There’s always a need for baby hat patterns, especially if you’re an avid knitter. After all, it seems like someone is always having a baby and just about everyone appreciates a beautifully knit hat — especially if it’s a fun and whimsical baby sun hat, or a super cute frog to perch on baby’s head. So enjoy these baby hat knitting patterns, and remember: you can always expand them for adult use! 1. Just Ducky Hat This is one of my all time favorite baby knit patterns: an adorable ‘ducky’ hat (literally, a duck’s head) with matching webbed socks. I mean, this could almost double as a Halloween costume, but it’s still useful enough to wear out (at least if you’re less than a foot tall). Everyone melts when they see this pattern. 2. Baby Rollin’ Beret Got a friend who finds most baby knit patterns a little too conventional for her taste? A baby rollin’ beret will be right up her alley. Not only does this cute hat keep baby’s head warm, it gives them that avant-garde edge right from the get-go. 3. Worsted Baby Hat Not into all these wacky baby hat patterns? That’s okay! There are lots of very cute, perfectly acceptable patterns that fit a more traditional style, too — like this worsted-weight baby hat pattern. It’s warm, cute, and understated, so that it goes with anything and doesn’t make baby stand out like a piece of abstract art. 4. Beginner’s Fair Isle Hat This is a fantastic baby pattern if you’ve never knit fair isle before, or you’re just not very confident in your abilities. It has that pretty two toned pattern you get with any fair isle pattern, but it’s a very easy pattern with beginners in mind. 5. Blue Rabbit Hat The blue rabbit hat is my all time favorite baby hat knitting pattern, first of all because I love rabbits, but secondly because it’s just so darn cute. Blue bunnies show off their fuzzy tails all around the hat’s border, giving it just the right edge of too cute for words without becoming overstated. An instant classic! Getting bored? Time to start knitting! And with these baby hat patterns, once you start, you won’t want to stop.
