Where can I find a baby girl's hat to knit 3 to 6 or 9 months? I have been looking but mostly all are 0 to 3 months.
I did knit caps for twins but they were only worn for a month because they grew so fast I guess. One was a boy other a girl.
I knitted a babies hat from Cottage Industry, the pattern is sweetpea baby set, but I need to knit something called 'monk's cord' which attaches/sewn to the corners of the hat. My question is What is Monk's Cord/how is this knitted?
I am presently working on a Debbie Bliss Striped Hat pattern. I am doing the pattern for ages 3-9 months. Instead of doing stiping I am using a variegated yarn on US #3 Needle; CO 92 sts; begin with Knit row and work 14 rows in stockinette stitch; then the pattern instructs you to continue knitting in this pattern until it measures 14 inches from cast on edge to purl row. After the 14 inches you begin to shape crown and decrease for 16rows and in between those rows you are purling one row so in essence you are added another 32 rows. I am using self-pattern Zitron Lifestyle yarn that is usually used for socks.
My question is that 14" is way too long for a child's head. The cast on edge will roll slightly, but not enough to shorten all 14 inches.
I am thinking of not knitting so many inches. Any suggestions or ideas would be helpful. I think this hat would be much too large for a 9 month old.
