  3. Hi Mariana is it okay for me to copy your pattern for myself. I've just knitted some very tiny preemie hats for our local hospital. When I put the picture on Facebook to see if I could get some more people to help my sons' friend asked me to knit one for one of her young friends who has just had a lovely 'little man' who weighs in at 6lbs? Thank you Julie x
