And in case anyone wants to know, you can get your own doll at Target or Wal*mart in the toy section. Just remember to bring your tape measurer so you know what size preemie (baby doll) you have. Another thing you can remember is that small preemies are born with heads about the size of an apple or orange, so if you don't want to buy a doll you can just buy fresh fruit instead!
Yarn: Soft Baby Solid by Red Heart
- I made this with 2 strands held together.
- Finished hat should fit a 1 pound to 3 pound preemie.
- Repeats are from * to *.
sc 6 st into first ch, connect.
ch 1, *sc 2 into next st, sc* connect.
ch 1, *sc, sc 2 into next st, sc* connect.

continue with pattern adding sc's until you have 11 rows (36 stitches).
ch 1, *sc, sc, sc 2 st tog, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc 2 into next st, sc, sc* connect.
repeat this for 8 rows.
CTM: Thank you for the correction! I have added the 2 stitches needed in red! I no longer have the hat so I think I got them added correctly.
