Start your sewing a baby hat with joining two small parts of cap together with seam allowance about 1 - 1.5 cm.
Note: Begin stitching all details from top part, as shown on this photo.

Decorative stitches on face side of hat
It is time to make the most difficult thing. You need to make a few finishing stitches on face side of hat. To make them smooth and symmetrical is very hard. So I advise you make it on test pieces of knit fabrics before sewing on hat or to do not make them at all.
Final steps of sewing a baby hat
Inner corners of striped knit fabric can be trim with scissors before sewing.
Now, you need to attach the striped band to bottom edge a hat. First put it into wrong side of hat. Pin it together before sewing on sewing machine.
Place your both hat's pieces under presser foot and sew all the way around with a 1.5 cm seam allowance. To perform this operation use a straight stitch sewing machine.
For this last sewing operation it's best to use an overlock. You can process these cut edges of fabric with zig zag stitches also.
