Preemie Newborn Kaylee Hat Crochet Pattern
This is such a precious preemie/newborn crochet hat pattern with a sweet heart embellishment! This hat is very simple and cute. If you are looking for a preemie pattern to use, to make several for donations this is the pattern to use!
The crochet hat pattern is sized from 1-3 pound preemies to 9-11 pound babies, so you can make this hat for any newborn you know, or make a bunch in different sizes to donate to a local hospital or charity that cares for little ones.
The little crochet heart on the side of the hat is easy to make and just adds to the level of cuteness – perfect for newborn photos!
