Pattern Description:

Pity the punk babies. They have no hair. They have no control over what they get dressed in - and so they're stuck with duckies or puppies. All they can do to show their true colors is to yell (which they do well)! Help support the inner punk in your little one by knitting a skullcap complete with a faux fur fauxhawk.

The inspiration for this hat came on a bus trip across campus. A young man in front of me had the most amazingly colored, fuzzy Mohawk. I was not the only one staring, though I may have been the only one trying to derive a hat from his head. Then I looked down at my newborn, and it hit me - while I could never in a million years get my attorney husband to wear a hat like that, my child wouldn't have a choice!

Note: Hat is worked flat, then grafted along the top and seamed down the side.

Suggested modification: If you want the fur to stand out even more, work the fur stripe in reverse stockinette stitch (purl on right side rows) and the "skin" in regular stockinette stitch (knit on right side rows).


18 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch
