Spaceman Nicolino

7 Dec

This hat reminds me of 1950’s science fiction films and makes me think of a spaceman from that era. I named it Nicolino (which means little Nicolas), because I designed it on the day I heard that my friend had given birth to her little boy, Nicolas.

I designed this little baby hat to use all the odd ends of sock yarn that a lot of us knitters have lying around our houses. I think it would work beautifully with self-striping, plain or variegated yarn or with mixed colours leftovers (there are ideas for this at the end of the pattern).

3-6 months (6-12 months,12-24 months) to fit approx head circumference of 36-41 (41-46, 46-51)cm / 14-16 (16-18, 18-20)”

105 (130, 158) m / 115 (142, 171) yards of 4ply sock yarn or fingering yarn.

2.5mm (US 1 ½) 80cm (32”) circular needle or size 2.5mm (US 1 ½) DPNs
Or needle size needed to obtain gauge
Darning needle
