Baby hats are an adorable and practical way to protect newborns from the elements and the cold. There are plenty of reasons why you should love knitting baby hats. Keep newborns warm and cozy in all seasons by covering up their heads with a season-appropriate knit baby hat. They will also look cute in their new brightly colored hat. Baby hats make excellent and thoughtful gifts for the newborn or baby in your family, or for friends and colleagues who are expecting. Baby hats are also great for your next charity knitting project.
Baby hats are a delightful, small project that’s ideal for beginner knitters. They are a great way to learn how to knit in the round with double-pointed or circular needles. Many of our free baby hat knitting patterns come with instructional videos that will help you out the first time you knit a baby hat.
