This is my Genesis Bobble Hat / Beanie Hat in size preemie.
As it is made in DK yarn (8ply) it is delicate making it perfect for those early arrivals. A great quick make for charity donations too. A full version of this pattern in sizes Preemie to 10 years is available in my pattern stores.
Please note that this pattern is in UK terminology.
18 sts and 12 rows in treble crochet equals 10cm square.
Tension / gauge is vital to this pattern. You don’t want to spend time making a hat which turns out to be too big or too small due to the tension/gauge of your stitches. Check your tension!
