There’s a new hat pattern for newborns (infants, toddlers, children) off to the test knitters today!  Aptly named for Nolan, my newest nephew who inspired the design, I hope to have it released in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the pattern details:


Yarn:  Any sportweight or DK yarn that you can get gauge with, approximately 50 (65, 80, 100) yards per hat

Needles: 1 set of 3.25 mm dpns

Additional Notions: 1 stitch marker, darning needle

Gauge:  Approximately 12 stitches to 2 inches over in garter rib (unstretched)

Sizes: Newborn (Infant, Toddler, Child) These translate to approximate head circumferences of 13.5 (17, 19, 21) inches when stretched.

Stitches/Abbreviations Used:  CO cast on; BO bind off; K knit; P purl; P2tog purl 2 stitches together; K2tog knit 2 stitches together; SK2TogPSSO slip one stitch, knit next two stitches together, passed slipped stitch over that new stitch


So get that yarn wound and your needles ready!  This is a quick knit that is perfect for all those little heads this holiday and winter season!
