This hat is so cute and so tiny! As my toddlers get older it's easy to forget how small a newborn's head is. I needed a basic newborn hat pattern with all the babies around in my world so I came up with this.
Size 6 dpn
DK weight baby yarn
CO64 stitches and join in the round taking care not to twist
K2 P2 for 4cm to create the ribbing
K around until the hat is 9.5 cm
[K6, K2tog] around
[K5, K2tog] around
[K4, K2tog] around
[K3, K2tog] around
[K2, K2tog] around
[K1, K2tog] around
Using a yarn needle, thread the excess yarn through the stitches that are left and tie off on the inside of the hat. Then sew the two buttons to the ribbed area as shown.
