Flat Knit Thick & Quick Toddler Hat- a beginner-friendly pattern for the coziest cold-weather hat!

Flat Knit Thick & Quick Toddler Hat

This hat is shaped so it covers baby’s ears and the back of the neck. It’s knit on straight needles using super bulky yarn. This hat can easily be knit in an evening and it’s the perfect winter accessory!

Note- if you’re new to knitting, there are a few abbreviations in this pattern that you might not be familiar with.

SSK- means “slip, slip, knit”. Slip 1 st, slip the next, then put left needle back into the slipped sts and knit them together. This will create a decrease leaning to the left.

M1- means “make 1 stitch”.  The make-one is performed in between two stitches, with the bar between the stitches. Lift this up and knit a new stitch.
