Preemie Cupcake Hat

I have made 3 hats for the preemie project so far. I haven't been following the guidelines very well--they mostly want pastels, which I find boooooring!

This is my favorite so far, and it is mostly complete. Even better--I wrote the pattern myself, which will be posted eventually.

I think this will look better with a small flower on top, but I don't have the right colors of scraps. It is made with cheap acrylic washable baby yarns, and I can probably make about 5-10 with 2 skeins of yarn.

1 skein Caron Simply Soft, color bone for base

This pattern can be worked in the round with DPNS or on regular needles and seamed up the back.

Very cute! I'd love to be able to see this on a baby, but I don't know how you could swing that.

This is very cute! What a great pattern. I will definitely be putting it on my list of potential baby gifts to make. Thanks!
