Tuttie Cutie Fruity Hats



These hats are way cute for a baby gift and they are super simple to make. You can make Lemon, peach,apple, tomatoe strawberry, pumpkin, eggplant (or grape) just depends on what color you like.

preemie use size 6 needles

Newborn-3 months size 8 needles

3-6 months 9 needles

*size 3 needles for leaves

yarn i used was:

plymouth yarn "Encore"
knitting worsted weight
75% acrylic 25% wool

Cast on 54 stitches and work in stockinette stitch for about 4 inches. Begin decreasing for the crown as follows

K 7, k 2 tog
K 6, k 2 tog
K 5, k 2 tog
K 4, k 2 tog
K 3, k 2 tog (this is where i switch to green to begin the stem.)
K 2, k 2 tog
K 1, k 2 tog

Then keep in stockinette until the stem is as long as you like.



How to make the Leaves:

On size 3 needles cast on 3 stitches and work 2 rows in garter stitch,

Continue in garter stitch increasing at each end of the next two rows (7 stitches).

Work 5 rows, then decrease 1 stitch at each end for the next 2 rows (3 stitches).

slip the next stitch to other needle, knit 2 together, and bind off.

I love the Eggplant hat! (You don't see many of those.) I'll have to try that one.

I just made an apple hat with your instructions. I'm not the best knitter, so they were perfect for me. Although if I make it again, I will knit a separate i-cord for the stem so it's not so chunky. I wanted a brown stem and green leaves and the brown stem turned out kinda looking like a turd. Oh well:) Babies look cute in anything! Thanks!!!

kay i'm super new to all this so i apologize for my ignorance.
first question, this is on round needles, right?
2nd question when you get to this part
K 7, k 2 tog
K 6, k 2 tog
K 5, k 2 tog
K 4, k 2 tog
K 3, k 2 tog (this is where i switch to green to begin the stem.)
K 2, k 2 tog
K 1, k 2 tog
I would do each of those for one row? like K 7, k 2 tog over and over until I get all the way around to the begining again?
THanks so much

I was wondering the same thing as Misty. Thanks for sharing this super-cute pattern!

This pattern is too hard to read due to the colors of the font and the page. I can barely see it and I'm not color blend. Is it possible to change the format there to a better contrast? I would love to make them...

I know this is a very old post, but I LOVE these hats! I've made several for gifts and people love them.

I was wondering--would it be OK if I used this pattern to make a few of these hats to donate to the silent auction for the preschool where I work? I would just make them and donate them and the school would get the money from the auction.
