This is an absolutely adorable, cabled baby bonnet. This project is knit flat, then joined at the top with a Kitchener Stitch, and if you’ve been wanting to try a new cable pattern out, this one is perfect for you! It’s a lovely piece that will surely turn into an heirloom for whichever little babe this is given to.  

Yarn

50g/95yds worsted weight yarn. Pictured here in Weepaca by Big Bad Wool. This is a super soft and lovely fiber, perfect for sitting against the Wee Bairn’s head. I think solids really showcase the bobble and cable pattern, but feel free to choose whatever color you like! Our own Hearth weight yarn would work perfectly with this pattern.

4.5 stitches and 5 = 1” stockinette with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles

 Tools Needed

  • US 7, 24” circular needles (or size needed to obtain gauge)
