202. Baby Boyfriend Hat

Knitting, project 202. Completed 11/3/2009

The “Ribbed Baby Hat” with wider ribs, a la the “Boyfriend Hat” pattern that I love so much, instead of K1P1 ribbing. Also a great way to use up 1 oz of worsted yarn.

PATTERN
Adapted from Ribbed Baby Hat by Sarah E. White on about.com

MADE FOR
Charity

SIZE
Newborn. Unstretched size is about 12.5 inches, will stretch to fit up to 15-inch head (newborn).

Yarn: 60 yards (just over 1 oz) worsted yarn for newborn size
1 oz (about 57.1 yds) leftover from 1 skein Plymouth Encore Worsted (75% acrylic, 25% wool), 200 yd per 100 g/3.5 oz skein. Color: 7138 (pink fade)

Knitting Needles: US G-7 (4.5 mm) double-pointed needles

Changed pattern to avoid single ribbing (K1, P1) by using (K3, P1) ribbing instead
