You guys, after I designed the classic Easy Folded Brim baby hat, I thought, this hat has so many options for customization! So today I’m showing you one of them, the Rainbow Brim Hat! Adorable Rainbow Brim Hat knitting pattern!

This hat is so stinking cute, I can’t even stand it. I’m a sucker for rainbow colors. I honestly have like a million rainbow-y baby hats already. Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration, but you guys always like them too! Lovely bright colors in the brim of the Rainbow Brim Hat knitting pattern!

I decided to make the top of the Rainbow Brim Hat light blue, like the sky, but you can make it any color you like! And a word about the brim, if yours won’t stay folded the way you want it, go ahead and tack it down with a few tiny stitches around the edge so it stays in place! This bright and colorful Rainbow Brim Hat Knitting Pattern is a quick and easy knit for your baby or toddler! | littleredwindow.com

Easy Folded Brim Hat Knitting Pattern Instructions (12 months)

Using long-tail cast on, cast on 72 stitches onto your circular needles with pink yarn. Join to knit in the round and knit 1 stitch, purl 1 stitch in a rib stitch for 1 more round. Then switch to orange and k1, p1, in a rib stitch for two rounds. Repeat 2 rounds of rib stitch for each of the remaining colors: yellow, green, dark blue and purple. Then switch to sky blue and knit all rounds until the hat is about 5 inches long (measure with the brim folded up).
