Ruffled Newborn Hat

Hi Ya’ll - here’s a hat I just made for a baby girl my friend just had. I know you can’t tell that well, but I used a light pink ribbon through it. Not perfect but it’s the best hat I’ve made so far. I used DPNs for the first time! YAY! It was easier than I thought it would be :smiley:

:cheering: Love it!! My first hat ended up so big dh can’t even wear it :rofling: I leave the hat knitting up to you guys now… :thumbsup: Great job!!

believe me…i’ve knitted so many hats that turned out terribly! this was the first one to turn out right! my son looks like a rastafarian in the hat I made him :roflhard:


LOL I should add the hat to big for dh was for my 5yr old son :rollseyes:

LOL maybe after Christmas I’ll try again… I’m working on a helmet liner and I’m soo afraid its gonna end up so HUGE noone can wear it…

at least you are trying! good luck…I hope it works out :thumbsup:

:happydance: :happydance: Nice job Kate :wink: LOL, I used to be petrified of dpns…not anymore! They are quite easy, yes!?


I just LOVE that hat! Was it a free pattern off the NET?

That in one cuuuute hat!!!

Hi Vanessa - yes, this was a free pattern posted here on knittinghelp. It’s in the hat section on the bottom under baby hats. It’s called Ellen’s Ruffled Hat. I did it because it said beginner :lol:

Thank you so so so much I might make one for my little BEAN :O) Ijust LOVE how it turned out you did such a GREAT job!!! What are you working on next???
Vanessa :happydance:

It was so easy and it looks so nice…i would definitely recommend it. Right now I’m working on a poncho for my neice and hopefully soon I can start a hat for my son that will actually fit!

If you want a good hat pattern thats not to to hard let me know… How old is your son??? I will give you a GREAT site for hats once i find it HEE HEE I have a tone of links and stuff so let me look and I will send it to you.

Oh great!!! My son is 3 and my daughter is 1 1/2. I’d love a site for a good hat for them. I tried making a simple one for him before but it was way too big! He looked so silly! :lol:
Thank you so much!

Very cute! I really like the colors.

Great job!! I :heart: that hat! Everyone I know who is pg is having a boy :rollseyes: so it remains on my mental “to-knit” list. :smiley:
