Newborn cable beanie knitting pattern:

Cast on

Using smaller size knitting needles, cast on 66 stitches. Place stitch marker and join to knit in the round. Rib k1, p1 for 8 rounds or until the piece measures 3 cm.

Knitting the body of newborn cable beanie:

Switch to bigger size knitting needles. Change yarn color if needed.

In the next round, we will add 15 more stitches to get in total 81 sts. Get the final number multiple of 9.

Round 1: [k4, inc, k4, inc, k5, inc] – repeat 5 times, k1. (81 sts)

If you changed the yarn color as I did, I suggest slipping the first stitch of Round 2 and do not knit it. In this way, we will get rid of the jog at the beginning of Round 2.  Skip this step if you knit with a single color.

Rounds 2-5: [k6, p3] – repeat till the end of the round.

Round 6: [C3F, p3] – repeat till the end of the round.

Rounds 7 -11: [k6, p3] – repeat till the end of the round.

Round 12: [C3F, p3] – repeat till the end of the round.

Repeat Rounds 7-12 two more times. After that Repeat Rounds 7, 8 and 9. The hat measures now 13 -13.5 cm.
