A friend of mine gave birth to her baby at 29 weeks (well, she was either 29 weeks or 31 weeks, the doctors aren’t sure of her true due date). But, either way, the baby was 4 pounds 18.25 inches and absolutely beautiful. She’s thriving in the NICU and mom gets to try to breastfeed today. They think she’ll be there another month at least.
So, while being on semi-bed rest myself, I made her a hat. It’s Bernat Softee Baby, knit on US 6 needles. I had to frog back 3 rounds near the end when I realized I’d made a catastrophic mistake. I also had help tying the knot on top, as I’d made the i-cord too short.
I hope she likes it!
