I have made twice. The first time with stretchy yarn and it was not long enough. The second time with soft baby yarn and it was too big...??? Can not figure out how to cut pattern down...

Made this hat once and it was not big enough for a 2 month old...I am trying again and knitting it longer so it will cover ears at least...hope it works.

Hi, in the comments one knitter mentioned using dk yarn, how does compare, in weight, to worsted 4 ply. Thanks you. Nora

Hello everyone, To print this pattern, please click on the link that says "click here for knitting pattern." Then, you should be able to print directly from the site or blog where the pattern is from. If you would like to print just the text and images of the pattern, try highlighting the pattern and pictures and then copy and paste that information into a blank Word document. Instead of printing from the site, print directly from the Word document. I hope this helps. Thank you, Editors of AllFreeKnitting

To stchr3247 - could you please e-mail this baby hat pattern? I have tried for days to get it to print with no success . I have a new granddaughter just waiting for this hat!! Thank you very much.

Could someone please tell me how to get this pattern to print. I am getting the same results as the entry above - a picture of the hat and then a magazine subscription form. I would dearly love to knit this for my new granddaughter.
