row 37-(k2, k2tog) to end of row
row 38-(p1, p2tog) to end of row
row 39-(k2tog) to end of row
At this point cut your yarn, leaving about a 2 ½ to 3 foot tail. Thread the tail through a yarn needle and
thread through remaining stitches. Take off knitting needle and pull thread to cinch remaining stitches.
Then, fold your hat in half inside-out and sew up the edge with your choice of stitch. Tie off and weave
in ends.
Cut length of ribbon about 3 feet long and thread through the eyelets at the bottom of the hat. Tie a
bow in your preferred size and trim any excess. Remember to cut the ribbon at a diagonal to help
prevent unraveling. Place on the head of a newborn baby and take in the cuteness.

  2. Hey Ashley, I love this little hat, and you've presented a very understandable pattern! I'm going to try it for my niece's little 6 week old baby.

  3. Hey there! I posted some pictures of the hats I made for my great-nephew here using your pattern:

    Thanks for the pattern!


    1. Wow, they turned out wonderful! You should post them on Ravelry too, it's a great site.

  4. What is the gauge for this newborn hat? Thanks.

    1. Amy, I am sorry for the late reply. I knitted a new hat so I could get a gauge swatch. Using worsted weight yarn (Lion Wool-ease), the gauge is 5 st and 7 rows for 1 inch.
