Preemie Hat

A co-worker's new baby daughter was born a little early, about two months early to be exact. I guess she couldn't wait any longer to greet the world. Plus, the best things in life come in small packages. She will be spending some time in the NICU as a precautionary measure, since her lungs are so immature. As a welcome to the world gift, I whipped up this little precious pink preemie hat. It took me a couple of hours, but I suspect I could complete a new hat in less time now that I know the pattern.                


This picture shows it next to a Nintendo 3DS for a size reference. The 3DS measures about 5 1/2 inches long to give you a better idea how big this hat is. I just cannot get over how little it is. I used the Half-Double Crochet Preemie Baby Cap from Handcrafting with Love, which is really easy to follow.
