These little preemie sized bear cub hats came about when my daughter requested something for her twin sons to wear during their stay in the NICU. The pattern can easily be made larger, for newborn or older babies, by sizing up on yarn and needles.

Large (for 12.5” head/4.5lbs - 5lbs) ~ 10.5” circumference, 4.75” height
