Button Hat Pattern

Hey all, I apologize for not posting the second preemie hat pattern for my donate along. I wound up getting a call from my mother yesterday and my dog, my best friend, whom I’ve known for 20 years, died yesterday. It has been a very long, very sad 24 hours. I’m still very sad, but am putting one foot in front of the other and will make it through.

I haven’t heard from anyone who may be joining in yet, but I hope to hear that at least some of you will! On that note, here is the other preemie hat pattern. (I also have it written in larger sizes, so if you’d like me to post them, just leave me a comment!)
