What You Get No exception
Know what yarn weight you need. Decide what color of yarn you prefer. Remember that not all parents want pink for a girl or blue for a boy. Consider a gender neutral color or primary color. Consider choosing a variegated baby yarn instead of a solid color.
There are also some new yarns that form a pattern as you knit. Select the right needles. Many baby hat patterns require size 6 4mm needles. Start with straight needles if you are just beginning to knit. Circular needles are generally used by more advanced knitters. Determine how big your needles need to be. The needle size determines how big the loops are in your hat, and the wrong needles may lead to the hat being the wrong size. Note that there are metric and US sizes, so you may need to convert the size.
Cast on your knitting. Casting on is the way that you begin your knitting by creating a row of loops on one of your needles. See How to Knit for step-by-step instructions for casting on. Cast on 60 loops if using 4mm needles more if the hat is not for a newborn. Hold your needles so that the left needle has the knitting on it, the needle points are facing away from you, and the yarn is leaving the needle to the right, on the bottom side of the needle. Knit a 5 inch swath using a basic knit stitch.
Hold the needle with the cast-on loops in your left hand and pass the needle in your right hand through the stitch and behind your left needle. Wrap a loop of yarn counter-clockwise around the right needle point. Pull the right needle off through the stitch on the left side, and push the top stitch off of the left needle. Each knit stitch will add one loop to the needle on the right and remove one from the needle on the left.
When you finish a row, change the needles to your other hands so that you start each row with the knitting on the left needle. Be sure your knitting trails to the right as you are knitting, towards the at first empty needle. Taper off for the top of the hat.
After knitting for about 5 inches, begin to decrease the length of your knitting. Continue the 2-stitch decrease until you have only one loop left on your needle. Cut off your extra yarn. Be sure to leave yourself a nice long tail of yarn for sewing the sides of the hat together. Tie the tail in a simple knot where it leaves the knitting before you begin to stitch with it.
Sew the hat together. Use a large sewing needle or a bobby pin, sew the hat sides together. Weave the excess yarn in and out along the two sides. Tie off the end and cut off the remaining tail. Flip your hat inside out. Decide how you want to give your hat as a gift. Crocheting with one hand can be a challenge, but it can be done.
