Infant Nordic Ski Hat

Infant Nordic Ski Hat

For the infant cross-country skier in your life. It's a simple beanie style hat with ribbed brim and a jaunty Norwegian tassel.

I used Adriafil Knitcol from a local yarn shop, Knit on Pearl in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I used it because nothing says baby yarn like self-striping, superwash! Can you imagine tieing in all those ends? Yuck!

I created this pattern while searching for the perfect Nordic Ski Hat FOR ME--lightweight, sturdy and warm. Then I just modified it down to a baby version and knit this my Nordic Tassel hat for everyone in my entire family. We all have about 3 of them exactly like this in different yarns. Then I did this infant version for a friend's new delivery.

I CO60 for this and knit in the round starting with an inch or 2x2 ribbing. The tassel is attached by a little length of braid.

No problems at all. This hat took me one good length movie to knit.

Knitting for babies is the most satisfying knitting there is in my opinion. It's so fast it's practically istant gratification. And all new mom's love getting hand knit items for babies.
