Lisa Jane loves to crochet and is starting to write down the patterns of the projects that she crochets.
Turn Leftover Yarn Into a Cute Crocheted Preemie Hat
I love to crochet. I had never crocheted a preemie hat before, but I decided to try it because I had some leftover yarn. The leftover yarn wasn't long enough for a big project, but it was perfect for a small hat. One evening, I sat down with a cup of coffee and just crocheted until I ran out of yarn. These hats are great if you know someone who has a preemie baby or if you want to crochet a bunch of hats to donate.
I am grateful that my grandmother taught me how to crochet. She taught me the basics, and I learned the rest by watching YouTube videos. It's amazing how much you can learn by watching videos on YouTube.
I am not good at writing out patterns. So if this is not easy to follow, please let me know.
- Yarn (any color)
- Crochet needle (any size; I prefer the 5 needles)
- Sewing needle (optional, to weave in the ends)
Row 1: You will need to do 12 double crochet (dc) in the 3rd chain. Then do a slip stitch. Chain 2 then turn over.
Row 2: You will need to double crochet (dc) in the same stitch as chain 2, then 2 double crochet (dc) in each stitch. Then do a slip stitch. Chain 2 then turn over.
Row 3: You will need to double crochet (dc) in the same stitch. 1 double crochet (dc) in next stitch, 2 double crochet in next stitch, repeat around. Then do a slip stitch. Chain 2 then turn over.
Rows 4–7: You will need to crochet 1 double crochet (dc) in the same stitch as chain 2. 1 double crochet (dc) in each double crochet (dc) around. Then do a slip stitch. Chain 1 then turn over.
Row 8: Do 1 single crochet in each double crochet (dc) all around until you get to the end. Then do a slip stitch. Cut the yarn and pull it through the hat.

That is fantastic! I am useless at sewing, knitting and crocheting, but I totally respect people who have the skill. I didn't now what you meant by a preemie hat, duh, lol! but yes I got it in the end.
