Preemie Hat 3 Three Sizes {Free Crochet Pattern}

This Preemie Hat is the final hat pattern from my series of crochet donations sent to the Valley Children's NICU. In case you missed the others, Preemie Hat 1 is similar to this pattern, but incorporates a chain stitch with each half double crochet, to add more stretch. Preemie Hat 2 is worked in rows instead of a round, and is a fun hat to make!

I enjoyed making this hat, and I thought it would be nice to "do the math" for everyone on this one. I have patterns three preemie sizes.
If you aren't sure about the size you need, you can always print out my Hat and Headband Size Chart, to keep on hand. It includes preemie sizes.
These preemie hats work up quickly, and they make a beautiful donation gift!
