While on trip to D.C, I had lots of hours in the car to knit. I am in the process of making a lot of very classic cuffed baby hats to donate. I was getting tired of the same old pattern. So I decided to try a new one. However with poor cell reception in places, I ended up making up my own pattern.
Here it is…
Yarn – Baby Bee Sweet Delight
Needles size 2-3 circular needle size 2 or 3 double point needle
Cast On 72
Rows 1-21 work in 2X2 ribbing. Pattern as follows Knit 2, Purl 2.
Knit 5 rows
Purl 2, Knit 2 around.
Knit 2, Purl 2
Repeat sections 2-5 until measures 8″ from cast on edge.
Section 6 – crown shaping.
*Knit 1, ssk, knit 13, knit2tog. Repeat from * 3 times.
Knit 1 row
The above is your crown decrease move to double pointed needles as you need.
Once you have decreased to 16 stitches, cut working yarn using a tapestry, thread through last 16 stitches, and pull tight.
Weave in ends.
