So…are you guys thinking I’m nuts for making this cute fall hat? Was that acorny pun? Should I keep going? No, that’s enough? Ok! Well, back to the business at hand. I was brainstorming fall hat ideas and thought an acorn hat would be really adorable. Acorns are such a pretty shape and they’re just SO autumn that I think it makes for the perfect hat that you can wear from August straight through Thanksgiving! Fall Acorn Hat Knitting Pattern for newborns, babies and toddlers! ! | littleredwindow.com

I especially love how the seed stitch acorn top came out. That was, ahem, interesting, to figure how to do the decrease with that pattern but I love you guys so I toughed it out. You’re welcome!  If you make an acorn hat for your baby with this knitting pattern, please make sure you share your project with me on RavelryFall Acorn Hat Knitting Pattern for newborns, babies and toddlers! ! | littleredwindow.com

PLEASE NOTE: Baby V is wearing the 2T+ size in these photos and it’s a little big which is why the brim is folded up, the regular pattern does not include a folded brim.

  1. Hi! Ive tried several times and have ripped out the seed stitch section because I m not getting the pattern to follow sequence when I come to row nine. I’m wondering if there is a correction or if anyone else has had this problem,

    1. Hi! I have not had anyone else tell me they had this problem. The thing is, because you’re decreasing, the seed stitch won’t stay exactly perfect. In row 9 there will be two purl stitches in a row in each repeat. (And this will also happen in other rounds.) But as you decrease I’ve done my best to spread those spots out to make them less noticeable. When you look at the overall hat these spots shouldn’t be too terribly obvious. There really is no perfect way to decrease with seed stitch and keep the pattern up perfectly unless you so double decreases. But that changes the shape of the hat in a way that I didn’t want. Hope that helps! Happy Knitting!
