Emily: A Hat for a Baby Girl

Emily Free Knitting Pattern for a Baby Girl Hat[Hi there ... I would love to include you on my free, 100% private eMmail list. You will get my free Cozy Toes sock pattern when you sign up! ~firefly]

This is a dear little hat I designed to go with the Emily sweater I made for our pastor's baby girl.

The hat is sized to fit a baby from six to twelve months.

See below for the free Emily Hat pattern.

Emily Sweater PatternThe Emily hat pattern is included as a bonus in the Emily Sweater Pattern, which may be purchased here on my website or in my new Etsy store.

The print or download patterns for both the Emily sweater and hat feature closely detailed instructions, helpful notes and tips, plus close-up photos of the stitch pattern and other details.

All of my retail patterns come with beautiful, full-color cover sheets and personal journal pages for you to record your own project info and photos.
