Sweet Baby Noah

One of my daughter's closest friends from High School is expecting a baby boy soon. I have worked up a little cable hat for the cherub. I wanted something that Mom, Jess, could use at anytime that would also be soft and keep baby Noah warm. So I used a soft, chunky yarn in a neutral color. The little hat worked up in no time, too. It is worked on two needles and is seamed at the back.

Noah's Hat

Yarn: Bernat Chunky, approx. 65 yards.
Gauge: 3.5sts, 5 rows = 1 inch
Needle: US Size 9, Straight Needles
Size: Newborn/Infant
C4F: (cable 4 front) Slip two sts to cable needle and hold in front, knit next two sts., knit two stitches from cable needle. (left cross)
k1tbl: knit 1 stitch through back loop
p1tbl: purl 1 stitch through back loop
Sl1K2togPsso: slip one stitch as if to purl, knit 2 stitches together, pass slipped stitch over the two stitches that were just knit together. (Double Decrease)

Note: This hat has a 4-stitch cable set off with 2 purl stitches and a twisted stitch. The twisted stitch detail is achieved by knitting the stitch through the back loop on the right side and purling the same stitch through the back loop on the wrong side. You can find a video for ptbl here, and ktbl here.

CO 54 sts using a long tail cast-on.

Begin knitting Rib: (RS)P2, *K2, P2; repeat from * across, ending K2.
Repeat row 1 for 8 rows, ending with ws row.
Begin Cable rows as follows:
Row 1 and 3:P2, *K4, P2, K1tbl, P2; rep from *, across, ending with K1tbl.
Row 2 and 4: P1tbl, *K2, P4, K2, p1tbl; rep from * across, ending with K2.
Row 5: P2, *C4F, P2, K1tbl, P2; rep from *, across, ending K1tbl.

Rep rows 1-5 once more.

Begin Decreases:
Row 1: *p2tog, (k1,Sl1K2togPsso), p2tog, k1tbl; rep from * across. End k1tbl. (40 sts)
Row 2: P1, *k1, p2, k1, p1tbl; rep from * across. End k1.
Row 3: *p1, k2tog, p1, k1tbl; rep from * across. End k1tbl. (36 sts.)

Cut yarn leaving a long tail. Thread tail through darning needle and run it through all the stitches left on the needle. Cinch tightly, turn inside out and seam edges together with whip stitch. Weave in ends.

This is quick and dirty. As with any of my patterns, if you spot an error or have questions, don't hesitate to email me, leave a comment here, or you can pm me on Ravelry. I also hang out at Twitter.
