Bright Stripes Newborn Baby Hats



Modern mums like bright bold colours for their newborns, so I made these cute little newborn baby hats with bright bold stripes. They are very easy to knit.
 
Hope you like them.

  9. :). Ilove this pattern! If I wanted to make it for a larger head...I would need to do a multiple of 4 +2 (for the rib section) to the length/number of stitches I wanted right? And then do a wider section of rib/rows. When I get to the top, would I be able to keep the pattern of decreases you provide?

    Also. For making them larger...so the hat fits well, do you do the total length one inch or two shorter than the persons head circumference so it stays on?
    Thanks!
