The picture isn’t the best I’ve taken, but I’m getting increasingly lazy…

After getting very bored of finding nothing but samey baby clothes in the world, I decided to knit this little number.

It’s incredibly easy and for those interested, the instructions are as follows:

  • Cast on 60 stitches.
  • Knit 23 rows of stocking stitch by starting on a purl row.
  • On row 24 begin to reduce by knitting 4 and then knitting 2 together – repeat this pattern to the end of the row.
  • Purl the next row as normal.
  • Knit the following row by repeating 3 knit stitches, then knitting 2 together.
  • Purl the next row.
  • Complete this row by knitting 2 and then 2 together, all the way along.
  • Purl this row.
  • Repeat knit 1, knit 2 together to the end of the row.
  • Purl.
  • Knit 2 together along the row. Cut the wool, leaving a long tail, and pass the thread through the remaining stitches to finish.
  • Sew up the seam of the hat.
  • To make the ears, cast on 6 stitches. Knit into the front and back of each stitch.
  • Stocking stitch 8 rows.
  • Knit one, knit 2 together, knit 6, knit 2 together, knit one.
  • Cut the wool, leaving a long tail, and pass the thread through the remaining stitches. Pull this tight to curl the ear and sew onto the hat.
  • Make another ear to finish.
