Dreamie Preemie: Free Knit Hat Pattern



Dreamie Preemie is a knit hat pattern worked either flat or in the round. This pattern is very customizable and ranges from size extra small-extra large in preemie sizes. This is a great hat pattern for donating to organizations and charities. The yarn I used is not recommended for preemies as the glitter would be to harsh so please keep in mind which yarn you use before donating or gifting to a preemie.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider how to spur one another to love and to good works. 
Hello, my name is Destiny aka Dezzyloops. I love trying new things and I’m always learning, growing, sharing and creating. Designing has always been a dream of mine ever since I learned to knit and crochet at 8. I love how it allows me to dip back into my childhood creativity and wonder and create beautiful pieces that people can enjoy and feel beautiful and empowered while wearing them. Thank you so much for making the Sam Cowl pattern. I hope you enjoyed it. I would love for you to tag me so I can see your progress pictures/ finished projects

Yours truly, Dezzyloops
