Baby roll-brim knit hat

Alternate 2 rows blue with 2 rows white

Here is the pattern for the baby version of the classic roll-brim hat. It's pretty much the same as the adult, but smaller. :) Takes about 3 hours start to finish - not bad!

You'll need: 
Size 8 needles, preferably long ones
Baby yarn (I'm currently using Bernat Baby and I've used the Caron Super Soft and they are awesome!) 

Cast on 56 stitches
Work in stockinette (knit a row, purl a row) until piece measures about 4 1/2 to 5 inches, depending on size of baby. 
Decrease as follows:

Modeled by a pumpkin :)
1. *K6, k2tog, repeat to end
2. Purl
3. *K5, k2tog, repeat
4. Purl
5. *K4, k2tog, repeat
6. Purl
7. *K3, k2tog, repeat
8. Purl
9. *K2, k2tog, repeat
10. Purl
11. *K1, k2tog, repeat
12. Purl
13. *K1, k2tog, repeat

Cut your yarn long (~18 inches) and thread it through a needle. Then slip the needle back through the loops still on your knitting needle, draw tight, sew down your seam, and voila! Baby hat!
