It looks tiny because it really is. Realizing that there is very little ‘out there’ for babies that are born prematurely I set about finding patterns that would be suitable.
Thanks to Alli for this great pattern. I used her newborn pattern because my yarn is slightly finer than DK. And I used a 5mm hook. The border is really simple; slip stitches made into the back loop only all the way around several rounds. It’s the first time I’ve tried that and it looks great.
I love the vintage look of this little hat and made up in 100% natural cotton makes it even more authentic. I’ll make a few more of these in other colours and sizes.
So, I haven’t taken my sewing machine out as promised in my previous post. My housekeeping is getting the better of me. But soon..
