Free Newborn Hat Pattern –

This newborn hat pattern was designed using my handspun yarn.  It was knit from superwash merino dyed in my Gum Drops colorway and spun to the three gauges I offer for purchase on my website.  The ribbing was knit using my yarn spun thin.  The bumpy few rows (purl stitches) was knit using my yarn spun bulky. And the body of the beanie was knit from my yarn spun medium.  For the sake of this project I spun 6 oz. and will make 2-3 newborn hats from this yarn in different combinations.   Each 2 oz. was spun to bulky, medium and thin.

This is the basic hat pattern for my Mishmash hats.  You can change your needle and yarn size at your discretion and create a truly unique little hat!  Or you can decrease the top and make just the little bean.

2 oz. each of ilashdesigns superwash handspun, bulky, medium and thin.

US knitting needle sizes – 10.5, 15 and 11 – circulars
