This is a very easy baby hat to knit on two needles, knit with a super soft angora blend yarn that does not shed.

Gauge:
28 sts=4" over k2, p2 rib unstretched
Materials:
Size 7 (US) straight needles
Large eye blunt tapestry needle
Yarn:
one skein Bunny Hop from Crystal Palace Yarns
50 % micro acrylic, 42% micro nylon, 8% rabbit angora
113 yds/50 grams
Size:
Fits babies 3-6 months

Instructions:

NOTE: To change sizes always make sure stitches are divisible by 4 + 2.

Cast on 50 sts. Work 4 rows of k2, p2 ribbing (Row 1 to Row 4).

Row 5: k6, (p2, k2) to within 6 sts of end, k6.
Row 6: p6, (k2, p2) to within 6 sts of end, p6.
Row 7: same as row 5.
Row 8: k8, (p2, k2) to within 8 sts of end, k8.
Row 9: p8, (k2, p2) to within 8 sts of end, p8.
Row 10: same as row 8.
Row 11: k10, (p2, k2) to within 10 sts of end, k10.

Continue in this manner until there are no (k2, p2) sts left and you are totally working in bands of k and p. Knit across once. Bind off.

Fold this bound off edge in half against itself and sew to form pointed bonnet.
