For a while now I’ve wanted to design a baby top knot hat and with several friends expecting this summer, this seemed like the perfect opportunity. The Top Knot Love Hat knit pattern is made in sizes 0-3 months to toddler, and is plenty long so it can be folded up to fit your little one just right. The rib stitch throughout the hat also helps it grow with your little one. Top Knot Love makes a great gift or donation!

The yarn for this design was provided by Red Heart. All opinions are my own.

  1. I LUV the knot in the top. I like those stocking hats with a long tail, but the tail gets in the way! This is the perfect solution to keeping that hat tail out of his mouth!
