Clapdale Baby Hat Pattern


This pattern is available as a download.

For this pattern I used:

Yarn & Amounts: One 100g hank of WYS Bluefaced Leicester Aran – Undyed (100% British Bluefaced Leicester Wool, 166m/182yds per 100g).

Metres: Approx. 80(100:120)m, including pompom.

My Alternative Yarn Suggestions & Amounts: The Croft Shetland Aran Colours one 100g hank.

Needles: 4mm and 4.5mm.

Gauge (tension): 22 stitches and 38 rows to 10cm/4ins square over garter stitch using 4.5mm needles.

Size: Newborn, baby, child.

My design ideas and advice: I designed this hat based on my childhood memories of a cable hat that my mother knitted for me when I was a baby. There are photos of me wearing it and then photos of my younger sister wearing the same hat a couple of years later.
