Free Pattern: Beanie with Crossed Texture Detail Row - Premie
Newborn size here.
3 month size here.
Whipped up this simple premie hat and had to share. I think the color change to a lighter color on the detail row makes the hat.
I'm saving up all these premie hats to give to a NICU someday. I have loved hearing from some of you who do this; anybody else make hats to donate? How did you get connected to the hospital?
