Preemie Project Boy Hats

The Preemie Project put out a facebook cry for help the other day, they are in desperate need of baby boy newborn hats.  So...  this is what I came up with.  I am not thrilled with them all, but they will serve their purpose.  I used THIS beanie pattern - found that with H hook and simply soft yarn I need to make 7 increasing rows at the beginning.


  1. I like all the different things you've done with Anita's basic pattern, but I have to say that I was somewhat taken aback by your statement that the place you donate to specifically requested "boys' hats." A hat is a hat—especially when we're talking about newborns, do we really have to start gender-typing them *this* early???

  2. Parents that have a baby enjoy having a little hat on them that is appropriate for their gender. They really don't enjoy having a royal blue hat or a Kelly green cap for their little girl. They enjoy having pink or lavender. It's just normal. Don't worry so much about political correctness.
