Knitting for little children is a pleasure! The work goes quickly due to the small size, and the result in most cases is much better than the store offers. This is especially true of children's hats. Sometimes what is commercially available contains too much synthetics and does not protect the child from wind or drafts at all. Therefore, it is best to try to tie a hat for the baby with their own hands.
Hat for a boy: features knitting
The knitting hat for the boy knits a little easier than for girls. If the pattern of knitting may be the same, then the girl's headdress requires additional decorations and decor. Before knitting children's knitting needles, just choose the color of the yarn and the desired pattern.
All hats, like many others. other things fit in according to the same principle. Having mastered it, you can link any without descriptions.
Knitting a hat for boys need to start with the removal of measurements. Even if you knit on the finished description, you need to know the girth of the head and the height of the cap. The first measurement is obtained by measuring the circumference in the middle of the forehead with a measuring tape. 2nd - measuring the segment, starting from the crown to the middle of the forehead. We write down measurements. After that, choose a yarn. The thicker the threads, the warmer the cap will be. Another advantage of thicker yarns is that they knit much faster.
We select the desired diameter of the spokes. For this, it is worth looking at the recommendations of the thread manufacturer indicated on the package. Each knitter works with its density, so you can move a little away from these sizes. Knit the sample so that the determinant of the number of loops in the dial. We collect about 20 loops and knit 5-7 cm with the selected basic pattern. If the canvas turns out to be too loose, change the spokes for another, smaller diameter. The received sample needs to be washed or otparit the iron. Using a ruler to determine the number of loops in 1 cm of the sample.
Then you need to calculate the number of loops in the 1st row. To do this, multiply the head circumference measure by the number of loops in 1 cm of the sample. For example, if the 1 cm 3 loop, and the girth of the head 30 cm, then we collect 90 loops on the spokes.
After scoring the required number of loops, go to knitting hats. The first few rows are better to perform with an elastic band - so the headdress will be comfortable to fit around the head, the bottom edge will not be bent. Then knit the main pattern. The number of rows is equal to the height of the cap minus 3-4 cm. Next, we do a decrease, so that the cap has a rounding of the upper part.
Usually reduce the number of loops, equal to half the circumference of the head. To subtract, we knit them together in a pattern. We do subtractions in every 2nd row until 3-5 needles remain on the spoke. We cut the thread, pull it through the loop and tighten it. If you knit a hat with 2 knitting needles, then stitch it with a knit stitch.

After completion of knitting braids according to the scheme, cut the thread and stretch it through the loops.
To strengthen the caps make a pompon. Prepare thick paper, fold it several times and wind it over the long side of the thread. Tie the middle with a short thread. Trim the sides on each side with scissors. Pompon fluff hands and sew to the crown.

This option fits in the same way as described above. It should be especially careful to choose yarn. Baby's skin is very delicate and coarse yarn can cause irritation. Therefore, it is better to opt for high-quality acrylic or cotton. There are special yarns. Usually that the threads are designed for the smallest, they write on the package.
