Free Baby hat pattern

Hi, all,

Here is a baby hat I made today.
You will need:
Straight needles, in size to match your yarn. I used worstedt weight yarn and size 4 mm needles.
Tapestry needle, scissors, crochet hook in size 4 mm.
Cast on 64 stitches and knit garter stitch for about 6 inches, then knit stockinette stitch for about another 6 inches.
Next row, slp 1, k2tg, to end
Next row, purl all stitches
Next row, slp 1, k2tog to end, if there is 1 left, knit it
Next row, Purl all stitches
Next row, slp 1, k2tog to end
Next row, purl all stitches
Cut the yarn, leave long enough tail to sew the seams (about 20 inches),but do not cast off,
Feed the tapestry needle with the yarn and pull the yarn thru the last stitches on your knitting needles, drop the needle and pull yarn tightly to close the hole.
Sew the sides together and hide yarn ends.
Tassel: Make a chain of 21, leaving a tail of 5-6 inches long, slp stitch to the first chain stitch, chain 20, slip thru the same first stitch as before, make another 20 chain, and repeat this until you have at least 10 chain stitch loops, or more, depending how big you want the tassel be.
Cut yarn and leave a tail about 5 inches long. With the tapestry needle pull the tail of thread thru the middle part of the hat to the wrong side of the hat, and the other tail end thru the same area, leaving a few stitches between the hanging yarns. Tie the yarns into a few knots and then weave in ends.
Turn the garter stitch part up half way and Voila! Your hat is done!
