This baby hat pattern is an easy way to work with two colours while making a sweet hat for baby.

Worked in the round, this hat is easy and fast to make, as it is knit with super bulky yarn.

Knitted Baby Hats

There are many baby hats to choose from in my baby pattern collection, from mommy and me matching ribbed beanies to Christmas hats.

You can make most of them in a range of sizes, from 0-3 months and up.

The baby knitting section also has many patterns for booties, toys and more.

Knitting In The Round

I made the hat using Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Fisherman (white) and knit on size 10.00mm (US 15) 16″ circulars.

I knit this hat in the round on circular needles, so there was no seaming involved, just a few loose ends to sew in at the end.

You could also knit this hat on DPN’s if it is your preference.

Knit Hat Patterns

I made the chunky beanie hat using two yarns –  Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn in Blossom (pink) for the accent colour and Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn in fisherman (white) for the main colour.

The yarns are both super bulky weight 06, so any yarn in that weight category will be fine to use.

You can make this hat in any colour combination you like!
