Happy New Year

I've gotten one more hat done for Fairview Hospital:

Simple pattern:

With size 5 dpns (6 if you are a very tight knitter) CO 60 (divide them 14,16,14,16 so you will always start the next needle with a K; I find this helps me avoid ladders).

K1,P1 ribbing for 20 rows, st st for 2o rows.

Decrease for crown:

K5, K2tog around, K 1 row. (Do not worry if it doesn't come out quite even; fudge if necessary)

K4, K2tog around, K1 row

and so on, until K2tog around. Cut yarn, leaving enough of a tail to run through the stitches and pull tight. Weave in ends.

And here is the Baby Surprise Jacket I'm working on. Bernat Sweet Stripes and 4mm KnitPicks Harmony needles.

Darling hat Elizabeth!! And thanks so much for sharing the pattern too :) I can't wait to see your finished Baby Surprise Jacket. I've seen a lot of these lately and definitely want to make one someday too. That yellow is adorable!
