Baby’s First Hat 3 – 4 lbs for Preemies
Learn how to make this Baby’s First Hat using the cluster stitch. It’s a fairly straight forward pattern. It will grow really quick as it’s such a small hat. The clusters make for a nice design allowing the child’s head to breath a bit through the hat.
In the tutorial, I refer to a crochet diagram. I have scanned my notes below and you can use those as a reference point. You can download the diagram I used if it helps you. If you are new to crochet, the tutorial will guide you along.
Be extra conscious on the tails. I show how to finish this off so there is no tails hanging out of your project.
Stitch it Forward
Yarnspirations has released their latest Lookbook called Caron, Stitched with Love. The book of free patterns for both knitters and crocheters have one central theme, charity. It focuses on simple projects and some that require a bit of knowledge of crochet. Personally, I love how the Lookbook allows new crocheters to learn new skills but also for the ones who have some skills to go a step further. Not only is this book charity oriented, but it also a great starting point for crocheters and knitters to do something more than practice with stitches. It will allow them to learn, grow and contribute to their own community with the projects they create.
The project above is from this Lookbook. In this article is one specific pattern and I have a tutorial that matches it for those who need an extra helping hand with the instructions and skills needed to complete the project.
