I'm the madmonkeyknitter from www.madmonkeyknits.com and I design and sell knitting patterns.This is my Baby Silk Striped Beanie Cap knitting pattern. Its worked flat on 4 mm needles in any dk yarn of your choice and is knitted entirely in one piece. There is no need for any stiffener in the peak so no laundry problems. I have chosen Debbie Bliss Pure Silk which makes this beanie cap so light and silky that baby won't want to take it off, even at bedtime! The knitting pattern covers sizes S,M & L so can be made to fit premature babies to toddlers with a head circumference between 14 - 20 inches.
