Crochet Preemie Bonnet
I worked up this crochet preemie bonnet some time ago and had forgotten about it because I had stuffed it in a bag of items to sell at a craft fair. It’s a good thing I didn’t sell it because I’d not written out a pattern for it.
The other day as I was trying to find some yarn, I had come across the preemie bonnet I’d worked up, and had put it on my desk so I would remember.
Normally I make my bonnet patterns paid pattern but I’ve decided to make this preemie crochet bonnet a free pattern because I know that there are a lot of women out there that love to work up preemie hats for donation and charities, let’s start sending bonnets!
I have 2 of these preemie sized bonnets that I myself will be donating to the hospital I live near.
Crochet Preemie Bonnet Pattern Notes…
Click HERE for pattern difficulty ratings.
Yarn: I used Bernat Baby Coordinates Yarn, my testers have tried some of the other Bernat Light #3 yarns with same results.
- v-st = (dc, ch 1, dc) all in same sp.
- scv-st = (sc, ch 1, sc) all in same sp.
- Hdcv-st = (hdc, ch 1, hdc) all in same sp.
- Long sc in ch3 sp from previous row
3 Ch3 space and v-sts by 3 rows of pattern = 3 inch square.
**This pattern is worked all in one piece starting out worked in rounds then switching to rows.**
**It has been brought to my attention that some feel it would not be safe to have ties on the bonnet, the bonnet can be left without the ties (as pictured below) or reduce the length of the ties**
Adding Braided Ties..
There is a video tutorial for adding braided ties available HERE. I cut 24 strip of yarn, 12 for each side.
