About The Baby Fisherman’s Cap Knitting Pattern

The size of newborn babies’ heads defies prediction. When my doctor could give me zero guidance on how big my twin’s heads would be, I designed this hat to cover all my bases.

This super stretchy hat design fits a wide range of tiny heads from 9 to 15.5 inches / 22 to 40 cm circumference. The hat favors babies on the small side of average, which makes it a great pattern for knitting hats for your local hospital or premie charity.

The brim rolls up easily, allowing for a variety of depths, and the cute peaked crown hides the temporary cone-heads and funny skull shapes that frequently afflict the newest members of the human family. Worked in a two-by-two rib with decreases that form lovely arches, this hat is simple, stylish, and truly unisex.
