Basic Preemie Hat Free Knitting Pattern

Basic Preemie Hat Free Knitting Pattern

Hello again fellow knitters!
Today I have a new knitting post, and is a free pattern: Basic Preemie Hat Free Knitting Pattern

Basic Preemie Hat Free Knitting Pattern and video tutorial. Beginner friendly preemie hat pattern. Includes written pattern and video tutorial.

*Disclaimer

 

I started a crochet series, and I planned to make all standard hat sizes. And of course I can’t leave my knitters without free patterns.
So I will also create a series of free knitting patterns to make basic hats in all standard sizes.

As I mentioned in my crochet post I was thinking of naming this series: “Hats for everyone” or “Hats in every size”, and I would appreciate if you can give me your input about which name would be the best fit for this series. (pretty please?)

The hats will be beginner friendly, or at least as beginner friendly a hat can be, taking into consideration that the hats will be knitted in rounds and you need to make decreases.
In any case, I will provide video tutorials to help you with the construction of these hats.

I will be using double pointed needles, but you could also use circular knitting needles.

If you only have straight knitting needles, you can check a free pattern I made for a baby hat that is designed for straight needles. Find it here: Knit Baby hat for beginners – Free Pattern
