When you're looking for crochet hats to find even the smallest of baby heads, this Adorably Elfish Preemie Hat should be first on your list. Perfect for the newest member of the family, this crochet preemie hat is perfect for wintertime. If you have the means, you could easily work up multiple hats to donate to a charity of your choice so that no baby goes without a cute crochet hat this season. Otherwise, spread your holiday cheer while keeping the little one's head warm at all times.

Notes: On the Rounds that are joined:
- Starting chain does NOT count as a stitch
- Each round is started in the same stitch as your starting chain
- The end of each round is joined by slip stitching in the first hdc of the round, not the starting chain
