I knitted a fair isle hat and a pair of socks for my almost 4mo old nephew.
I used "Flakey Baby Socks pattern" by annypurls for the socks and whipped up the matching hat pattern using same yarn.
He is super cute wearing them!! :D
- 4 x 4.0mm DPNs or 1 long circular needle for magic loop (I did the magic loop)
- Fingering weight yarns in 2 different colors(I used FibraNatura Baby Merino) - each less than 25g (less than 1oz)
- 1 stitch marker, tapestry needle
With color A (green in this case) CO 96 sts, join to knit in round placing a stitch marker at the beginning of a row.
(I do this instead of k2, p2 all around, because it hides beginning and ending point better.)
Join color B (white) and knit each row of below chart 6 times.
Thread the tail through a tapestry needle and go through all remaining 12 sts.
Secure the sts and leave the tail yarn to sew the pompom on later.
CO 15sts work 5 rows in st st.Row1(RS): sl1, ssk, k to last 3sts, k2tog, k1.Row2(WS): sl1, purl across.
Rep these two rows until 3sts are left.
Knit I-Cord with the remaining 3sts to make chin straps.
Make 2 ear flaps and sew them on the bottom hem of the hat.
Make a pompom ( you can get directions from the web) and sew it on at the top of the hat.
(You can block it before you sew the pompom on if you want)
