Our preemie hat drive and contest is still going on!
We are still asking folks to bring us creative Preemie Hats. I finished my first one in record time. (Do you know how QUICK tiny hats are?)
I made a simple one color tea-bag (rectangular top) style hat. It's not too fancy, just a cute shape for a tiny head with a bit of alternating knit and purl stitching for texture interest.
I used our free preemie hat pattern to give me an idea of the number of stitches needed for correct sizing and then just let things flow. The Plymouth Dreambaby DK yarn is soft and I'm sure the dusty blue color will look great on some little distinguished gentleman in the NICU.
