Preemie/ Newborn Elf Hat





I know that it's only November, but everything around me is looking like Christmas.  Here in Grand Rapids we got our first snowfall with flakes that are actually sticking!  I am not a cold weather fan, but there is something beautiful and powerful about the first snow coming down.   Maybe it's the excitement I see in my kids' faces, or maybe it's the nostalgic memories of seeing the first snowfall every year as a kid.  Either way, it makes me think of Christmas!

That being said, it's time for a Christmas hat pattern!  This will work perfectly for any newborn pics, and using a hook smaller will make this ideal for a preemie!



Hook: G or H hook for preemie
           I hook for newborn
Yarn:  Worsted Weight

Color A:
Round 1: Start with a Magic Ring. Ch1, 6sc in ring.  Join to first sc. (6sc)
Round 2: Ch1, (1hdc, 2hdc) around. Join to first hdc. (9hdc)
Round 3: Ch1, 1hdc in each stitch around. Join to first hdc. (9hdc)
Now, switch to next color.  I do not cut the first color.  I drop it and then pull it back up the next time I need it.  This helps so you don't have to weave in a bunch of ends.

Color B:
Rounds 4-6:  Ch1, 1hdc in each stitch around. Join to first hdc. (9hdc)

Color A:
Rounds 7-9:  Ch1, 1hdc in each stitch around. Join to first hdc. (9hdc)

Color B:
Rounds 10-12:  Ch1, 1hdc in each stitch around. Join to first hdc. (9hdc)

Color A:
Rounds 13-15:  Ch1, 1hdc in each stitch around. Join to first hdc. (9hdc)

Color B:
Rounds 16-18:  Ch1, 1hdc in each stitch around. Join to first hdc. (9hdc)

Color A:
Rounds 19-21:  Ch1, 1hdc in each stitch around. Join to first hdc. (9hdc)

Color B:
Rounds 22-24:  Ch1, 1hdc in each stitch around. Join to first hdc. (9hdc)

Color A:
Round 25: Ch1, 1hdc in each stitch around. Join to first hdc. (9hdc)
Round 26: Ch2 (counts as first hdc), 1 hdc in same stitch, 2hdc in each stitch around.  Join to top of chain 2. (18hdc)
Round 27:  Ch2, 1 hdc in same stitch, 1 hdc in next stitch, (2hdc in next stitch, 1hdc in next stitch) around. Join. (27hdc)

Color B:
Round 28:  Ch2, 1hdc in same stitch, 1 hdc in next 2 stitches, (2hdc in next stitch, 1 hdc in next 2 stitches) around. Join. (36hdc)
Round 29:  Ch2, 1hdc in same stitch, 1hdc in next 8 stitches, (2hdc in next stitch, 1hdc in next 8 stitches) around.  Join. (40hdc)
Rounds 30: Ch2, 1 hdc in each stitch around.  Join(40hdc)

Color A:
Round 31-33: Ch2, 1 hdc in each stitch around.  Join(40hdc)

Color B:
Rounds 34-35: Ch2, 1 hdc in each stitch around.  Join(40hdc)

Color C:
Round 36:  Ch1, 1sc in each stitch around. Join. (40sc)
Round 37:  TURN!!!  Working in BACK LOOPS ONLY, 1hdc in each stitch around.  Join (40hdc)
Round 38:  Ch1, 1hdc in each stitch around.  Join.(40hdc)
Round 39: slst in next stitch, *In next stitch (sc, dc, picot*, dc, sc) slst into next 2 stitches* repeat from * until end. Finish off.

*PICOT: ch3, slst into 3rd chain from hook

Make a pom pom for the top of the hat in Color C. I use the Clover Pom Pom Maker.  If you don't have one of these babies, you need to get one!  Get it here.
