How to Crochet a Preemie Hat

I love to crochet. I have never crocheted a preemie hat but one day, I decided to try because I had some leftover yarn. The leftover yarn wasn't long enough for a big project but it was perfect for a small hat. One evening, I sat down with a cup of coffee and just crocheted until I ran out of yarn. These hats are great if you know someone who has a preemie baby or just to donate them. I am grateful that my grandmother taught me how to crochet. She taught me the basics and I learned the rest by watching YouTube videos. It's amazing how much you can learn by watching videos on YouTube. I am not good at writing out patterns. So if this is not easy please let me know.

Items Needed:

Yarn (any color)

Crochet Needle ( any size, I prefer the 5 needles)

Sewing needle (optional, to weave in the ends)

Instructions

Chain 3.

Row 1: You will need to do 12 double crochet (dc) in the 3rd chain. Then do a slip stitch. Chain 2 then turn over.

Row 2: You will need to double crochet (dc) in the same stitch as chain 2, then 2 double crochet (dc) in each stitch. Then do a slip stitch. Chain 2 then turn over.

Row 3: You will need to double crochet (dc) in the same stitch. 1 double crochet (dc) in next stitch, 2 double crochet in next stitch, repeat around. Then do a slip stitch. Chain 2 then turn over.

Rows 4–7: You will need to crochet 1 double crochet (dc) in the same stitch as chain 2. 1 double crochet (dc) in each double crochet (dc) around. Then do a slip stitch. Chain 1 then turn over.

Row 8: Do 1 single crochet in each double crochet (dc) all around until you get to the end. Then do a slip stitch. Cut the yarn and pull it through the hat.
