Changing It Up

Most of the hats I've been making for The Preemie Project lately have been simple and basic (like the blue one and the multi-color one). That's because I can finish these quickly and therefore have more to donate. Sometimes though, I need a change of pace, so I searched my patterns and made the pink one that was designed by Libby. It's still a quick hat to knit and it turns out so cute! I need to make this one more often.

Pattern: Mock Rib and Eyelet Preemie Hat
Yarn: Bernat Softee Baby
Needles: US 5 DPNS
Size: I used the instructions for the Large Preemie size, but mine ended up one size smaller--Circumference 10"-11" for a 3-5 pound baby

  1. I love this pattern! I used it for my very first preemie project donations. I also crocheted a little flower that I attached to top. You can see pics here http://cvenppdonations.blogspot.com/2006/01/white-cabled-hats.html

  4. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can do the mock cable! It's my sweater! How cool! They are cute and inspiring as always.

  6. I'm addicted to Libby's hat pattern! I've made 5 this month, with Michelle's easy booties to match! Fortunately I ran out of yarn, and had to move on to something else, or I'd be sitting in my room just knitting them over and over. Now, to blog them...
