Knitted Baby Hat - Unisex Gnomey Baby Hat

When knitting baby clothes, sometimes it's hard to find good unisex designs that will fit either a boy or a girl. I chose this Ravelry pattern for a Gnomey Baby Hat.

I CO 60st using Chunky yarn as I was planning to use it when the baby is a few months old, which would have been winter time.

I did 1 inch garter border, then knit in round till 4 inch.

I decreased as per instructions except accidentally only did one knit row between decrease rows instead of the ones recommended, so the hat is less “gnomey”.

I ended decreasing with 6 st, which I knitted for a few rounds and then ended with Just a Leaf pattern, also from Ravelry.

Then I added ear flaps as per instructions, decreased to 3 st and finished with 12 inch icords, as from experience I prefer to tie baby hats on, so that stay in place on a wriggly baby.

Hat diameter ended up about 16 inch which was perfect for a bigger baby.
