Can you provide the correct size for a newborn I need to be a bit smaller If you wanted to make a smaller hat you could try two different options. One method would be to use smaller needles maybe a size 6 rather than 8 and a 5 rather than 7 and follow the pattern as written.

You'd have to experiment with needle size, gauge, and fabric quality, because you don't want the hat to be too dense. Otherwise, you could cast on any multiple of 6 that works for you. Is the hat coming out too long too? If it isn't, you can follow the pattern up to the crown shaping that matches the stitch count you started with. For example, if you cast on 54 stitches, you could follow the pattern as written and 'skip' the first crown shaping directions because they decrease you to 54 stitches in the original pattern. I would just knit them and then begin the crown shaping next.
I hope that makes sense! I will give it another try Also I found I need to switch to double pointed needs when I start decreasing! DPNs would work too if you prefer to knit that way. I always prefer magic loop because I don't like how DPNs are fiddly. Once Ll done. To do that you will need to cast on 2 extra stitches on each end to accommodate the seam.
For ribbing these end stitches will be knit on the right side and purled on the wrong side. You can continue the crown shaping as written, but your stitch count will be different. Good luck! Can 't aait to try this for my grandson n grand daughter. Parents are big fans so, they are sure to get a kick out of this hat.
So, nice to see you post these well explain knit patterns. How do I figure out how ton! The stitch count would be as follows:Row 1: 63Row 3: 56Row 5: 49Row 7: 42Row 9: 35Row 28Row 21As always I would suggest making a gauge swatch, measuring the child's head, comparing the two, and doing a little knitting math to ensure a good fit. Any idea how you wild alter the pattern to fit him?
Thank you in advance! ReplyDeleteRepliesJessicaOctober 20, at AMI think if you cast on 80 stitches, then make the ribbing, and then knit to 7 or 7. It would depend on the circumference of the child's head and of course your grandma's gauge while knitting. Also, you might want to make the top white stripe before starting the decrease section.
You'll have to see what it looks like as you go along. I do hope this helps!
Everyone in my family is a football nut! My 35 year old nephew and his wife decided that they would have a baby after all! I was thrilled because I also had 2 other pregnant nieces same family. I was sure it would be a boy but they wanted to wait and be surprised. So in the past 8 months I have made 14 baby blankets, 2 dresses, 2 tag blankets, and of course this hat for our 'BOY' who turned out to be a beautiful girl. Offered to make a pink one and they could give the brown one to my niece having a boy just before the Super Bowl.
But her Daddy wants the brown one and they are going to have a portrait done with it on her. So now I am making another brown one.
Thank you for such happiness! I'm so happy that I was able to make you and your family happy :!! I wish your family and their new babies all good things. I have the hat knitted but I do not quite understand 'surface slip stitch crochet'. Is that just doing a chain stitch and then attaching it at the beginning and the end into the brown and then doing the cross stitches like embroidery the keep it down?

Could you please explain that process further? Do I add the extra stitches on when first casting them all on or before I start to decrease the top of the hat? Thank you :ReplyDeleteRepliesJessicaJanuary 29, at PMYou'd add the two extra stitches when you cast on so that you have them to seam the entire hat.
Hope that helps. What a wonderful pattern you have made! What a wonderful thing you are doing, giving I've never made a hat before so you are also giving one the opportunity to expand their knitting portfolio of techniques and creativity. So just a huge thanks for making us all better than we were yesterday! It's the first thing I've knit in 35 years.
I was no expert then, but it came out beautifully! Thanks so much for your generosity in sharing. The only change I made after a practice version was to switch the ribbing to a knit one, purl one for a tighter finish. I took a picture, but I guess I can't send it. Looks as good as yours though! This is Round 7. You are right that it looks like stockinette stitch, because it is!
However, the hat is knit in the round, so to get stockinette stitch in the round all you have to do is knit. If you are making this flat and modifying then you would alternate knit and purl rows. I hope this helps. ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyvolgakalki99 mayorOctober 27, at AMThis is an easy paper craft for children that teaches them about shapes also.

There is no better starter knitting project than knitting a baby hat: you can do it in a short amount of time, you only need one skein of yarn, and people with new babies love hand-crafted gifts! StepsPart 1Preparing to Knit1Select the type of yarn. Because you have chosen to knit a baby hat, you will more than likely select a baby yarn.
Consider buying extra-soft baby yarn, but know that you do not have to buy a yarn that is specifically made for babies. Know what yarn weight you need. Remember that not all parents want pink for a girl or blue for a boy. Consider a gender neutral color or primary color.
Consider choosing a variegated baby yarn instead of a solid color. There are also some new yarns that form a pattern as you knit. Many baby hat patterns require size 6 4mm needles. Start with straight needles if you are just beginning to knit. Circular needles are generally used by more advanced knitters. Determine how big your needles need to be. The needle size determines how big the loops are in your hat, and the wrong needles may lead to the hat being the wrong size. Note that there are metric and US sizes, so you may need to convert the size.
Casting on is the way that you begin your knitting by creating a row of loops on one of your needles.

See How to Knit for step-by-step instructions for casting on. Cast on 60 loops if using 4mm needles more if the hat is not for a newborn. Hold your needles so that the left needle has the knitting on it, the needle points are facing away from you, and the yarn is leaving the needle to the right, on the bottom side of the needle.

Hold the needle with the cast-on loops in your left hand and pass the needle in your right hand through the stitch and behind your left needle. Wrap a loop of yarn counter-clockwise around the right needle point. Pull the right needle off through the stitch on the left side, and push the top stitch off of the left needle. Each knit stitch will add one loop to the needle on the right and remove one from the needle on the left.
When you finish a row, change the needles to your other hands so that you start each row with the knitting on the left needle. Be sure your knitting trails to the right as you are knitting, towards the at first empty needle. After knitting for about 5 inches, begin to decrease the length of your knitting. Continue the 2-stitch decrease until you have only one loop left on your needle. Be sure to leave yourself a nice long tail of yarn for sewing the sides of the hat together. Tie the tail in a simple knot where it leaves the knitting before you begin to stitch with it.
Use a large sewing needle or a bobby pin, sew the hat sides together.
