This adorable, easy, soft baby hat was made for my nephew, Brennan for his 2nd birthday. He loves bright colors and I chose blue and green stripes to complement the square nature of the hat.

I used size 7 needles that I inherited from a friends years ago and I used Caron Simply Soft Acrylic yarn. i chose it for its softness and with the concern that my sister-in-law would need to be able to wash anything belonging to a two-year old boy.

I developed the pattern myself. I knit a gauge swatch, got the measurement for the circumference of my nephew's head. did a little math and started knitting in the round. I began with a 2x2 ribbed band to prevent rolling, knit until it was as tall as it was wide and then grafted the top in a straight line to produce a seamless top.

This Flat Hat is simple, took me approximately 8 hours (an another 45 minutes to graft) and gave me no trouble at all.

This Flat Hat is adorable when worn. The tips of the top flop a bit and make it so cute on little kids.
