I have no experience in knitting in the round but I am trying on a baby hat and its tougher than I thought. .. I was wondering could I just not connect it and knit it flat then seam the hat at the end?
I am really trying to find an easy cute knitted beanie type hat for baby's for all occasions. Maybe ruffles at the bottom for girls and plain beanie style for a boy.
Here is the pattern:
Yarn: scraps of Lamb's Pride worsted
Needles: US size 10.5 circulars and dpns. Switch to dpns whenever it becomes necessary.
Cast on 224, and join.
Round 1: K2tog
Round 2: k2tog
Total 56 stitches remain
Knit until hat measures about 3.25" including ruffle.
Decrease for the crown as follows:
Decrease round 1: (k2tog, k5) repeat to end.
Round 2: Knit
Round 3: (k2tog, k4) repeat to end.
Round 4: Knit
Round 5: (k2 tog, k3) repeat to end.
Round 6: Knit
Round 7: (k2tog, k2) repeat to end.
Round 8: Knit
Round 9: (k2tog, k1) repeat to end.
Round 10: Knit
Round 11: K2 tog
Thread yarn through remaining stitches and pull to close.
