Super Simple Knit Baby Hat
knit fabric - for this you can use remnants, old t-shirts, etc. You will need approximately 18" wide by 8" tall for this project. You will also need a contrast band cut 13 3/4" wide by 2 3/4" long with the stretch going across the width.
other requirements - ball point needle, measuring tape, paper, pencil, scissors, sewing machine, thread and water soluble fabric marker or tailor's chalk
Let's get started shall we? We'll begin by making our pattern!
With an 8 1/2 x 11" sheet of paper, draw a dome shape that measures 8 1/2" wide and 5 1/2" tall at it's center point. When you are happy with the curve of your dome, cut out your pattern. (note: an easy tip for making your pattern would be to draw it out on freezer paper, then you can iron it directly on to your fabric, shiny side down and it will stay put while you cut it out, eliminating the need for pinning or weights. Once you've cut out your fabric simply peel the freezer paper off. This is a great method when working with knits!)
