Two Colored Baby Hat

Here's a basic pattern for a 2-colored baby hat. (Fits Newborn to 6-mons.)

Materials:  Size 7 or Size 8 Needles.  DPNs or 40-in Cir for Magic Loop.

Med. weight yarn.  

I like Caron "Simply Soft" or Loops & Threads "Soft & Shiny" for baby items.    I had a small ball of hot pink (Watermelon) yarn about baseball size and I used just a wee bit of the contrasting color.

Yarn Needle

Size 7 Needles. Magic Loop Method.

Yarn: Starry Night (Loops & Threads)

CO 66 sts. with Starry Night Yarn. Join to knit in the round.


Work in K3 P3 rib to complete 8 rounds. Cut yarn and join second color.

Cut yarn about 8-ins. and thread onto yarn needle. Pass needle through all live stitches, slipping them off knitting needles, draw tight,and weave in ends.
