LOMOND Baby Hat

I wanted a really simple but sweet baby hat that would work well for a newborn boy or girl. I know that I have written dozens of hat patterns already - but I love trying out new design ideas :)

  1. What a sweet pattern! I'm making this for my friend, who's having a baby next week!

    It would be helpful to have the gauge within the pattern (unless I'm not seeing it!). I was able to find it on your pattern's Ravelry page. Thanks!

  3. Hi Marianna, first of all thank you for this new pattern, I will knit this to match with a new Milo vest I'm about to knit for a newborn.
    The question is: do you always slip the first stitch? or you knit it every other row? Thank you in advance, Alessia
