Knitted Boob Hat

Posted by KnittingDane on Mon, 2009-11-09 13:37

This Boob Hat just had to be knit. I've seen it in several version, both knit and crocheted.  Here's my own pattern for the Boob Hat / Breast Beanie

Finally I can breastfeed discreetly. Mosking

The Breast Beanie or Boob Hat

The Breast Beanie fits Thora at age 2 ½ months with a head circumference approx. 40 cm. It's knitted on a 4 mm needle with a knitting gauge of 20 stitches per 4 inches in stockinette stitch.

You will need a skein of skin color, and a darker leftover for the nipple.

Cast on 72 in skin color, and knit in the round in stockinette stitch until you reach your preferred height. Remember that the rolling edge will take some of the height.

Begin decrease rounds on every other round (even rounds: knit all stitches):

  • Round 1: *k6, k2tog* Repeat from * to * to the end
  • Round 3: *k5, k2tog* Repeat from * to * to the end
  • Round 5: *k4, k2tog* Repeat from * to * to the end
  • Round 7: *k3, k2tog* Repeat from * to * to the end

At round 8 switch to a darker color. Knit all stitches. Continue the decrease rounds on every other round (even rounds: knit all stitches):

  • Round 9: *k2, k2tog* Repeat from * to * to the end
  • Round 11: *k1, k2tog* Repeat from * to * to the end
  • Round 13: k2tog to the end

You will now have 9 stitches on the needle. Knit 3 rounds in stockinette stitch. Break the yarn and pull it through the remaining stitches. Weave in all ends.

The Breast Beanie fits Thora at age 2 ½ months with a head circumference approx. 40 cm. It's knitted on a 4 mm needle with a knitting gauge of 20 stitches per 4 inches in stockinette stitch. It's no problem changing the pattern to fit your own yarn and needles. Just remember that the number of stitches should be dividable by 8.

Last but not least my dear daughter...
