Newborn Pineapple Stacks

May 4, 2014

It is getting cooler in Melbourne and tis the season for woolly hats again, especially for very new people.


This is a version of my Pineapple Stacks Hat for a newborn. I used same cast on and pattern repeats as for the baby size but one less vertical pattern repeat.  Newborns lie down a lot. A hat that comes down over your eyes is no fun when you don’t even know you have arms or how your hands work so this shallower version should be just thing.

The yarn is Jo Sharp Classic DK. I had a little bit in the stash and was inspired by this beautiful natural cream version of Pineapples Stacks. The light colour seems to enhances the textural elements.

Details of the newborn Pineapple Stacks are ravelled here and if you would like to knit a Pineapple Stacks of your very own in any size, the pattern is available for purchase here.

Be well and strong, little person.
