Baby’s First Preemie Hat 5 – 6 lbs
In the tutorial, I refer to a homemade diagram that I used to understand the growth of this hat. I have included that crochet diagram into my article below for you to view. You are welcome to download this diagram if it can help you.
These make for great donations for those in need who are dealing with a preemie size baby. Be conscious to deal with the tail ends. I address that in this tutorial.
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.
