baby hat pattern straight needles

 

This hat pattern is for newborn to 3 months old baby and you’ll be knitting it in flat. This means back and forth. With straight needles.

Fairly easy knitting project – only challenge is cable decor. But you know you want it.

I kind of liked to knit this way – from side to side (and I think I want to develop this kind of pattern for grown ups too) but there is a downside.
