The original Baby Hat Pattern
 Adorable small fitting ribbed peaked cap perfect for the little man. A Reader requested the popular Cute as a Button Pattern for a small baby 14 inches around. the problem making the original pattern any smaller means you start to lose the effect of the ribbing. So with a little bit of tweaking to the original pattern here is Cute as a Button Hat for newborns

I used Red Heart Bella  in white (Buy Now)and a 3.50mm hook
Terms and pattern are written in US.



Notes: I would suggest you read through this pattern, you will see there are different chains at the beginning of different rounds, so watch out for those changes. 
Especially RND 10. where we are going to start decreasing the V stitches in the round
 for the shaping of the hat.   Please remember this hat started out as a larger baby hat ad adult hat,  so we can keep the shaping and ribbing we have had to play around with it a little. 
Rnd 11: decrease by working the 2 dc of the previous rounds V stitch together in Front Post Double Crochet
As always any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
