl, Repeat rows 1 and 2 for 8".

    Also, for those having trouble doing the k2tog in the decreases, which I found difficult on double points, I would suggest doing SSK instead. It's how I did mine, and it came out looking very neat.

      Is there a way to add more stitches to make it larger. If so is the decrease the same?

  21. To make the hat bigger: I would add by increments of 13. That way, when you start the decrease (K11, k2tog and repeat until this end of the row) you would have one extra repeat.

    For the bow: At firth I thought the instructions meant to knit in the round for 8 inches, that way you would get the stockinette stitch like in the photo rather than garter stitch. However, based on how many stitches are shown in the photo the best way to make the bow is to CO 15, K one row, P one row, K one row, P one row, etc that way you get the stockinette stitch. The sides curl inward when you fold the 8 inch pieces in half to join the ends together. Love that you done have to weave in the ends!

  26. The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may repair if you happen to werent too busy in search of attention. casino blackjack

  30. This hat looks like it is done in stockinette stitch, but your instructions are to knit every row---that's not going to get a hat that looks like the picture.

    1. If it's knit every row on dp or circulars, it will be stockinette. If straight needles, yes K 1 row, P 1 row.

  31. Is this done on circular needles? It doesn't seem to be when I see needles needed. But I am looking for something that is on two single pointed needles, so I guess this isn't for me after all.

  33. The smallest needles I have is size 10. The baby that I am knitting for will be about three months when winter comes. Should I just decrease the stitches by a few to make it fit?
