Top Knot Hat - Newborn to 5 yrs

On Sale
Added to cart

This super cute hat for Newborn to age 5 is knit in sport weight (5ply) yarn. It is a simple, quick knit and suitable for novice knitters. Instructions are included to knit the hat flat (from edge to edge) or in the round.


My samples were knit using Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino - a sport weight yarn (125m per 50g). You will need 1 x 50g ball in each shade - for my hats I used 3 shades but you could use more or less. This is a great hat for using up leftovers!

Plain hat:

You can also make a plain hat with no stripes, which will require 1 x 50g ball of yarn.


  • Suggested needles: Size 3.00mm (US2½) and 3.25mm (US3) single point needles (for knitting flat) or the same size in DPNs or circular needles (using magic loop) depending on how you prefer to knit small circumferences in the round. The needle sizes are only a suggestion - use the appropriate size needles to achieve the stated gauge.
  • Large blunt sewing needle
  • Stitch markers (optional) - in case you prefer to mark the position of where decreases should be in the crown shaping.


25sts and 34rows over 10cm (4”) in stocking stitch using 3.25mm (US3) needles
