Hi,<br>
My two daughters are starting their own business sewing, knitting, making skating/dance costumes. They are doing quite well, I am proud of them. I have offered to pay to have them make a baby blanket and a baby hat for all my clients.<br><br>
I am in need of easy, simple baby caps either knitting or crocheting. Also, do they need to use circular needles to knit with? Iknow nothing about knitting, so hopefully they can read the directions, LOL.<br><br>
Thanks!

Can't help you with the knitting info, but I have to say - that is so sweet!<br><br>
A hand-knitted cap/receiving blanket is such a wonderful keepsake for your clients. Way better than the crappy hat they give you in the hospital. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> You have some lucky clients!

I have a simple pattern (rolled brim) that I knit for babies while I'm at births. It involves casting on 64 stitches on a 7 needle (circular), then knitting for five to six inches, then placing markers every eight stitches. After that, knit two together before each stitch marker and move to double pointed needles. When there are four stitches left on the needles, knit 3" of i-cord. Then tie off, knot the i-cord and voila! baby hat!<br><br>
It usually takes me about an hour to knit it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
