Matching Hat for all-in-one baby top

So many of you have enjoyed making my little all-in-one baby top -
month by month it is my most popular baby design.
 
I would like to thank those of you who have shared your photos on ravelry -  it has been really lovely seeing all the different yarns and colours you have used. And a big thank you too for those who have taken the time to message me to let me know how much you enjoy making it. It really makes my day!
 
Would you like to make a matching baby beanie hat?

  12. Do you have the conversion to knit the hats in the round using circular needles or dpns so that you do not have to sew up the seams? I really love your pattern and have made the sweater without the sleeves in the 6 months and toddler size. Just loved it. Would love to do a hat but really hate to sew up seams. Thank you.

    1. I have converted the pattern (0-3 and 6months size group only), but it seems a bit much to post here. I'd be glad to give it to Marianna to add to her postings, if she wants it. Would email to you, but don't want you to post your email for the world to see . . . .

    2. Wow, I would love to have it too! There must be a way to post the modified pattern. Google Docs, maybe?

    3. Can I get that pattern too? DPN is the way to go!

      Delete
    4. This is an experiment; I've not used Google Docs before, except to download something. But I've transferred the pattern to there and set it up with a shareable link, so hopefully anyone who is interested can access it. Here's the link if you want to give it a try:

  13. Thank you so much for posting this pattern! I absolutely love this hat! Is there any way you're considering making a pattern for an adult size? Thanks so much!

  14. I would also like to see this pattern done with double pointed needles.

  15. When you are making the lace pattern should you have 65 stitches at the end of every row and don't start losing stitches until you start decreasing? Some how I ended up with a lot more than 65 stitches and i don't know if this is right.

  17. Hi

    I'm a newbie and I really like your design :) Slip1 means the stitches is decreasing by 1 each row? or You just slip1 maintaining same number of stitches?

  19. Love these hats !! What brand of yarn are you using?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thank you for sharing this pattern.
    I am confused for row 13: S1, k2, * yrn, s1, k1, psso, k7, k2tog, yrn, k1, rep from * to last 2sts, k2
    I get 14 stitches between **, and when I repeat this 4 times = 56 stitches, + S1 + k2 + k2 = 61, and there are 65 stitches?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The yrn makes an increase. The s1, k1, psso combination results in a decrease. So that starts the group between the ** off as two stitches; add the k7, and the group is now 9. Do the k2tog decrease to bring it to 10, the yrn to make it 11, and the k1 to make a total of 12 stitches between the **. Work that grouping five times, and you have 60; with the addition of S1 + k2 + k2, that brings it to 65. Hope this makes sense.

      Delete
    2. I am having hte same trouble Trine. My YRN makes a hole but does not make an increase. there are so many "ways" to do this on you tube I dont know which is right.

  27. As a new knitter, I thank you for your wonderful easy to read patterns. I have just made the jacket and am now on the hat for a grandson expected in October. I was a crocheter but not much for boys in crochet sp had to learn to knit!. I just love your patterns. I have spent a small fortune buying patterns only to find that they are too complicated for a beginner. Thank you so much. I really appreciate your generosity!

  29. Love the pattern, but very frustrated that I cannot print it. I would like to know if there is a way to print the pattern--I would be willing to buy the pattern in order to print it, because I cannot take my computer with me while I am knitting! Any ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Love your designs, but also love to avoid seaming wherever I can. I've converted the All-In-One Matching Hat to circular, rather than flat knitting (but only the first set of instructions for 0-3 months and 6 months). I'll be glad to pass it along to you if you'd like to post it. It's been tested, and worked fine. I imagine I could do other sizes as well, but would probably have to post with a notation that those haven't been tested. I'm in the US, but kept all the original UK terminology to avoid confusion, and make comparison to the original easier as I was working.

  32. Very nice patterns but what is the meaing of passo kindly me.

    Replies
    1. That should be psso, I think, which is pass slip stitch over. So where you slipped one, then knit one (s1, k1), you then pass that slip stitch over the knit stitch to make a decrease.

  37. You may have skipped doing one of the yarn overs; it's so easy to do that. Try going back and looking at your stitches and see if you can tell where one might be missing. Otherwise, you may just have to take the row out and re-do it, if you can't spot the error. (But hopefully you'll find it.) You can't just ignore it, unfortunately, because it'll end up throwing the pattern off. Good luck!

  38. Annie-Claude,
    Marianna's Lazy Daisy Days has a group on Facebook. If I join the group, perhaps I could post the modifications there for knitting the hat in the round. Do you use Facebook?

  40. Hello Marianna, thank you very much for sharing this pattern. I am just about to finish the all-in-one cardigan (size 1-3 for my daughter) and I thought I should take a look for a matching hat. Great that you anticipated we would all look for a hat to match!:)

  41. hi, i have a question. What does 'ending K2 means in this step?? [S1, k1, * yrn, s1, k1, psso, k5, k2tog, yrn, k3, rep from * to end (ending k2)]. The pattern between ** is ending at K3, do you mean to say that in the end after the last repeat we have to do additional K2?? Kindly clarify!! Also Marianna if you have a facebook page kindly let us know I would like to join it.

    1. No, I think it's the opposite--subtracting one, not adding. If you work your way across the row following those instructions, when you get to the very end, you should have only two stitches left on that last repeat, not three.

    2. Yes Betty - your reply is correct. :) Many thanks

    3. Faiza - hope this helps ~ repeat what is in the brackets across the row, and end with yrn, s1, k1, psso, k5, k2tog, yrn, k2

  45. I made the sweater and it is just gorgeous but it is very small. Do you have directions for 1 year size? I'd love to make it again in a larger size.

    1. Try larger needles; you might want to go to a different yarn, too. It depends on what you've been using -- hard to tell without knowing the details. But I've made a number of baby sweaters larger by using these simple changes.

  46. Hello! Does S1 mean slip as if to pearl (point to point) or slip as if to knit? Thank you!!

  47. I would like to knit this hat on circular needles. Please let me know how to change the pattern to accomplish this.

  48. I wrote it up as a two page document, essentially the same format as the original, so that's a bit lengthy to post in a comment. I've saved it as a Google document, shareable link. If you go to https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NSgzX4NOgSquSuw1H1SbIZ2eODSyFpd6X_p6LTz3jS8/edit?usp=sharing you should be able to open it. It's missing the picture, but otherwise, I think everything is there. If this doesn't work, I'll try to figure out a different option.

    I just knitted your pattern as a gift for my cousin's little girl: https://instagram.com/p/BOvLKBoFtHZ/
    Really enjoyed it and so easy to follow, will be sure to try more of your patterns in the future :)
    Many thanks,

  52. Mariana's top has been my "go to" pattern but I have only made the hat once because I hate seaming. Mariana, you are so generous to share and I thank you. Betty, I want to try the DPN pattern but you say at the end to "Cut yarn (leaving a long ‘tail’ to use for sewing up), draw the end through all stitches, pull up tightly.
    Sew up the seam. Darn away ends." But there would not be a seam if knitted on DPNs, right? I usually just darn the ends.

  53. Well, phooey. That's what happens when you proof-read your own work--sorry about that. I'm surprised nobody else has caught that error. Thanks for letting me know. I'm going to fix my original right now, but will leave the one posted to Google alone unless I get more comments on it. Hopefully, anyone else interested in the pattern will also read this . . . . Here's the revised ending:

    Cut yarn (leaving a long ‘tail’ to run in to secure), draw the end through all remaining stitches, pull up tightly, and darn away ends.

  54. Betty - thanks for writing out a round knit version! I made the 0-3, but would like to do one for my 2 year old also. Did you do the toddler version? Basically do I just knit all the purl rows (to get stockinette between the pattern rows?) I also don't remember doing slip one (I guess that's just to get an even edge to seam) at the beginning of each row.

    1. Well, I did a reply last night and it doesn't seem to have published. Guess that's what happens when I try to work too late . . . . Anyway, I've not done the toddler size, but am now working on a pattern revision that I think will work. I'm too backlogged with projects right now to do a test hat, but feel pretty confident in what I have done. It sounds like you have a good grasp of the basic changes and will be able to work with what I am putting together. I'll post as a Google doc as I did with the other.

      You're right about converting purl rows to knit. However, to make the pattern and decreases line up correctly, there is a bit of additional tweaking; that's where you have to watch what you're doing. And you're also right about the slip one being a seaming help; some people like to use that method, others don't. With the conversion to circular, of course, you're right about not having done them on your first one; they would have served no purpose.

      Hope to have a draft put together by this afternoon.

    3. Sorry--I posted the link to the Google doc on the day I had planned, but it vanished, so here it is again:

      I have a bit too much going on right now, so did not have the time to make a sample project, but I think all the math is correct. Please let me know if you have a question or spot an error.

  55. Uh-oh -- got a msg in my email with a question re: Row 17 that says "row17 it seems that it ends after the K5 part and there are no more stitches left to continue to the end of the * " (and I don't see that question posted here . . . ). The way it reads, I assume it's the baby size, not the toddler size. Below is what Row 17 is supposed to say:

    17th Rnd: K1, * yrn, s1, k1, psso, k5, k2tog, yrn, k3, rep from * ending last repeat k2

    If it's that pattern, I'm surprised the issue hasn't come up before, as I posted the pattern to Google some time ago -- wonder what happened? Anyone else see anything strange in that pattern?

    Thanks for letting me know.

    1. Thanks Betty, I did comment on a spot that was dated a few years ago and I'm grateful that you are still reading! I've tried a few times to get this right and don't know what I'm doing wrong? I'll double check the number of stitches but does the number stay at 60 until the decrease starts?
      Thanks again, Judy

  56. I am new to blogging so thanks for your patience!

  57. Fortunately, Judy, the postings come to my email, so I don't actually have to keep a close watch on the blog. Let's see if we can sort this out; once you understand it for Rnd 17, it should make 21, 25, and 29 go smoothly for you. Yes, you're remaining at 60 sts until the shaping starts. On the pattern rounds, you're working 12 sts after that asterisk, then another group of 12, etc. The exception is the last group; in that one you'll be working fewer, to make up for the stitch(es) before the asterisk.

    Let's break down the group of 12; I suspect that's where you're having the problem. You start with yrn (or, as we commonly call it in the US, yo [yarn over]) so that is stitch 1. Slip 1 gives you stitch 2; knit 1 gives you stitch 3. Then you do a psso (pass slip stitch over). Passing that slip stitch over the knit stitch drops your total count back to 2 stitches. Knit 5, so now you're at 7 stitches. Knit 2 together; that brings your count to 8 stitches. Yrn brings you to 9, and knit 3 brings you to the required 12 for that group. Repeat those steps going across the row. When you get to the end of the very last repeat, you will only have two stitches left, not 3, so that's why it says "ending last repeat k2." I know this is a long, drawn out way of describing it, but any time I'm faced with something that's full of increases and decreases, that's the way I break it down. Does this help?

  58. Yes! Thank you so much for taking the time to go through this so carefully! It makes sense now! I'm almost ready decrease and the hat looks so cute for my not yet born born grandson!
