Let me rekniterate* — literally!  When you like something, repeat!

If you take this (see this post for pattern links):

and add it to this:

You get this:

The pink One Day Baby Hat was made using Tilli Tomas Pure and Simple Silk, Color Hope.  I used the stitch count for the larger size, but with the smaller gauge I ended up with a small sized hat.  This pattern is very easy to adapt to different gauges.  It is lighter weight and soft as silk (duh…).

It’s cold outside, work is tough, my car is in the shop, but, hey…I’ve got my knitting to keep me warm, busy, and happy!

*–verb (used with object), -at·ed, -at·ing. to knit again repeatedly

In response to the question about stitch count: 72 is correct.  The pattern is a multiple of 8, not 10.


  1. How adorable!

  8. I love that there is a COLOR called “hope.” Charming. Do both hats really have the “top knot?”

  9. Would it be OK to take your pattern and make the hat bigger for the chemo hat service knitting at the Guild?

  10. What pattern did you use for the hat with the rolled brim? That is just the baby hat I am looking for. It looks so precious in the pink, with the booties. Thank you.

  11. My question is the same as above. What pattern did you use for the hat with the rolled brim? Also what pattern did you use for the adorable booties that went with it?

  12. I am trying to make the One day baby hat in the newborn size. It says to cast on 72 stitches for newborn size but it doesn’t add up! When I began my first row of the horseshoe lace I had 2 stitches left over at end of round, I thought I had done something wrong, but when I counted what the pattern said, they were groups of 10, so what do I do with those 2 extra stitches? Was there a misprint and it was supposed to say cast on 70? (The larger size says cast on 80, which makes sense). Thank you for helping, I hope two get 2 hats made for baby gifts-soon!!!

  13. With the SK2P, how do you reduce by two stitches? If you slip as if to knit, then K2Tog (1 st down), then pass the slip back over the stitch just made….that’s only one stitch down in total. Do I slip it back onto the left needle and knit the next two together? I’m lost. Please advise. Lovely hat. I’m trying to knit some as a donation for the hospital right now. Thank you.
