Before C was born I made this wee newborn size beanie from leftover yarn from the minty cardy and hat I made a year ago for Jasper. The other hat is still a little big for C yet (as is the cardy) so it means he gets to wear a matching set for a while.
The pattern is a basic 2×2 rib pattern I found online, which knitted up quickly on circular needles, but I hated the crown shaping to be honest. It just goes straight to stocking stitch which looks kinda weird after all the rib. I much prefer the baby watchcap pattern which is a 3×3 rib.
