In an effort to do some charity work, I decided to make some preemie hats. The first one is from the Hip Knit Hats book I mentioned in the last post. The pattern is for an adult size hat which is knit in bulky yarn on size 10.5 or 11 needles. I used aran weight Cashmerino by Debbie Bliss and size 7 needles which reduced the hat to the perfect size! I inadvertently forgot the ridges of garter stitch which were supposed to be at the brim, so I just folded the brim up. I love the top knot. My preemie hats are modelled by none other than Tiny Tears since I don't have a preemie lying around the house!
