finishing baby hat
This is my first hat, well actually it is the first thing I have done that isn't rectangular! I am wondering how to finish with the Zig Zag so that when I sew it together so it doesn't have those little points at the top of the poor baby's head making it look like he has horns or something. Btw, I am not following a pattern, I knit stitched the whole thing and just want to know how to finish. pictures are very helpful (videos are even better) Thanks for all your help

(basic pattern: c.o. 40sts, knit all lines for about 3 inches... unfinished. btw, I am using puffy baby yarn)

Hi and welcome to KH!

I would prolly look up other baby hat patterns that are knit flat and see how they were worked...just to get an idea on how you would like to do it

Did you do any decreasing toward the top? You can do that with hats that are knit flat too, and it gives a rounded top.
