Bunny Baby Hat Knitting Pattern

Bunny Baby Hat Free Knitting Pattern

     We’ve had a few nice days and it’s totally putting me in the mood for all things Spring! My daffodils are even poking up which I view as the unofficial sign that winter is over. I wanted to knit a hat for Indigo that was medium weight and Spring appropriate. The first thing that came to mind was “Bunny!” This Bunny Baby Hat knitting pattern will be perfect for Easter!
This Bunny Hat is knit using worsted weight yarn. The ears are knit separately and the eyes and nose are stitch on after the hat is made which makes this an easy project. I crocheted the eyes, but you can use black buttons if you prefer.
I hope you guys like the pattern- happy knitting!

Yarn: Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Linen

Needles: Size US 8 circular, 16 inch

Size US 8 single point

Also needed:
Pink worsted weight yarn
Black worsted weight yarn
White worsted weight yarn
Crochet hook size I
Yarn needle

Use the yarn needle to stitch the nose on the center bottom of the hat. To make the eyes, crochet in a circle for 3 rounds. If you don’t know how to crochet, you can use black buttons for the eyes.

    Probably everyone else knows what you mean but …
    Decrease round 1: knit 2 tog
    Decrease Round 1: Knit 4, knit 2 together. Repeat across round
    There are two "round 1s" listed. Is the first one a typo, should it be ignored? Thanks !!
