Knit Baby Hat

This one i knit the hat but then made a crochet flower to attach with a button.It should fit a newborn - 6 months

The yarn i used is Moda Dea cartwheel yarn 100% wool or you can use any worsted

Size 6 needles and Size 8 needles

Directions: On size 6 needles cast on 56 stitches

Work in purl 2 Knit 2 ribbing for about 1 inch

(here i decrease 2 on both ends to end up with 54 stitches so it knits up nicer)

Then with size 8 needles begin in stockingnette stitch for approximately 4 inches.

Begin decreasing for the crown as follows:
K 7, k 2 tog

K 6, k 2 tog

K 5, k 2 tog

K 4, k 2 tog

K 3, k 2 tog

K 2, k 2 tog

K 1, k 2 tog

k 2 tog across

Cut yarn about 12", leaving enough length to thread through remaining sts. Sew up the back and there ya go !!!

I'm really liking yourpattern, but did have a question. When you start to decrease, it's K the whole way and therefore gives a garter stitch look. In your picture, it's still the stockinette stitch. Am I reading it wrong?

I was wondering the exact same thing so I think I'm going to try purling between each line, I hope it turns out, I'll let you know :)

I am also confused about the decrease.
First because of the question asked above. Second because I am wondering if each line is a new row and if so is that a repeat the entire row?

If anyone has completed this project can you please let me know if you did this in St stitch or garter? Thanks

HI Brook,
I am a brand-new knitter and I love the look of this baby hat. I have a quick question about needle size and I’m not sure which size to use.

Do I use size 6.00 mm & 8.00 mm needles?
Or do I use US #6 & #8 needles?

Many thanks and many thanks for posting this pattern!

I love this pattern! Thank you! I do have a question though. I am relatively new to knitting and am not sure if I am reading the pattern right. For the decrease, I k7 k 2 tog. Do I do this all the way across the row, then purl the next row, etc...? I tried this way, and my top was very pointy, which yours is not! Any help would be much appreciated!!
Thank you!

You r reading it right. For whatever reason it doesn’t say to purl after each knit together row. But you do.
