This beanee fits newborn to six months with a head circumference
of up to 18 inches.
Gauge: 6 sts = 1 inch, 8 rows = 1 inch
Materials needed: 100 yards DK weight yarn & US size 5 Double Pointed needles required. (1 Addi Turbo 16 inch circular needle is also very helpful if you have used them before, but I would not recommend them for a new knitter.)

Note: Since each yarn is unique, it is strongly recommended that you knit a swatch and make sure it is the proper gauge. Your gauge may also depend on how tightly you knit. If you are a tight knitter you may need to use a larger gauge needle and if you are a loose knitter, you may need to use a smaller gauge needle.

Cast on 80 sts. Join ends
K2 p2 for 50 rows
Leaving a 24 inch tail, cut yarn and with a yarn needle use the kitchner stitch to graft the top of the hat. Weave in loose ends,
embellish with pompoms and your done! Now you can put it on your favorite baby's head..
