Pattern: Cupcake baby hat


This is a pattern for a hat I knitted last month. The original Cupcake hat was knitted for my new niece’s baby shower. It was such a hit and I liked the hat so much I thought I’d submit it to an online knitzine (this is the submission I mentioned in a recent post). It was rejected, so here it is. At least this way you didn’t have to wait until July to see it. 🙂

Download the Cupcake hat here (PDF). The pattern is free but it is “Worthware”; if you like it, please send what you think it’s worth to my PayPal account (address is on the pattern).

Some people have made this hat and posted their own pictures! I will link to photos here, so send me your URL if you post pictures of hats knitted from my pattern:

  1. I can’t believe you were rejected! How ridiculous is that! You hat is adorable and I certainly want to make one! GREAT JOB!!!

    Happy Knitted Hugs

  2. I love this pattern and hat, I am looking for a yarn to use the Jo-Ann Sensations Dolcetto has been discontinued. If you have any suggestions on what other
    yarn would work, I would love to hear.


  3. I don’t have a specific yarn suggestion, unfortunately. The Dolcetto yarn was a wool/cotton/nylon blend, so you might see if you can find an aran/light worsted yarn with similar fiber content. Someone online is using the Jo-Ann Sensations Tesoro, which looks nice, but it might have a smaller gauge, perhaps. Sorry I don’t have any better ideas at the moment.
