I am expecting a new Grandchild next September. I don't know if I am getting a Grandson, or a Granddaughter. So I knit this little baby hat With less then 1 skein of Peaches & Creme worsted weight cotton. The color is called Lemon Lime. Perfect baby colors!! I used size 3 needles and cast on 60 stitches. I knit a 1 x1 ribbing for 1 inch. Then I knit 1 row of K1, K1b. Row 2 is K1b, K1. I knit row 1 and row 2 until the hat measured 4 inches from the beginning of the hat. Then I started my decreases. I knit 8, k2tog around the hat. The next row I just knit. The next decrease row I knit 7, k2tog. Then I knit a row. I continued decreasing every other row, until I had 6 stitches left. Then I threaded the yarn through the last remaining stitches. Pulled the top closed and weaved the ends in. So very simple. And a Great little hat for my Grandbaby.
