Sweet Stripes Preemie Hat

My hook and I were having a little play yesterday. 

I have been making hats lately, and I wanted to make more - but I needed something to keep my interest ! 
These sweet little hats were the result! I had fun making them, and as they are for preemie babies they were quick to make.

  1. Thank you for taking the trouble to translate American crochet terms to UK ones. Much easier and less confusing for us Brits to follow.
