Action Baby Hat

Looking around the internet, I had a really hard time finding a small hat pattern that uses a super-bulky yarn (that I have left over from the Cotton Candy sweater). I figured I would type it up to save myself (or someone else) the math to figure it out again. I tend to knit somewhat tightly, so if you do not you may find that you need to go down a needle size. This pattern takes just one 50 g skein.

Needles: US 17 / 12.75 mm
Yarn: N.Y. Yarns Action, a super-bulky yarn
Gauge: 8.5 sts/4 "
Finished Circumference: 18" (suitable for 12-18 month old)

Cast on 38 sts, and join into the round, careful not to twist.
Place marker at the start of the round and work in 1X1 rib for 1.5".
On the next round, increase 1 st and k to end. (39 sts)
Work in stockinette for 5.25" before beginning decreases.

Decreases:
k4 *k2tog k3* (32 sts)
k even
*k2tog k2* (24 sts)
k even
*k2tog k1* (16 sts)
k even
*k2tog* (8 sts)

Cut yarn, leaving at least an 8" tail. Using a tapestry needle, draw tail through remaining stitches. Pull tight and weave in ends on the inside.

I had some super bulky yarn from a grab bag I'd purchased at my LYS, so I went looking for a pattern on Ravelry and found yours. I wanted something I could make with a single ball and this was the perfect thing. I knit your pattern this afternoon and I'm very pleased with the results.

Quick, easy and cute. I added a flower to the side to add a girly touch. Only problem I had was it seems a little large for a toddler even though I sized down on needles and knit fairly tight.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I love the pattern. I will be using this pattern for hats for children of families who cannot afford to buy them.

Made this with a partial skein of Patons Beehive Baby Chunky yarn and size 15 needles. Added a pom pom. It fits a 2 year old. Thanks for this sweet pattern!
