HeartStrings Seemingly Seamless 2-Needle Preemie Hat (B7)
 

This preemie hat is simply knit flat back and forth on 2 needles in a herringbone lace and ribbed pattern stitch. What is clever is the seemingly seamless seam that turns the flat knitting into a circular hat. This pattern reveals the secret that makes it work.

The lace stitch pattern is a version of faggot stitch called herringbone. Columns of herringbone alternate with 2,2 ribbing so that elasticity is maximized for a good, yet relaxed fit across a range of premature baby head sizes. What is neat is in the finishing, where the seam is made in the same herringbone stitch, and thus appears to be ?seamless?.

Technique: Knit
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
For Size: Designed to fit the range of sizes of premature baby heads reported to me by my local Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Standard-issue hats in the Unit are a relaxed 3" across (measured flat) and can expand to 5" across, with an overall length of 6" (allowing that the hat brim can be turned back an inch or so). The sizing and elastic design of this Preemie Hat is in accordance to these NICU guidelines.
Yarn Required: 60 yds Fingering Weight Yarn
Gauge: 10 sts = 1" over stitch pattern with relaxed ribbing; 6 sts = 1" when fully stretched
Suggested Needle/Hook Size: US 3 (3.25mm) Needles
