I don't know about you, but I often have a tough time finding patterns to make cute outfits for boys. Browsing through Bev's Country Cottage website one day I came across this cute Sweater and Diaper set. Knitting a hat to go with this two piece outfit makes a really nice set for a grieving family.
Here's the basic knitting pattern for the hat. I used Patons Beehive Baby Sport yarn for the hat pictured but any sport yarn would work.
For the hat (knit in the round):
CO 72 sts with 3mm needles and blue yarn
K1, P1 for 8 rows
Change to 3.5mm needles and white
Knit until hat measures 3”
K7, k2tog repeat
K6, k2tog repeat
etc. until 8sts left.
Thread yarn through. Weave in ends.
If you've never looked through Bev's website I hightly recommend it. There are so many patterns that I want to knit, crochet, and sew that my printer does overtime when I visit!
