Long Tail Baby Hat Knitting Pattern for Thick Thin Hand Spun Yarn

PLEASE NOTE: This is a set of instructions, not the physical object. Once you have paid, you will receive an email with instructions for downloading your pattern pdf, along with 3 other files:
1) yarn and needle terminology and equivalents
2) how to make your own double-pointed needles
3) newborn photography and digital editing tips

This is the second in a new series of knitting patterns featuring the hand dyed 100% Merino wool yarn of fellow Etsian 1AZColorworks, available in a full range of glorious colorways. Make yours with a contrasting brim or not, ribbed or not. Lots of possibilities.

You can make your yarn selections here:

***IMPORTANT*** Once you have entered the 1AZColorworks Etsy shop, do a shop search for "TTS 55" to be sure that you are getting the right thickness of wool. This stands for "thick thin slub, 55 yards per 1.8 ounces." What is a shop search? Just like a google search, type in the words in the box at the top of the page. The words just to the left of the box should read "This Shop." If in doubt, you may send a message to the 1AZC shop owner, and tell her Angie sent you, or send a message to me.

Sizes given: Preemie, Newborn, 3-6 month, 6-12 month, Toddler, and Child.

Depending on whether you knit tightly or loosely, this pattern calls for a US size 13 (9 mm) or 15 (10 mm) circular needle and the same size double-pointed needles. You will be surprised how quickly you can make a seamless adorable hat, perfect for a photo prop for baby's first pictures.

Customer service is important to me, and I am available to coach you through anything you don't understand. I often send links to my favorite video online demos. (Someday I'll make my own.)

I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have, regarding this or any of my patterns or other photo prop needs.

Many thanks to Emily Wolowiec, who knit the adorable pink,red and white hat, and to her photographer friend, Andrea Peardon.
