Knotted Newborn Hat

Knotted Newborn Hat

Knit as a gift for a friend's newborn in Rowan 4-ply Soft.

Knotted Newborn Hat

1 Skein Rowan 4-ply Soft
#3 double pointed needles (set of 5)

Gauge to match label on Rowan 4-ply (I'll update another time)

Cast on 86 stitches
Knit 6 rows (creates rolled edge)
Purl 6 rows (creates second bump at edge)

Continue to knit in the round until it measures 7cm or 2-¾ inches.

Begin decrease:
Row 1: knit 12, knit 2 together; repeat 6 times then knit the two remaining stitches
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: knit 11, knit 2 together; repeat 6 times then knit the two remaining stitches
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: knit 10, knit 2 together; repeat 6 times then knit the two remaining stitches
Continue decreases on every odd row and straight knit on every even row until there are 20 stitches left.
Knit 2 together then knit the next 2 together and repeat until there are 8 stitches remaining on 3 needles.

Knit the remaining 8 stitches as an i-cord (using 2-3 needles) until tube measures 3-4 inches long.
Cast off and weave ends in.
Tie a knot with the i-cord
Finished!
