A friend of a friend of mine just had a baby at 24 weeks. The baby is tiny, under 2#. My friend asked me to make some hats for the baby. I did them in several sizes so the baby could grow into them as she needs them. I even made up my own sizes.
The first 2 hats are sized 0P. This fits a baby under 2". The circumference is 9". Imagine that.
This first one is crocheted from a pattern at Rosie's Cozies. She made hers to fit the same size baby, so I figured it would work.
Then I knitted one that I made the same size. I put 2 pom-poms on it. I do like knitted hats better than crocheted because they have some stretch to them. Ravelry page.
The next size I call a 1P. it should fit a 2-3# baby.
My ravelry page lets you have a pretty good idea how this was done.
This is the same pattern as a hat I made for Eloise when she was born. She got lots of compliments while in the hospital wearing it. She was under 4# and it fit her well.
This is the largest one I made and it is still preemie sized. It's a pattern I'd never done before and sure is cute. I like the bow on it. Check it out here.
Hope you enjoyed this micro Preemie hat show.
