Micro - Preemie Baby Hats

I decided to make micro-preemie sizes of a few of my little hats -
perfect for very early premature babies or Angel babies born too soon.

  3. This pattern is amazing, and it came at the right time for Little H who is small but strong & I can't wait to gift these on to the family; I've so far knitted him 5 of your prem hats all in different sizes so as he grows he has another one there for him. Last thing a family with a prem baby needs to look around for hats to fit thank you for sharing these patterns.

    God Bless xx
