Free Pattern: Simple Garter Brim Baby Hat

I just love the simplicity of this hat… I think it’s the yarn that really makes it work. A quick knit up, and a great gift.

Size: 0-3 months
Yarn: Any worsted/light worsted yarn. Solid colors show off the pattern better than multis. I used Berroco Vintage in color Lilac.
Needles: Size 7 DPNs
Gauge: 5sts per inch

Directions:

Cast on 64 sts with size 7 circular needles. Work approximately 1” in garter stitch. Then switch to stockinette stitch for 5”. Decrease for top as follows:

K8, K2TOG
K7, K2TOG
K6, K2TOG
K5, K2 TOG

Continuing down until you K2TOG all the way around. Break yarn leaving an 8” tail. Weave tail through remaining stitches, cinch up, and weave in ends. All done!
