What are you most proud of? Helping new Moms who do not have a cap for their baby to go home in. The hospital was very excited to get them. Check with your hospital first i was told the other hospital in town does not want them

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This pattern can be made in an hour. Double crochet is stitch used to make cap and single crochet and chains make the edge.

So nice! I work with a crochet group that donates hats and other items to a local hospital also. They are always very pleased to receive whatever we have made. They like preemie blankets and hats especially, but also other layette items for babies that go home with low-income families. They also asked for holiday-themed hats and blankets, which we have had fun with...finding patterns and crocheting. I applaud your efforts on behalf of the babies!

Thanks Debbie. I had to stop making the baby hats and make 44 hats for Christmas gifts. I have 3 baby afghans and 2 wedding afghans to make in 2012. I hope to get back on the baby hats this year.
