My LYS in Tuscaloosa, AL has issued a 'challenge' to a yarn shop in New Orleans as to which one can make the most preemie hats by the Bama/LSU game. We already have over 125 hats!!!

If anyone is interested in sending one or two, send me a PM!!!

The preemies heads are very small. My son was 2 mos. premature but to look at him now you wouldn't be able to tell, he is now 15 yrs. old.
If the hat will fit over an orange then it will fit a preemie...

Have a blessed day...

Preemie hats
`When I found out our grandson was a preemie (and all turned out well), I sat down and started knitting preemie hats as my Gift of Thanks to the Universe.

I had a great time making every single one different only to be told that a 2 by 2 rib 2ould be the mot useful.

Ah well, the hat are for the hospital and the kids, not for my enoyment. Great things to carry along to meetings. Brainless knitting.

EASY PREEMIE HAT PATTERN
This is from the top of my head

Size small preemie CO 36-42 Stitches
Size MED-LG Preemie 44-54 sts
NB- 54-62 Sts

Work a Knit 1, Purl 1 across (single rib) or do a double rib (knit 2, purl 2 across) do this for 1 1/2-2 " (All the above is prefrence on what size hat you are making)
After your done with the rib stockenette stitch (knit 1 row, purl 1 row) repeat for 3-4 inches (depending on hat size your making)
then dec
you can knit 2 together across (on knit side of hat) then purl the next size
repeat dec row
purl across then cut yarn leaving a long tail put tail on yarn needle weave through stitches left on needle, pull off of needle then pull up tight. Sew up side and weave in ends.

You can do a different type of decrease but this is just a quickie hat pattern I use alot!
Hope it made since lolololol
