Norwegian Baby Hat

Norwegian Hat 3Alright, I had written a whole lovely explanation of what happened with the baby hat. And then my computer DIED. Isn't that awesome? So, I'm gonna write it all down on paper and then add the pattern to here. Does anyone know of a baby who needs a hat? The one I made is newborn sized, and Nolan isn't quite so little now. He's 9 months old now! Can you believe it? Maybe I'll make another one for him out of some sock yarn. If not, I'll make one out of sock yarn for the Q2 challenge. I'm just worried about sending handspun wool to a place that might not be able to take proper care of it. :D

Heavy worsted weight yarn (approx 50-60yds)
Size 9 DPNs (or size needed to obtain gauge)Norwegian Hat Side 2
Stitch markers
Tapestry needle

Gauge: 4sts = 1"

Sizes: 0-3mos, 2-6mos, 6-9mos, 9-12mos
Finished Measurements: 13", 14", 15" 17"

Pattern Notes:
PM - place marker
DD - slip 2 sts together as if to knit, K1, pass slipped sts over
KLL & KRL - to view videos of these increases look here, you'll have to scroll down

I count the increase as one stitch, seperate from the stitches knitted before and after it. Remember that when counting stitches or you might end up off a stitch.


CO 53 (57, 63, 69) sts. Join in the round, being careful not to twist. Work in garter stitch for 3/4", ending with a knit round. K 18 (19, 21, 23), PM, K 17 (19, 21, 23), PM, K 17 (19, 21, 23). Markers are to help you remember where to increase, placing a marker for the decreases is (unfortunately) more of a hassle than a help.

Continue as follows:

RND 1: KRL, K 8 (8, 9, 10), DD, K to marker, KLL, KRL, K 7 (8, 9, 10), DD, K to marker, KLL, KRL, K 7 (8, 9, 10), DD, K 8 (8, 9, 10), KLL

RND 2: K around

Rep these two rounds until hat measures 3 (3, 4, 5) inches, remove markers and omit increases in RND 1 after this point. Continue until 5 (6, 6, 6) sts left.

Break yarn and thread tail through remaining stitches using tapestry needle. Weave in ends and promptly chase down some poor infant to model your work!

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
