This cute super chunky newborn baby hat is taken from this lovely newborn hats knitting pattern collection.
This pompom hat for newborn babies is a really fast knit. You can knit it up in less than an hour using only a small amount of super chunky yarn. The yarn in the photo is Lana Grossa Regazza Lei, a pure wool yarn that is lovely to work with.

With the ribbing at the bottom, bring the two side edges into the middle, forming a square, and sew up the back seam. Sew up the top seam.
Using a pompom maker, a fork, or your finger, make two small pompoms and attach to the hat corners. The hat also looks great without pompoms, and gives a cat ear impression.
