Worked in one piece in an easy-to-remember but effective textured pattern, this pretty hat is a useful addition to any baby’s wardrobe. The short row shaping at the back of the head makes for a perfect fit and the seam is joined using a three needle bind-off to avoid bulky seams. The straps are picked up and knitted from the garter stitch hem and then worked in springy garter stitch to avoid excess length, the overall result being an on-trend Scandinavian statement to suit boys and girls alike - a perfect gift for expectant families!
Knitting this now...biggest size taking bit more wool than anticipated. Lovely pattern, little tricky on shaping if haven’t done it before, but fine once you’ve got the hang of it.
