Wee Noggin (Baby Hat) – Free Knitting Pattern

 In Free Patterns

Wee Noggin (Baby Hat ) is our free knitting pattern for beginners +

Knitted beanies, hats, headwarmers, tammies or whatever you prefer to call them, are a staple in any wardrobe, and an absolute necessity for a baby. This pattern was created as a quick simple knit, and also a template for creative design.

Introducing; The Wee Noggin (Baby Hat)
This pattern is not only quick, easy, but is also has good range of head sizes too! It was designed for my own little human, and has now been knit for other loved little human beans.

Work it plain or bring in pops of colour (perfect for using up your left over yarns!)

    This hat is super adorable, but my toddler must have a not-so-wee noggin, as I made the toddler size and it sits on his head like some kind of pom-pommed kippah..I might give it another go in the next size up, as he loves it and the Sumptuous wool is so soft and bright.
    Easy to follow instructions, and knits up nice and quick.
