Twisted Cuff Baby Hat
I made one of these last summer.
The pattern I used is no longer available, so I created my own. The internet is a marvelous place. I found the measurements for baby hats here. There is a video on how to do the twisted garter cuff here. A three stitch i-cord tutorial is here.
Twisted Cuff Baby Hat
Needles: 2 - 2.5 mm straight needles
5 - 2.5 mm double pointed needles
5 - 3.25 mm double pointed needles
Yarn : About 20 - 25 gm. of sock yarn (fingering)
Using the 2.5 mm straight needles, cast on 100 stitches, leaving a tail to sew the seam later. Knit 5 rows of garter stitch (knit every row). Next row, twist the stitches, as shown on the video.
Continuing to work flat, begin K2 P2 ribbing, transferring the stitches to the double pointed needles, either as you go, or after you have completed this row. (24, 24, 24, 28). Join in a circle and continue the ribbing for a total of 10 rounds.
Change to the 3.25 mm needles and knit even for 3.5 inches. (9 cm.)
Decrease Round 1: *K8, K2 tog. Repeat to the end of the round.
Round 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14: Knit
Round 3: * K7, K2 tog. Repeat to the end of the round.
Round 5: * K6, K2 tog. Repeat to the end of the round.
Round 7: * K5, K2 tog. Repeat to the end of the round.
Round 9: * K4, K2 tog. Repeat to the end of the round.
Round 11: * K3, K2 tog. Repeat to the end of the round.
Round 13: * K2, K2 tog. Repeat to the end of the round.
Round 15: * K1, K2 tog. Repeat to the end of the round.
Round 16: *K2 tog. to the end of the round (10 stitches)
Round 17: *K2 tog. to the end of the round (5 stitches)
Round 18: K2 tog., K1, K2 tog. (3 stitches)
Knit a 3 stitch i-cord for about 2.5 inches.
Cut the thread and run it through the stitches, pulling them tight and finish securely. Tie a knot in the i-cord. Using the beginning tail, close the seam in the garter twist cuff.
