Preemie Hats For Evie

Just got done knitting the second of two preemie hats for Evie. I knit the first one flat with a seam like the instructions stated, but I hate seams. So the second one was done in the round.

The hats are done in Bernat Softee Baby. It is sport dk weight yarn. I did the seamed hat on size 6 needles and the non-seamed hat on size 7 DPNs. The color number is 31203. I used this pattern:

The hats are so tiny but so is Evie.

The above picture was take on Evie's birth day, February 10, 2006. That's Andy's hand so you can really tell how small she is. Evie weighed 3 lbs and 9 ounces when she was born.

Evie is two weeks old today. Tomorrow I'm going to Kelly's baby shower. It was planned for 5 weeks before she was due, but Evie had other things in mind!

Ohmygosh, she looks so perfect! Usually premies look...well, like they're early, but she is beautiful!

Both hats are nice, but your modification makes it look better. (You're right, seams suck!) The colors are sweet too.
