Premie Baby Hat

This pattern is written 'flat' so there is some seaming up the back to do.

This hat is good for a 1-3lb sized premie.
I used size 3.25 needles.  Gauge is not critical since these stretch and premies vary in size.

Cast on: 40 stitches

K1,P1 ribbing for 1 inch.
Next row:  Knit
Next row:  Purl
Continue these 2 rows until total length from beginning is 3 inches ending on Purl row.

Begin decreases:

*K6, K2tog* repeat across row.
*P5, P2tog* repeat across row.
*K4, K2tog* repeat across row.
*P3, P2tog* repeat across row.
*K2, K2tog* repeat across row.
*P1, P2tog* repeat across row.
*K2tog across row. 5stitches.
 
Using yarn needle, pull tail through 5 sts on needle and sew back seam and weave in the ends.
