Pattern: Hello Preemie Hat by Heather Walpole
Suggested Yarn: Wooly Worsted from Ewe Ewe Yarn (worsted / 10ply yarn)
Suggested Needles: US 7 / 4.0mm
Why It's Charity-Friendly:
This free pattern knits up fast on either double points or a long circular needle (if you use the Magic Loop method), and is the perfect quick baby hat pattern. Add the bow for a hat for a baby girl, make the hat in a self-striping or self-patterning yarn for a bit of super simple interest - the possibilities are endless with this pattern!
As an added bonus, the pattern fits preemies perfectly when knit with a thinner worsted like Ewe Ewe's Wooly Worsted, but will make a PERFECT newborn sized hat if knit in a thicker worsted like you find at the big box craft stores!
