A preemie cap worked in the round from the brim up, with a yarn-over cable motif. Cables are ribbing, and the cables in this wee hat will expand as your tiny infant grows!

Before we met, two of my best friends had preemies. One preemie for Allegra, and two preemies for Lesley. When Lesley announced she was expecting, she expressed her trepidation that she may have yet another preemie. I began work on this hat knowing I was making a hat for a baby whose birth size was completely unpredictable.

The solution: A preemie cap worked in the round from the brim up, with a yarn-over cable motif. Cables are ribbing, and the cables in this wee hat will expand as your tiny infant grows! Ideal for full-term infants too!

Please work this pattern using version 4.1, as earlier versions have errors.
