My own patterns for two tiny preemie hats w/pics
I made these for the Compassionate Knitting Project KAL and thought I would share. I wrote these out for use with the yarn I used, so I don't know how they will work with other yarns, but feel free to try it out and let me know how it works! This is the first time I've written any patterns, so feel free to ask any questions or point out mistakes.

Spiraled Eyelet hat

Finished size about 8 circumference (unstretched)
Note: this yarn is very stretchy so this hat will have a LOT of give!
Materials:
Patons Katrina worsted weight yarn
4 size 6 DPNs

Cast on 44 sts. Join being careful not to twist sts. K2 P2 rib for 5-6 rnds.
Next rnd: *K 1, K2 tog, YO*, repeat between *s ending with K2 tog.
Repeat last rnd except move the pattern over 1 st each round so the YOs are moved one st to the left each rnd to get the spiral effect. Continue until as tall as you would like to the upper crown of hat.
Decrease rnd: keeping the YOs in pattern, eliminate the K1 and just do the K2 tog and YOs. Repeat this rnd 2-3 times more.
Next rnd: K1, K 2tog. Repeat this rnd once more.
Next rnd: K2 tog around (dont worry if you end up with and extra plain K st) what you want to end up with is 3 sts, so if you dont get that with this rnd, do one more dec rnd to get to 3 sts. I cord these 3 sts for about 3/8 inch and then decrease by K 2 tog down to one st and bind it off. I then took the top of this and folded it down to the base of the I cord and pulled the yarn through to the inside and secured it so it made a fake knot looking thing on the top. Weave in ends.


Eyelet cable and rib hat

Finished size about 7 circumference (unstretched)
Note: this yarn is stretchy and has a lot of give, so this hat will stretch a LOT!
Materials:
Patons Katrina yarn
4 size 6 DPNs

Cast on 40 sts, distribute evenly on 3 needles. Join, being careful not to twist sts.
First rnd: *K 1, P 2, K 3, P 2*, repeat between *s around.
Second rnd: *K1, P 2, slip 1 st purlwise, K 2, psso, P2* repeat between *s around.
Third rnd: *K 1, P2, K1, YO, K 1, P 2*, repeat between *s around.
Fourth rnd: Repeat first rnd.
Repeat rnd 1-4 until desired length to upper crown of hat.
Dec rnd: Keeping in pattern, P 2 tog where it calls for P 2.
Work 3-4 rnds even keeping in pattern (P 1 where you P 2 tog in last rnd).
Next rnd: Keeping eyelet cable in pattern, P 3 tog each P 1, K 1, P 1 sequence in the rnd.
Work 3-4 rnds even keeping in pattern (P 1 where you P 3 tog in last rnd). You want the next rnd to be a round where you make the fake cable twist with slip 1 st purlwise, K 2, psso. Instead of K 2, you will K2 tog in this sequence. You should have about 10 sts left. Break yarn leaving a 6 inch tail and with a tapestry needle thread it through the last sts and pull tog and secure on inside. Weave in ends.



Hope these work out for anyone who tries them!

Thanks so much for posting these patterns. The hats are just georgous and I'm looking forward to making some from these patterns! I haven't been knitting for very long, so I'm always amazed when people can come up with their own patterns.

Great job!

Pattern
Have you made this pattern for larger kids? I was thinking about making you pattern maybe 50% larger? It would make a beautiful little girl's hat! Please let me know if you have these patterns larger.

I have only made the ones pictured and then wrote the pattern out according to how I made them. To make them, I just took how many stitches I needed for the pattern stitch repeat and multiplied it by however many times I needed to get the circumference I needed. I didn't have to be very precise because the yarn was so stretchy that made it even easier. The top decreases I just made up as I went along however it looked good. I hope that helps a little, and let me know if I can help any more.

Those are great!!!
I would love to make these a little bigger for my girls (3 & 1 years). If anyone can figure out the pattern to make these into toddler hats, I would love to use the pattern. I have only been knitting about a year and trying to change patterns makes my head spin.
