Baby Brewer Hat Pattern / /
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE!
Yarn: Aran, 50g (my choice being Quince & Co.’s Osprey)
Needles: US 9 – 5.5mm circular or double-pointed needles
Gauge: 4 sts in garter stitch = 1 in.
Sizes: 6-12 months
BO: bind off
CO: cast on
k2tog : knit 2 together
pm: place marker
ssk: slip slip knit
CO: 64 sts, pm
Rounds 1-8: k1, p1
Round 9: k
Round 10: p
Repeat rows 9 & 10 until your piece measures 7 in. from the CO row, ending with a P round. For more slouch measure an extra inch or two before decrease.
Decrease starting with a K round:
Round 1: k5, k2tog, k2, ssk, * k10, k2tog, k2, ssk *, repeat in ** until last 5 sts, k5
Round 2: p
Round 3: k4, k2tog, k2, ssk * k8, k2tog, k2, ssk *, repeat in ** until last 4 sts, k4
Round 4: p
Round 5: (k1, k2, k3, k4), k2tog, k2, ssk * k6, k2tog, k2, ssk *, repeat in ** until las 3 sts, k3
Round 6: p
Repeat in this pattern until there are 16 sts left, and BO.
Weave in ends and add pompom or tassel. Embellish as you wish!
If you wish to add stripes, I recommend starting in contrasting color immediately after the 1×1 ribbing; always starting the stripe on a K row and ending with a P row.
