So this is basically my pattern, I took ideas from several patterns to make it. It’s a basic hat but you can do many different things to it like do seed instead of rib, or not do the ribbon just make a plain hat, or even put a little pom pom on top. I love making pom poms for baby hats I think it’s just too cute. It’s pretty simple once you get the hang of it, and if you’re still a beginner it’s a bit easier to not use the YO row. You can use any medium weight yarn or lightweight (just make sure the hat isn’t going to be too tight), soft yarn is best for baby hats.
Sizes: 0-3M 64 STS, 3-6M 72, 6-12M 80
Needles needed for this 0-3M you need US 7 DPN for 3-12M US 8 DPN
Note: you don’t have to use DPNs you can use straight or circular needles, it depends on your preference.
rows 1-5 Rib (K1, P1)
rows 6-9 begin Stockinette stitch(or just keep going if you don’t want to use ribbon)
row 10 K3 YO *K2tog K6 YO repeat from * K3 (3-6M K3 YO *k2tog K7 YO Repeat from * K4 — 6-12M K5 YO *K2tog K10 YO repeat from* K5)
rows 11-25 continue Stockinette stitch (3-6M 10-27, 6-12M 10-31)
these next rows are the decrease rows which round off the top and complete the hat.
K between each decrease row so remember that because I’m listing the decreases not the all the rows.
If on Straight needles P between and on second to last decrease P2tog instead of K2tog, but always end with K2tog.

Cut yarn (if on straight make sure you have enough to sew with) on a yarn needle thread the yarn through the stitches just worked and pull tight. Weave in ends.
If you have any questions or if you’re stuck then let me know and I’ll try to help you get through. This is a easy enough pattern that you can do in a few hours and looks so cute when finished. I’ll post a pattern for adult/kid hats later. Enjoy!
