When you think of festive crochet hats, you likely think of designs for Christmas or Halloween. But what about St. Patrick's Day? Celebrate the early arrival of a little one in a cute and festive way with the Patty's Preemie Hat. The crochet pattern is almost too cute for words, as it includes a bright green hat complete with a buckle. This beautiful crochet preemie hat includes patterns for sizes ranging between two and six pounds. You'll also love that the crochet pattern is easy to make, so you could create a hat quickly if you're crunched for time. Although the hat doesn't quite replace the mythical pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it is sure to brighten the day of the newborn's parents.

Notes-Hat can be started with a Magic Ring or with the instructions given in Round 1
-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 stitch of the round, not the starting chain

This is so cute, why limit the idea to just babies? Were actually having cold weather this St. Paddys Day, so Im going to work up a couple of these beanies for my husband and myself. Since hes half Irish, we usually go out to celebrate his heritage. One of our favorite locations gives special discounts and prizes if you wear something green to their establishment. Might even win matching t-shirts this time!
