Upsy Daisy Toddler Hat

March 2, 2008 at 2:43 pm (cotton, dpns, free knitting pattern, in the night garden, upsy daisy)

Size: toddler 2-3yrs


50g of DK yarn, I used cotton.
16″ circular needle and 4 or 5 dpns for when knitting gets too small for the needle. I used size 4mm
stitch marker
Tapestry/wool needle
2 smaller dpns for “petals”


Cast on 84sts, join, being careful not to twist the sts.
Continue knitting all rounds until hat measures 4″ from the cast-on row.
Begin the decreases as follows, switching to DPNs

(Decrease) Row 1: *K10 K2tog*
Row 2: K all sts
(Decrease) row 3: *K9 K2tog*
Row 4: K all sts
(Decrease) row 5: *K8 K2tog*
Row 6: K all sts

Decrease in this manner until there are 35 sts on the needles.
Then decrease in the same manner, omitting the knit rows, until there are 7 sts remaining.
Pull yarn through the last 7 sts with a tapestry needle, pull through to inside and weave in ends.


With the smaller DPNs, push through centre of three sts about half way up the hat:

Knit about 10 rows (or whatever you prefer) of icord: i.e knit three sts, but instead of turning work, slip the sts to the other end of the dpn and bringing the yarn around the back of work knit 3 sts again.

Continue until you feel you have enough petals.
