Knitting hats for newborns
- With 3.5 mm needles, dial the number of loops that will correspond to the size of the head of a child of the age of three months - then it will last for a long time. This is approximately 35-37cm. Make the calculation depending on the thickness of the yarn.
- Knit a rectangle in this pattern: alternate purl and front loops to the end of the row, do the same on the next row. You will get boucle knitting. For newborns, knitting caps should be knitted in such a way that they are very soft and pleasant to the touch. Therefore, be very careful in your choice.yarn. It is advisable to use natural fibers. Products should not have rough seams.
- After you knit 4 cm with a rice pattern, start alternating: 1st row - all front loops, 2nd row - all purl. So knit another 5 cm.
- Start shaping the crown. The pattern for a knitted hat for a child is similar to the knitting pattern for an adult hat: divide the number of loops into 6 parts. Continue knitting, but through the row in each part, knit together 2 loops of the front. Thus, the canvas will decrease by 6 loops in every second row. Gradually, only 6 loops will remain, which should be knitted together.
- Fix the thread and decorate the hat with decorative elements to your liking.
Children's hats with a funny knot on top look very cute. How to make it? After the knitting of the hats for newborns with knitting needles is completed, the last 6 loops should not be closed immediately, as in the previous model. Continue knitting the "cord" in stocking stitch. On the sides, the canvas will fold, resembling a tube. Knit about 8 cm and cast off. Tie a knot.
In addition, this model has a lapel, which is obtained due to the fact that the height of the rectangular part of the cap is increased by the desired amount of lapel. This approach is very practical - as the size of the cap can be adjusted as the child grows. Also, the lapel is useful if the knitted fabric suddenly stretches.- no need to bandage the item.
