Ok, you guys, how CUTE is this spring daisy hat?!  I’m  little  obsessed. Ok, I’m a lot obsessed and I made Baby V three different ones because I couldn’t decide which color combo was the cutest!

When I first decided knit a flower, I thought it was going to be really difficult but the good new is, it’s not!  It took some trial and error but I’m really happy with  the difficulty level and the look of the finished daisy. Look at all those cute petals! Spring Daisy Hat Knitting Pattern for newborns, babies and toddlers! | littleredwindow.com

I put the little flower on a headband strip on the hat which is perfect for little ones who don’t have that much hair yet. And the light worsted weight yarn is perfect for springtime which is chilly but not super cold.  I promise, you won’t be sorry if you make this one!

Light worsted weight or DK yarn  in a main hat color, a flower color, yellow and light green

US 6 16″ circular knitting needles

(If you need help, my favorite knitting reference book for everyone from beginners to advanced knitters is THIS ONE!)

Using a long-tail cast on, cast on 72 stitches on your circular needles in your main hat yarn color.  Join to knit in the round and k1, p1 in a rib stitch for 5 rounds. Then knit all stitches for 10 rounds. Switch to the flower yarn color and knit all stitches for 3 rounds to make the contrast band. Then switch back to the main hat yarn color and knit all rounds  until the hat is about 4 1/2 inches long.

Decrease  (distribute your stitches onto 3 double pointed needles and knit with the fourth):

Round 1: (k6, k2tog) and repeat to the end of the round.

Round 2: Knit all stitches

Round 3: (k5, k2tog) and repeat to the end of the round.

Round 4: Knit all stitches

Round 5 :(k4, k2tog) and repeat to the end of the round.

Round 6: Use the fourth double pointed needle to knit all stitches for one round.

Round 7: (k3, k2tog) and repeat to the end of the round.

Round 8: Knit all stitches to the end of the round

Round 9: (k2, k2tog) and repeat to the end of the round.

Row 4: p2tog and repeat to the end of the row.

Cut the yellow yarn leaving a long tail and thread the tail onto your yarn needle. Then thread the yarn needle through the remaining stitches and pull to close the center of the flower.

Tie a knot on the back of the flower and leave this long tail to sew the flower to the hat. Weave in the rest of the ends and use the original cast on tail end to stitch the first and last flower petal together to keep the flower closed.

*to do a purl cast off (also known as a purl bind off), purl one stitch, then purl a second stitch and pass that second stitch over the first and off the needle. You have cast off one stitch.

To knit the leaves (make 2): 

Using the light green yarn and your straight needles, cast on 4 stitches. Leave a long tail to stitch the leaves to the flower.

Rows 1 -2: knit all stitches

Row 3: kfb, k2, kfb

Row 4-11: knit all stitches

Row 12: k2tog, k2, ssk

Row 13: k2tog, ssk

Row 14: k2tog

Cut your yarn, pull through loop to close and weave in that end on the back of the leaf.

To assemble the hat:

Use their long cast on tails to stitch the leaves together at their base  and then to the back of the flower. Then use the long yellow cast off tail from the flower to stitch the entire flower (including the leaves) to the hat along the contrast band. Weave in all remaining ends.
