Basket Stitch Baby Hat Knitting Pattern #303

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 the pattern PDF, along with 2 other files:
1) yarn and needle terminology and equivalents
2) newborn photography and digital editing tips

This is a knitting pattern for making this adorable hat yourself! (Think! Who do you know that's a knitter?) Actually, with all the videos on YouTube, there's no excuse for not learning any more!

Instructions are given for knitting the hat in three sizes:
Newborn (for head size 14 to 16 in. / 36-40 cm)
Larger baby (for head size 16 to 18 in. / 40-45 cm)
Toddler (for head size 18 to 20 in. / 45-50 cm)

I specialize in clear, thorough instructions, and coaching is included! I have even made a You
Tube video demonstrating this stitch pattern. Directions for viewing that are included in the pattern.

This is the third 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. If you have not knit with this type of soft, spongy yarn, you are in for a treat! Colors pictured are Natural and Brown, with the flower formed with a couple of yards of Rose Bronze. 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.

This is knit flat (back and forth) with large knitting needles. This pattern stitch is not really a beginner stitch, so if you are a true newbie, please try one of my other patterns first.

Permission is granted to sell hats knitted from this pattern.

You may email me with questions, now and as you knit.

Many thanks to my own wonderful daughter Elizabeth Peck for these wonderful photographs!
