Knitted Preemie Hat

I have been making hats for the boys and I was thinking maybe you would want the pattern. I had this pattern for over 10 years and before the twins coming, I would make them for Preemies in the hospital. They love to have little hats for the babies. I would wash mine first before I gave them away. So maybe you'll make some for a hospital near you.
I would rate these very easy to make.

Supplies; Baby Yarn and size 3  double pointed needles


1. Cast on 78 stitches, divide  on 4 needles

2. Knit 1, Purl 1  in a ribbing pattern for 2 1/4".

3. Knit rows (stockinette stitch) for 1 1/2"  Total measurement of hat is 3 3/4"

4. You will start decreasing; " K 3, K2 tog, K 3, K2 tog" for one round. Then Knit the next round.  Repeat these two rounds until there are 22 stitches left on needles.

5. Thread yarn onto a tapestry needle and draw threw all remaining stitches, pull tightly and secure.

6.  Attach a pom - pom or a ribbon bow on top of the hat if you like.

Tip; leave a small tail when casting on. That way you can tell when you go around each time.

Till next time
