Christmas is Coming!

Things are going to be a little slower around here since I'm knitting a lot of things right now for people who read my site, and might stumble into their Christmas presents! I do want to record one thing for myself, though...

In order to make a newborn Roll Brim Baby hat on a #6 circular needle with worsted weight yarn, use this pattern:

Cast on 56 stitches, and join.

K all stitches, all rows.

When the work measures 4.5 - 5 inches (with brim unrolled), move work to double-pointed needles and begin decreasing:

K6, K2TOG, repeat around
K5, K2TOG, repeat around
K4, K2TOG, repeat around
K3, K2TOG, repeat around
K2, K2TOG, repeat around
K1, K2TOG, repeat around
K2TOG, repeat around

You will have 7 stitches remaining. Continue knitting until this "tail" is long enough to tie into the top-knot. Bind off, and weave in ends.
