This hat - knit in the round with occasional purl ridges and a flat top - reminded me of a layer cake… which I last had at a birthday party… and preemies are babies who are born too soon… which means they get an “early birthday”… and thus the name of this hat was “born”: the Too Early Birthday hat.

It’s a simple but eye-catching design, just the thing to make for wee babes needing some love.
