One of the customers from my Etsy shop contacted me asking about preemie patterns, and I realized that I didn’t have any. I added “preemie patterns” to my list of crochet ideas and projects to do. And this is the first preemie pattern that I’ve made.
I used size F crochet hook and baby sport yarn (Beehive Baby Sport by Patons). The finished hat measures approximately 13 inches in circumference, and 5 inches in height, quite small.
I used the same stitch that I used for the last baby blanket I made. And I love how this beanie turned out. I made five of them as I wanted to try different color combinations. It also looks cute when made with variegated yarn.
I will be mailing these preemie baby hats to Stitches from the Heart charity.
