Baby Fisherman’s Cap Free 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.
