Pink Preemie Hat

Wait no longer.  Here is today's pattern.  It is an easy pattern done with Caron Cuddle Soft Yarn, pink pompador, size G Hook, some white pompador yarn. 

Fpdc - Front post double crochet

Row 1:  Ch 6, join to form circle.  Ch 3, 15 dc in circle hiding tail of yarn.  Join to top of ch 3.

Row 2:  Ch 3.  *Dc, Ch 1, dc  in next st, 1 dc in next st* Repeat around ending with 1 dc and join to top of ch 3.

Row 3 to 8:  Ch 3.  *Skip next st, 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc in next st, skip next st, 1 fpdc in next* around.  End with fpdc, join to top of ch 3.  8 pattern spaces, 8 fpdc.

Row 9:  Change to contrasting color.  Ch 1, *sc in same space, sc in each dc to ch 1 space.  Put sc, ch 1, sc in ch 1 space.*  Join and hide ends.

Like I said, this is an easy pattern.  Using larger yarn will make hat bigger.  Have fun.  Remember if you want to send me hats for the babies, let me know.

Have a good one.....Nan
