Baby Hat in Waving Rib
Knit with #5 dpns and TLC Baby Sport, should fit a newborn.
Cast on 72 sts (16-20-16-20) and work 2 1/2" in k2p2 rib in the round.
This pattern is a multiple of 6, and now you need to shift your stitches to (18-18-18-18).
Rnd1-4 *k4, p2*
Rnd5-8 k1, *p2, k4* end k3
I repeated the pattern 3 times, 24 rounds. Your hat should measure between 5 and 5 1/2" from the cast on edge.
Shift 4 sts so each needle begins with 2 p sts (of rnd1), and begin decreasing.
Rnd1 *p2, k1, k2tog, k1*
Rnd2 *p2, k1, k2tog*
Rnd3 *p2, k2tog*
Rnd4 *p1, k2tog*
Rnd6 *k1, k2tog, k1*
You have 9 sts left, finish off.
