Preemie sized 4 lber;  (Newborn sized) (3-6 months)
(multiples of 2)
Use Size G hook
1/2 oz of sport, DK, or baby weight yarn
(To make the treble crochet (tr) do the following: YO twice, insert hook in next sc.  YO and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), (YO and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times. PUSH the tr to the right side on hat.)

Hat is made from one side to the other (not from the cuff up)  For preemie size hat diameter should measure 10.5"  (12" newborn; 15" for 3-6 months) before stitching seam. 

Ch 18  (22 newborn) (26 3-6 months) (This forms the height of the hat )
Row 1 (Right side): Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across.  Ch 1 and turn.
Row 2: Sc in first sc, (tr in next sc, sc in next st) across. Ch 1 and turn.
Row 3: Sc in each stitch across row. Ch 1 and turn.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 for 32 (36) (40) rows.  End off leaving 12" tail of yarn
Finishing:  Gather top by weaving in and out of the sts.  Pull top tightly.  Fold hat in half and whip st side seam.
Brim: Add yarn at bottom of hat and sc in each st around to form brim.
Sc around for 3 rows.  End off and weave in all yarn ends.

You can make this hat larger or smaller by using a longer or shorter chain to start, and making more or fewer rows.

Wrap yarn around fingers till it looks 'fat enough'.  Then carefully remove it from your fingers,  wrap 2 strands of yarn around the middle, pull as tightly as you can without breaking yarn, tie tightly in a double knot. Now snip thru the loops, it's usually is a bit ragged at this point, so hold it over the garbage and snip till it is fluffy and even :-) To make it even more fluffy, separate the individual strands in the yarn.
