Cap for a newborn with knitting needles: lesson with diagrams and description of a knitted cap for a child from 0 to 3 months


  • 1. Determined with dimensions
  • 2. Choosing yarn and needles
  • 3. Knitting a cap

Children's things connected with their own hands are the best gift for a newborn baby. You can tie knapsacks, blouses, or even a complete set. We have already published a master class on booties with knitting needles, as well as a lesson on knitting cymbals for a newborn baby. Today we will knit with a winter cap, which is useful both for discharge and for daily walks.


Determine with the dimensions of

The knitted needles simply follow the lead, guided by the step-by-step description of our master class. Below are the samples and the pattern of knitting, which is available even for beginner needlewomen. However, the first thing to begin with is to decide on the dimensions and to take measurements. If the baby is not yet born, or to measure the head circumference of the child is not possible, focus on the standard standards.

Parameters for boys:

  • from 0 to 2 months - 35-42 cm;
  • from 3 to 6 months - 41-47 cm.

Parameters for girls:

  • from 0 to 2 months - 33-42 cm;
  • from 3 to 6 months - 39-46 cm.

We choose yarn and needles

. As in the winter, we will make a hat for the newborn warm - the yarn "Semenovskaya" will be just right. In its composition 50% wool, 50% acrylic, and thanks to the pattern "hedgehog", our cap will be soft and bulky.

Prepare knitting needles - I used the usual "stockings".So, let's begin our lesson.


We knit the hat

Create the cap start with a set of 60 loops. The number of typed loops is sufficient, the more yarn is not particularly thin, and the pattern will be voluminous.


Begin to knit our hat with rubber bands. I prefer to knit with an English rubber band. You can tie the usual - 1 * 1, but this option is still more suitable for socks, and the English looks more beautiful, and even we knit a cap for our baby.

Eraser made easy:

  • remove edgeband;
  • 1 loop knit facing;
  • 2 - as in the photo, we remove with a cuff and so on until the end of the series.


Turn the work. Again, remove the edge. Next, we take off the front with a crochet, and we sew a loop with a cap over the front as in the photo.


We send so 2,5 cm. It turns out that such a volume rubber:


We start to knit a pattern "hedgehog" at once. This pattern is very light and interesting in the process of knitting with knitting needles. It matches in one breath. Suits for newborns I carry out this pattern. Kids are so cute in these suits "hedgehogs":) I'll give below a diagram of this pattern, and orienting on the photos, it will be even easier for you to tie it.


  • 1 row - dial an even number of loops.
  • 2 row - remove the first loop, the second loop to tie the front, the next - purl. Repeat this sequence to the end of the series: front / back, last - edge.
  • 3 row - take off the first eyelet, the second to tie the front, the next - with a crochet. Repeat this sequence to the end of the series: front / with a crochet, the latter - edgeband.
  • 4 row - remove the edge tab. Next, knit with a cuff, the third - the front, then again remove the loop with a cuff and again tie the front. Repeat this order until the end of the series.
  • 5 row - take off the first eyelet, the second to tie the front, then - the loop with 2 capes purl. Repeat this sequence to the end of the series: front / with 2 purl napkins.
  • 6 row - repeat the second row and continue further according to the scheme( second-fifth row).



Here's the pattern you'll get:


Having drifted 10 cm from the beginning of the work, we get this kind of cloth( from the reverse side):


And the front view:


Now we will proceed to the bottom of our cap. The way he knits with his knitting needles is simple enough, on the principle of "heel" at the toe. Easy and affordable. We divide our canvas into 3 parts. It turns out, in the middle we will have 20 loops, and on each side also 20 loops.

We send 40 loops, according to the drawing. And do the first reduction.39 we sew a loop together with a loop from the left knitting needle. We make sure that in the middle we always have 20 loops, and we will have decrements at the sides.


Turn the work. We remove the first loop, and tying the loops along the pattern in the middle, we again reduce.19 We sew the loop together from the side. Again, unfold the work.

Where to decrease, you will already be identified, and it will be easier for you to do the following decrements. Just do not forget that in the middle we have to have 20 loops, the decrements are at the sides.



That's what our bottom looks like - it's the front side.


And so it looks like working on the wrong side:


Turning the work again. And we reduce this method until there are 12 loops left on the spokes. Now, to make the bottom of our cap look more effective and fit better to the baby's head, we'll make the cuts in the middle.

Do downs on the wrong side. So it's easier to navigate the pattern. And do not forget to continue to reduce the sides of our bonnet.

And a little more secret advice: do the downs in the middle through 2 rows. And it's better to do them before you fasten the 2 loops along with the side. And the pattern will be preserved, and the decrease will be inconspicuous.

The newborn's cap is almost ready with knitting needles - we come to the end of our knitting. After all the reduction, you will not have a single loop on the sides. And in the middle, on the spoke, you should have only 8 loops. In the photo it's clear:




Close these 8 loops. Now we need to make the throat of our cap. On the front side we collect 40 loops. This is along the sides of 16 loops, and the middle - 8 loops.


and knit as British gum 2 cm freely, being careful not to pull on the thread.



Our bonnet is ready. Now it remains only to make the strings. Here the choice is yours, dear knitters. You can tie a crochet, you can sew a neat satin ribbon. I tied the strings with my knitting needles. We collect on the sides of the neck of 5 loops and knit to the desired length.

Do not forget to decorate our hat. Here, too, everything depends on your imagination. You can tie it with a crochet, you can trim with ruffles, ribbons. In general, as your soul desires. Most importantly, we made the base-cap, and the design is already yours.

As a result, it turned out such a nice winter hat on a newborn from 0 to 3 months - warm and elegant.



I hope you will succeed in this master class. Also you can watch the video-MC on the creation of a knitted cap for a newborn. Light to you loops!
