  1. Hi Melissa, I’m very sorry for your family’s loss. I am happy that the patterns will be useful – although it breaks my heart that they are necessary. Thinking of you, Rhondda

  2. A family member of mine lost a child at 20 weeks so I wanted to make hats to hopefully give to hospitals and such. I was not prepared for how small the child’s heads are that are going to go into these hats. Thank you for making the patterns.

  3. Love making these little hats. Keeps me out of trouble.
    Question my gauge is off I think, I get the 3.5 ” tall but I don’t get the 4.5″ wide unless I stretch it a bit. Is that the correct way to measure the gauge? Used 5.5 hook and worstedbwrihhtb #4

  4. Hi Marie, I’m contacting a couple people who I know collect hats for charities. I will let you know who to contact soon 🙂 Thank you, Rhondda

  5. Have crochet lots of hats from preemie to adult, would like to send them to a charity that could use them–any ideas? The hospitals are full of items until mid summer. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
