This adorable hat is quick to knit up, and it’s the perfect gift for a premature baby or a full-term newborn. The pattern is written for two different weights of yarn, so you can choose your favourite from your local yarn store or from your stash. I like to knit them in self-striping yarn to really show off the zig-zag pattern created by the increases and decreases, but they also look cute — and even more like tulips! — when they’re knit in solid yarn with a bit of green during the last inch or so.
You can see the Tulip Preemie Hat pattern on Ravelry and have a look at the projects other people have already made.
