This hat can be made with a size F hook and less rounds for a preemie hat.
It can be made with a size H hook and more rounds for a larger or older baby.
Round 5 – 8 is where you personalize the length of the hat. Make as many or as few rounds needed so the hat is as long as needed to cover your head.
You can also make extra rounds if you want a brim to roll up.
For Your Information:
This hat was made with leftover Simply Soft worsted acrylic yarn, a size G hook.
