This morning I decided to try and use my brother KX-350 home knitter knitting machine to make a baby blue child’s hat with a pom-pom. I could not find any patterns so I made this one up from looking at various videos online. For this hat I used 70 hooks and for the brim I knitted 50 rows then folded it over onto itself then continued knitting up to 90 rows. For the hat brim I set the tension dial at five then for the rest of the hat I set the tension dial at seven. I still need to work a lot on the seaming part but overall it turned out OK.
So I decided to make a hat for a 10 year old using this adult small pattern but then decided it was too big so instead of using the 6-10 year old pattern which is one size smaller, I simply used a 5.0 mm hook instead of 5.5 mm hook and the same adult small pattern. So now I think this hat would be better suited to a young adult hat size.
Made this cute little hat this evening and used lambs pride wool and a 5.5 mm bamboo crochet hook. I found this wonderful website that has a lot of different crochet patterns for children’s hats.
