Newborn Mini Cable Beanie--Free Pattern

When we visited my daughter over Thanksgiving I took knitting with me. I was working on some baby legwarmers in a variegated sock yarn for our new grandson who is due in about three weeks. Nathan, the current youngest crawled onto the seat beside me and said "Nana, you make hat for my bebee?" When I told him, no, I was making legwarmers for the baby, he repeated his request. So, Friday after returning home I made a hat for the new arrival. I am currently working on a second one, a bit larger, so that Nathan and his "bebee" can have matching hats. This little bit of knitting turned out so cute I thought I would share the instructions with you. (I don't have any photos yet of the little cable in process, but I will try to get some this evening and add them to this post tomorrow.) If you have any questions about the directions post them in the comment section. 


Yarn: worsted weight
CO 48 stitches. Join to knit in the round.
Rows 1 – 6: *K2, P2* ribbing
Row 7: *K2tog (do not slip resulting stitch off Left needle), K into 1st stitch of K2tog pair, slip both stitches to right needle, P2*

Repeat Rows 1-7 six times.

Decrease crown of hat as follows:
Row 1: continuing in established pattern *work 6 sts, P2tog* (6 dec  total)
Row 2: work even

Row 3: *K2, P2tog, K2, P1*

Row 4: *K2, P1, K2tog, P1*

Row 5: *K2tog, P1, K1, P1* (at the end of this row you should have 24 sts of K1, P1 rib)
