Faux Cable Baby Hats

Faux Cable Baby Hats



I love knitting baby hats.  
There will always be new babies ........ so there will always be a reason to make them!!

I recently learned this new stitch, so I just had to have a go at using it for a baby hat. It looks so cute!  
I am really happy with it.

T2 = twist 2

k2tog, then before you drop the stitch off the needle, put the point of your needle between the 2sts and knit the first stitch again, before slipping both off together

T2 = twist 2

It is easy to do - just a little complicated to explain !
