    Need help finding a knitting book

    I got this book from the library back when I first learned how to knit (maybe a year ago?) and I can't seem to find it again.

    It's a baby knit book and it had a pattern for a baby hat that was straight knitting, and you just sewed up the top and put a pompom on top. I can almost figure it out, but I cannot remember how many to cast on at all (I'm thinking 60, but ???)

    If anyone could even tell me how to make a similar hat, that would be great too.

    Thanks!! =)

    is it knitting for baby by melanie falick and kristin nicholas? i've made a hat matching that description from this book.

    it's a very easy pattern. the original dimensions are 14" x 8-1/2". just knit every row to these dimensions. fold long-ways in half. sew up the sides and top. sew/tack the sewn corner to the folded corner. make and attach a pom-pom.

    this fits up to 24 months.

    the original yarn is brown sheep lamb's pride worsted on size 9 needles. gauge is 16 sts x 32 rows = 4", with a cast on of 56 stitches for the pattern.

    but if you just check your gauge, you can use any yarn and needle you want. i used koigu on a tiny needle (don't remember the size).
