Santa's Favorite Preemie Crochet Hat is perfect for the little preemie that just can't wait to celebrate the holidays. This Christmas crochet hat is an easy pattern to work up - and since it's so small, you'll be finished with it in a jiffy! This half-double crochet pattern features an easy and repeating stitch pattern and minimal color changes. There's a separate instruction section for the buckle detail of the hat, an adorable little feature making this crochet hat different from all the other red Santa hats. 

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

This is so sweet. I make things like this for the local hospital and this will be perfect for next month. The little ones can sure use them and the families will love having them. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful pattern and inspiration. It will certainly be put to go use.

This is great for those first photos during the holiday season. Not only is it a stylish hat, but it'll help keep baby warm.
