This perfect newborn baby hat is knit flat, on 2 needles. I find this much easier when working with such small hats. This "first hat" is designed to fit baby while in the hospital, this pattern includes 3 sizes to cover all babies. Small Preemie, Larger Preemie, and Newborn (0-3 months). Makes a GREAT shower gift, or hospital gift! Knit with sportweight yarn, this hat is great for all seasons. Details include attractive striped texture, smooth ribbed brim, and an optional top knot (directions for with and without are included). This is an easy-to-read 4 page pattern with full color photos. Sizes: Newborn (0-3 mo), Smaller Preemie and Larger Preemie (ALL included!) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic knitting skills GAUGE Gauge: Worsted: 22 sts and 30 rows = 4 inches SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS newborn (0-3 months) preemie sizes PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Simply Soft works great.

I adore knitting and crocheting. I don't understand how people can sit and watch a movie and NOT be knitting or crocheting! Such wasted opportunity. =) My mother taught me how to do both right about the time I started Kindergarten. And here I am 40 years later, designing my own patterns. Although I still do buy quite a few from fellow designers! In my spare time I enjoy (duh!) knitting and crocheting, reading my Nook, walking... spare time is limited these days with nursing classes. If only I could find a way to knit while I study...
