{free pattern} wee willie winky newborn hat

virtù - newborn wee willie winky hat -

I just love Wee Willie Winky Hats. There is something about them that I find super adorable and cute. I was determined to knit one for Baby Ace but experienced real issues finding a pattern small enough for a newborn baby. That being the case I worked out my own pattern to fit my newborn baby boy. You can download the PDF pattern here.

Baby Ace’s newborn head circumference was 36cm. I knitted up the hat in 8ply cotton which is soft and not scratchy for my babe’s delicate little head.

  11. My niece has recently lost twin girls at 21 weeks, she wanted to dress them but found there were no garments in hospital to dress the girls in.
    When she got home she started the Peggy and Pearl community on facebook, and asked family and friends if they could crochet or knit tiny items for tiny babies who do not survive and she now contributes these items to hospitals.
    I was looking for a hat pattern and think that yours will be ideal.
    Thank you
