To knit 1 beanie you will need:

Yarn – a 50g ball knits approx 4

Knitting needles: metric size 4mm – Old English 8 – US 6

Needle to sew up the seam.

Instructions:

Cast on 48,[50,52,54,56,58] stitches.

Work 8,[8,8,10,10,12] rows in K1 P1 moss stitch alternating as follows;

Row 1 K1, P1 across

Row 2 P1, K1 across

Next, work 20 rows in stockinette stitch as follows;

R1, 3, 5 and all odd rows Knit across row,

R2, 4, 6 and all even rows Purl across row

End on the right side.

To shape crown and decrease:

work next 6 rows as follows: (*please note the numbers don’t always work out
evenly.)

Row1:   K2, K2tog across row

Row2:   Purl across row

Row3:   K1, K2tog across row

Row4:   P2, P2 tog across row

Row5:   K2tog across row

Row 6:   Cast off in Knit leaving a long tail for sewing up the edge.

To assemble:

Thread the tapestry needle with the long tail.

Turn the beanie inside out.

At the crown slip the needle through the inside edge of the stitches that you have cast off and pull the crown gently together in a circular shape.

Next, keeping the beanie inside out, butt the edges together and sew them together working down towards the brim in mattress stitch. You may find it easier to do this if you use a couple of small safety pins to hold the beanie together as you sew.

Tie off and work in both loose ends of yarn for a couple of stitches.

Turn the beanie in the right way to reveal an almost seamless join and a gorgeous little Baby Beanie! xx
