I made this hat sort of by combining a couple patterns. Its Super easy and Fast!! I love it its so cute. I dont have any kids or babies of that matter but I love making baby things because they are small and fast to make. I am very impatiant and big projects like afghans and blankets bore me and I find I have like 10 blankets half done or less. So I started going crazy with the baby hats. This one i knit the hat but then made a crochet flower to attach with a button.
It should fit a newborn - 6 months
The yarn i used is Moda Dea cartwheel yarn 100% wool
Size 6 needles and Size 8 needles
Directions: On size 6 needles cast on 56 stitches
Work in purl 2 Knit 2 ribbing for about 1 inch
Then with size 8 needles begin in stockingnette stitch for approximately 4 inches.

K 3, k 2 tog

Cut yarn about 12", leaving enough length to thread through remaining sts. Sew up the back and there ya go !!!
