Seed Stitch Baby Beanie - My First Regia Version

Seed Stitch Baby Beanie - My First Regia Version

"Perfect for baby's first beanie."

No one does fingering-weight yarn for babies like Regia. A mercerizing process makes My First Regia’s blend of virgin wool and polyamide machine washable and as enjoyable in the hand as it is joyful to the eye.

We love the range of sweet springtime variegated and solid colors–perfect for our free Seed Stitch Baby Beanie pattern that lets you choose between a plain and a rolled edge. (One perfect 25g skein also makes a pair and a spare of our Wee Baby Socks.)

Click on "The Free Pattern" tab to see the pattern, then grab your choice (or choices!) of colors. You’ll need one skein for the Newborn size and two skeins for the Small Child size. It’s such a quick knit, we like to keep a stash on hand for baby showers–tis the season!

GLOSSARY: K = knit; Tog = together; P = purl; St(s) = stitch(es).

Plain-edge version: Using larger circular needles, cast on 95 (105) sts. Place marker and join in round, being careful not to twist. Proceed to Seed-stitch section.

Rolled-edge version: Using smaller circular needles, cast on 95 (105) sts. Place marker and join in round, being careful not to twist. Knit every round until work measures 1"/2.5cm from cast-on edge, unrolled. Proceed to Seed-stitch section and change to larger needles.

Seed-stitch section (both versions):
Round 1: *P1, K1*, repeat between * * to last stitch, P1.
Round 2: *K1, P1*, repeat to last stitch, K1.
Repeat Rounds 1 & 2 (knitting over purls and purling over knits) until work measures approx. 3¾"/9.5cm (4¼"/10.5cm) from cast-on edge for plain-edge version; or 4¾"/12cm (5¼"/13cm) from cast-on edge for rolled-edge version. End having worked a Round 2.

Decrease rounds: Note: On Decrease rounds, ‘work 3Tog’ will alternate between P3Tog and K3Tog; work the appropriate decrease to stay in pattern. Pull resulting stitch a little snug to avoid loose decreases. Note also that decreases do not ‘stack’; counting stitches between decreases in decrease rounds will ensure proper placement. Change to double-point needles when necessary.

Round 1 (Decrease round): Beginning with P1, *work 16 (18) sts in seed st as established, work 3Tog*; repeat between * * four more times. [85 (95) sts] Rounds 2–4: Work even in seed stitch (NO decreases).
Round 5 (Decrease round): Beginning with P1, *work 14 (16) sts in seed stitch, work 3Tog*; repeat between * * four more times. [75 (85) sts].

Repeat Rounds 2–5 two more times, working two fewer sts between ‘work 3Tog’ on each Decrease round. [55 (65) sts].
Now repeat Rounds 4 & 5 only until 5 sts remain.

I-cord top (optional): Knit all 5 sts onto one double-point needle; don’t turn. *Slide sts back to right end of needle, bring yarn across back firmly and knit 5 sts again.* Repeat between * * until cord is 1"/2.5cm or desired length (to tie a top knot, 2¼"/5.5cm is required).

Finishing: With darning needle, thread tail through all 5 sts; draw tail up tightly. Thread tail down into I-cord or center of plain top; weave in ends on wrong side. (Note: on rolled edge, weave in end on knit side, which is inside of roll). Wet block or steam gently as desired.
