wheee....a hat for baby
by pamela w allen
you will need:
1-US15/ 10mm dpn's
1-16" circular, if desired
2 stitches per inch over stockinette in the round
With circular, or two dpn's, cast on 34 stitches. Work back and forth in garter stitch (knit every row) for 6 rows. Bind off 4 stitches, knit 30, then join to work in the round and continue to work in stockinette (knitting ever round) until work measures approximately 3”.
Decrease 5 stitches, every other round until you have 3 stitches on the needle as follows:
Round 1: Knit 4 k2tog; repeat to end of round...25 stitches remain.
Round 2: Knit.
Round 3: Knit 3 k2tog; repeat to end...20 stitches remain.
Round 4: Knit.
if using circular, change to dpn's...
Continue decreasing as established, 5 stitches every other round, until 5 stitches remain on the needles.
Knit 2 together, knit 1, knit 2 together...3 stitches remain.
Knit these 3 stitches in i-cord (stitch diva has a good tutorial online) for an inch-or-two. With your tapestry needle, pull yarn through the 3 stitches and thread to the inside of the i-cord. Leave cord as is, knot it, or add a "lazy knitter's tassel"(below).
lazy knitter's tassel:
Thread a darning needle with several strands of yarn, each about 12" long. Pull through the end of the i-cord stem halfway, then knot. Clip ends to desired length.
