I’ve crocheted this hat so many times in so many different color and texture combinations. It’s extremely versatile. I’ve given the derby as a gift, and I’ve donated many to Stitches From the Heart. It’s very easy to change the size from preemie to toddler to adult — just keep increasing between the front posts until you reach the desired size. Play with color so your hat is perfect for the baby who will wear it!
- Various colors of worsted weight yarn (I used Lion Brand kitchen cotton)
- 4.0mm (size “G”) crochet hook
