Single Stripe Beanie - 34 and 36 weeks



Hey hey!

Another very simple preemie beanie for you today. Not too much different from the last one, but still just as easy and the outcome looks great. This pattern is great for using up leftover variegated yarns in the stripe.

  1. What a precious little hat! I have pinned to my Preemie board, and will be adding to my list for donation to the local baby hospital.
