Newborn Ribbed Hat Knitting Pattern- a classic design in a fun self-striping yarn!
It should come as no surprise that I can’t stop knitting things for River! This Newborn Ribbed Hat Knitting Pattern is a basic design that lets the yarn shine. I used Loops & Threads Facets Stones which comes in really beautiful colorways. It’s medium weight and so soft! This pattern uses double point needles, other than that it’s pretty simple to knit. The wide ribbing ensures that the hat fits well and it stays on little heads.
The ad-free, printable version of this pattern is available at Shop Gina Michele for a small fee.
