Organic Sweet and Funky Baby Hat Fun Dreadlocks on Top of Hat

For this Funky Baby Hat I started with a very basic baby hat pattern and modified it to create a special hat for a crazy and funky friend of mine's baby!


I used size 8 Addi Turbo Circulars that I purchased at a local yarn chop and size 8 DPN's that I had that belonged to my Grandmother!

Since the pattern WAS very basic, I got creative with striping and added some fun "dreadlocks", a technique I learned while watching "Knitty Gritty" one day.

Here's a link to the basic hat pattern I used. It's on Ravelry, and if you aren't a free member, you NEED to join because it's a great place for free patterns and SO much more!

I switched colors and added a few "purl" rows near the top, but the major difference is that I added a row of "dreadlock" type twisties after I was done the brim and then a bunch at the top! I learned how to make these while I was watching an episode of "Knitty Gritty" years ago! The free twistie pattern is also on Ravelry.

You can use the fun twisties for all sorts of things once you know how to do it! They are REALLY easy too! So... get out there and GET CREATIVE!!!

I knit it up in an afternoon and had no problems with the process! It was super fun!!

I gave this to my friend at her baby shower, along with a pair of socks knit with the red color, and she was in love!!! I wish I had a photo of her daughter in it, because she was WAY cuter than the hat!!

While you say basic I have no idea what that means. I'm just getting started with knitting. I'd love it if you shared a pattern.
