Knit Baby hat for beginners – Free Pattern

 

Knit Baby hat for beginners, free pattern for a newborn and for a 3/6 months old.

knit baby hat for beginners - Free knitting pattern. Beginners pattern to knit a baby hat, for a newborn and for a 3/6 months old.

*Disclosure

This pattern is great for beginners because it only uses the knit st, purl st, and knit 2 tog, which is just a modification f the basic knit stitch… ¬†It’s also knitted on the row instead of on the round, like most hat patterns. Also known as knitted flat, which means you don’t even need a circular needle or DPNs (double pointed needles).
So, if you’re not very comfortable knitting on the round just yet, this easy pattern will be perfect for you.
Hope you like this free knitting pattern ūüėÄ
