A special baby deserves a special hat.  These colourful hats are soft and smooth, machine-washable, and utterly adorable – perfect for new babies and new mothers.

They are knit in the round with a provisional cast on, a super-easy picot hem turn, and some grafting and shaping at the top.  The provisional cast on makes the hem as elastic as the rest of the hat, but you can always replace it with a loose long-tail cast on if you prefer.

The baby shown in the picture weighed 6 pounds 2 ounces at birth and is wearing the Newborn (12") size.  If you have reason to expect a 9-10 pound newborn, the Baby (14") size might be a better bet.

Note: Felici is a Special Reserve yarn that releases periodically. It is not always available, and the color offering changes regularly. See available options in the Kit Builder below.

I just finished knitting this darling hat with Felici colorway Lost Lakes. I see many more little newborn hats to come. Wonderful pattern!
