Hi everyone welcome to my channel knitting for  baby thank you for watching and thank you for  

subscribing in today's tutorial i'm going to show  you how to knit this little hat for a baby from  

zero to three months now in the same tutorial i  also show you how to knit this one here this one  

is for three to six months size and they're both  very easy to make okay so let's get started and  

thank you for watching okay to begin i'll be using  these five millimeter knitting needles and today  

i'm using this medium number four yarn i'm using  yarn bee soft and sleek this is a medium number  

four yarn and i'm using this light blue color  to make the three to six months size i used  

the pink color in the same yarn brand now the  first thing that we need to do is we need to  

cast on our stitches so i'm going to show you how  to cast on your stitches using the long tail cast  

on so here to begin for the zero to three  months size we need to cast on 54 stitches  

if you're making it bigger for three to six  months then you need to cast on 62 stitches so  

we're going to cast on 54 for the zero to three  month size so to cast on your stitches using the  

long tail cast on we need to determine how much  yarn we need to leave for our long tail so what  

i like to do is i like to wrap my yarn around  like this 20 times you can do 10 times or you  

can do 20. i like to do 20. so that's 3 4  5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20.

so here we have enough yarn for about  20 stitches so if we double it up  

that's 40 and if we double it up again that's  60. now i need 52 so uh i'm just going to leave  

it like this i'm probably going to have a nice  long tail left but that's okay so if you're doing  

62 then i would do do the 60 like this and maybe a  little bit more so for me i'm just going to do it  

like this maybe a little bit less so right about  there now we're going to make a slip knot here  

like this and we're going to put this yarn here  on this side and this here is coming from the  

skein now insert both needles through this  loop now we're going to insert both needles  

because the first row is always the hardest when  you do it this way your stitch is bigger and  

you have a nice and loose beginning  row here so which is what we need  

for these hats so now we're going to insert our  finger like this through the middle open up your  

yarn and we're going to go from left to right and  we're going to grab a loop like this that's two

three four

five six seven eight nine ten and so on you're  going to continue until you have 54 stitches  

on your needles if you're making it for three  to six months size then until you have 62.  

continue and i'll meet you once this part here  is done to show you what we need to do next  

okay i finished casting on 54 stitches and this  is all the yarn that i had left so you may want  

to leave a little tiny more just in case so  here we're just going to tie a little knot here  

and we're going to remove one of the needles so  gently pull one of them like this and now we have  

our 54 stitches if you're making it for  three to six months then you should have  

62 so now what we're going to do here for the  first row is i'm going to knit the first stitch  

and then i'm going to purl  the next two knit the next two

purl the next two

knit the next two

purl the next two  

this is all i'm going to do all the way to the end  now at the end we're going to have one stitch left  

and that one last stitch we are going to always  always purl i have two border stitches here the  

first stitch we're always going to slip from here  on and the last stitch we're always going to purl

now continue like this for this first row  knit two purl two all the way to the end  

so i'll meet you at the end of this first row i'm  here at the end of this first row these last two  

stitches here i knit so this one here at the end  we are always going to purl now this is the first  

row now we're going to turn for the second row and  we're going to repeat the same thing now from here  

on we're always going to slip the first stitch  like this and we're going to purl the next two  

one and two and we're going to knit the next two

purl two knit two and that's all we're going to do  always knit two purl two and so on continue to the  

end of this second row at the end of this second  row remember the last stitch we are going to purl  

okay continue and i'll meet you at the end i'm  here at the end of the second row remember this  

last stitch we always purl now turn for the third  row and from here on this is all we're going to  

repeat the exact same thing we're going to do this  for the zero to three months size until we have  

40 rows for the three to six month size you're  going to do it until about 44 rows so here again  

we're going to slip the first stitch like this  and we're going to purl the next two stitches

knit the next two

purl the next two

knit the next two purl the next two

knit two purl two knit two purl two all the way  to the very end now remember that once you get  

here to the end this last stitch you're going  to purl always then you're going to turn slip  

the first stitch and then repeat the same  thing for every row now continue like this  

repeating this same row until you have 40 rows for  the zero to three month size or for three to six  

months you're going to do 44 rows so continue  and i'll meet you at the end of the 40th row  

okay i finished making 40 rows and it's measuring  about 18 centimeters which is about seven inches  

now for the three to six months size um i did 46  rows i had forgotten that i had done 46 rows so  

if you did 44 or if you want to add two more it's  okay with 46 rows the three to six months size it  

should be measuring about eight inches or about  20.5 centimeters at this point so now we're going  

to continue and we're going to reduce for the  next three rows so here to do the reduction what  

i'm going to do is we're going to slip the first  stitch and i'm going to purl the next two stitches

and the next two i'm going to knit together  like this these are actually the two knit  

stitches so i'm going to knit two together  here so the pearls we're going to purl  

and then the two knit stitches here one and  two we're going to knit two together like this

now purl and then knit two together this is  how i'm going to continue for this row so  

continue on omich at the end i'm here at the end  of this first row reduction the last stitch here  

i'm going to purl now turn and we're going to  go back and we're going to slip the first stitch  

i'm going to purl the next stitch and i'm going  to knit the next two so purl and then knit two

purl and knit two continue like this for  this row and i'll meet you at the end i'm  

here at the end this last stitch i am going to  purl and this is how i finish the second row  

now for the third row of reductions we're  going to turn here now for this third row  

slip the first stitch and we're going  to purl the next two stitches together

now knit the next stitch and then purl the  next two knit and then purl two together  

knit purl two together knit purl two together  continue like this all the way to the end i'm  

here at the end of the third row of the last  stitch we always purl now this is what it looks  

like now we're going to reduce one more time if  you want to leave it like this it's fine we can  

close but i just want to reduce more stitches  here at the top so i'm going to turn here  

and the first stitch we're going to slip  

and here i am going to purl two together  across like this purl two together

and then purl two together

purl two together and so on to the last stitch  okay so continue and i'll meet you at the end  

of this last row okay i'm here at the end of this  last row so the last stitch here i'm just going to  

purl and this part here is done now cut your yarn  make sure you leave a lot a long tail so we're  

going to turn this over like this and we're going  to close the top of the hat first so just insert  

your thread through your needle and we're going  to remove these stitches from our needle like this

okay now pull your yarn through  hold this here hold the loop here  

don't pull it all the way because what we're going  to do is we're going to leave a nice loop here to  

tie this i like to do it like this if you want  to just pull it all the way and just weave it  

around that's fine i'm just going to tie  a knot here now i think that looks better  

now tie another knot so that it's nice and secured  perfect so the top of the hat is closed now  

now what we're going to do is we're going to  seam this part here so i am going to seam my uh  

my hat like this so this is the right side so  now we're going to go from one side to the other  

so right now my yarn is on the right side so  we're going to find the first stitch here on  

the left side now as we were slipping each one  of the stitches we were leaving these v stitches  

on the very edge you can see it right there so  right next to it right here to the side you'll  

see this bar in between each row so that's where  i'm going to be inserting my needle for each side  

and make sure that each side corresponds with the  right row so this would be my last row right here  

so i'm going to insert my needle through there and  then find the next row here and right to the side  

you'll see that stitch so insert  your needle there find the next row  

and you're just going to work your  way down doing the exact same thing

for each one of the rows like this and  that's how i'm going to close my hat

so continue like this all the way to the  bottom and i will meet you there to show you  

what we need to do next okay i'm here at the end i  finished closing this part here so all you do now  

is just pull your yarn and as you can see it's  starting to close and you can barely see where  

we did our seam now pull this like this so  it's not too too tight here nice and loose

and that's what it looks like perfect  

now here at the bottom we're going  to reinforce these last two stitches  

so i'm going to insert my needle through there and  through the first row here right to the side we're  

going to make like an eight so we're going to go  this way and come back the other way like this

and now it's nice and secured

and i think that looks pretty  good now we're just going to  

hide our ends i'm going to do one more stitch here

perfect now we're just going  to hide our remaining yarn  

you can do this from the inside i just like  to go right here to the side in and out

like this and then come  back and then go back again

and that should keep it nice and secured

whatever remaining yarn you have  come back down and just cut your yarn  

perfect and here's our finished  little hat that's what it looks like

now i still have this here this yarn  

so i'm going to finish weaving this so  that i can show you the finished hat

here's the finished little hat that's what it  looks like and that's the top this is the inside  

it's a reversible stitch so if you don't want  this here just weave it around and it should

look nice too there it is now let me try  it on my little model here so that you can  

see what it looks like now my baby dolls head  circumference um this one is about let's see  

14 inches which is about 35.5 centimeters  so this would be zero to three months size  

so let's try it on him see what  it looks like perfect look at that

now let me show you the same  hat on the newborn baby doll

now her head circumference is  about 13 inches which is the  

an average newborn head size maybe a tiny bit big  but i'd say that it should still work if you fold  

it up a bit more that's what it would look like  on a newborn baby so you can do it in the same way  

just do last rows and it should work for a baby a  newborn baby that's what it looks like there it is  

now let me show you this one here on my three to  six month size baby doll this one here let's see

now to close this hat you would do it in the  same way and the reductions also in the same way  

there it is that's what it looks like  on her the three to six month size  

this one here i did 46 rows and as you can see  it's a tiny bit long so if you prefer to do it  

where it's not as long then only do maybe 44 rows  and it should work out nicely too and there it is  

so the three to six months size and then the  zero to three months size on my newborn doll  

or on the zero to three month size baby boy  

there it is i think it looks so cute look at  that i love it and it was so easy to make so  

this was today's tutorial i hope you like it  thank you so much for watching until next time
