Can you believe that it is almost Autumn again (or Fall if you live in the USA 😄 )
What a year it has been, with lockdown everywhere, I feel almost that we missed out on half of the year. I have spent the last few months creating a whole new range of baby knitwear. My absolute favourite at the moment is the popcorn bobble patterned outfits, so of course I had to create a lovely snuggly winter baby beanie to match!
This adorable baby beanie pattern knits up quickly and is fairly easy to knit. A beginner with a little experience, should be able to manage. You just need to be able to knit, purl, decrease and knit the bobble. There is a full explanation and a link to a video that shows you how to make the popcorn bobble -- its a lot easier than you think! ( I do sell the little knitted hats
too, if you don't want to make one for yourself)
Knit in an Aran / Worsted yarn, with knitting needles size 4mm and 5 mm (US 6 and 8). The hat is knit flat (not in the round), on straight needles, with a seam at the back. You can knit the whole hat with the bobbles, or just a few rows, or even knit the hat without the bobbles. The hat can be knit as a beanie or you can add a few extra rows, to make a slouchie instead.
I have added a faux fur pom pom bobble to the top, but you could make a yarn bobble or even leave it off altogether, whichever you like.
The hat knits up soft and stretchy, and you could make up a few for Christmas gifts, for use as a photography prop, or for your own baby to use as everyday babywear.
Knit them up in lovely rich warm winter colours of cream, cinnamon, mustard and browns, or go festive, and use red white and green, or classic smoky pinks and blues...
The knitting pattern will be in a PDF digital format that you can download from one of my online stores.
