Day 29 - The Shadow Stripes Hat designed by Patti Pierce Stone. I love how the purl stitches create the swirl stripe pattern in this hat and the ribbing pattern is unique. The PDF can be downloaded for free here.
Day 31 - The Three Textured Baby Hat designed by Heather Tucker. While the basic hat pattern is the same, Heather has designed three different textures for you to choose from for your hat. I chose the King Charles Brocade design, but you can choose the Little Checks or the English Diamond blocks. You can get the pattern for all three on her blog here.
Day 32 - The Half Double Crochet Preemie Hat from Handcrafting with Love. I didn't work my rows in the back loops as the pattern calls for cuz I just noticed that the pattern calls for it when I was verifying links for this post (oops!) which is probably why I felt the pattern worked out to be a bit small and I worked extra rows to compensate. Once completed but before joining I worked a pom pom at the top by chaining 15 and then slip stitching to the next row all across the top. Then join the sides and gather the top. You can find the free pattern in sizes extra small to extra large here.
Day 33 - The Preemie Beanie designed by Lyn Rowley for her grandson who was born at 30 weeks. It is easily adjustable but as written it will fit a small newborn. You can find the pattern over at Rowley Poly Bird here. This was worked up in Simply Soft yarn.
I can't believe there are only 6 hats left! Have a great week.
Until next time,
