Recently I discovered “Bosnian crochet”, also known as “slip stitch crochet”. If you work only slip stitches into the back loops back and forth in rows, the resulting fabric looks knitted and is very stretchy. Sounds perfect for a hat that can fit various sizes. A fold-up brim also can accommodate various heights as needed.

This hat is worked sideways in rows. Short rows shape the crown. First and last row are joined using slip stitches for an almost invisible seam.

Please check with your chosen NICU about their needs before donating. Thank you.
