Beginner’s Easy PDF Knitting Pattern – New Baby Hat and Boots


Easy Baby Hat and Boots


Easy Baby Hat and Boots Knitting Pattern.

Knit our easy baby hat and boots, with our instant download knitting pattern PDF.  Ideal new knitter pattern, for babies aged 0-3 months (that’s the size of the set not the age of the knitter!).

What better to keep out the winter chills than this cute little new baby set, knitted in garter stitch (knit stitch), the hat uses very few techniques.  A bit of casting on, a bit of knitting, a bit of decreasing, and voila!  A hat is born.  It’s knitted on two needles, and sewn up at the end.  No circular needles required.  The booties use a few more techniques, including:

  • Cast on
  • Knit stitch
  • Increase
  • Decrease
  • Cast off

This really is a great pattern for new knitters because it uses all of the basic knitting techniques, so if you can cast on, and knit, pick up those needles, and get cracking!  Once you’ve done a couple of increases, you’ll be away.  And if you get stuck?  Fret not, just get in touch via our Contact Us page, and we’ll lend a helping hand.

To knit the hat and boots as in the main photo, you’ll need 2 x 50g Balls of DROPS Alaska in Dark Grey Mix, and 1 x 50g ball in Dark Turquoise, a pair of 4.5mm knitting needles, and a pompom maker, or cardboard rings (we used a 35mm pompom maker).
