Chiq Preemie shell cap


Supplies: 3ply or 4 ply yarn ( washable only)
size F crochet hook

*Slip stitch and chain one ( to step up and prevent your first stitch from being smashed)
Make a magic circle
Rd 1-10 hdc in the loop
Rd 2- 2hdc in stitch for a total of 20 hdc
Rd3- 2hdc in the first, 1 hdc in the next, repeat
* when making a hat we do 2 stitches in one stitch to increase, however if we keep doing 2 in everyone it wont lay right so what we do is equally space it out*
*This is where I stop increasing however preemies come as small as 1 pound up to 6 pounds so make lots of sizes. to make your hat bigger use a bigger hook and or add an extra increase round or two)*

Rd 5- (2hdc,ch1,2 hdc)Shell skip 3 repeat * if you increased more or less and it isn't even and you have one less or more at the last shell thats ok, it won't be noticable.

Rd 6 and until you have the length you want. * they say preemie has should fit on a orange*
slip stitch to the hdc before the chain 1, make your shell in this hdc, skip until the hdc before the next ch 1 and repeat. Email photos of this hat and I will add them to this post with your name and or location :) crochetchiq@gmail.com

Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.
