Stuffing For Brains

 
 
I make a lot of things for coworkers. Mostly they request them or it's something that I can make which is personal for gifts.

Anyway, one of my coworkers has a niece with a little preemie baby that was born two months early. He came before the baby shower even! So I made this set of three hats for them in Auburn colors (parents are huge Auburn U fans, I'm told). I've seen lots of pictures of this little guy and I'm glad to know he's doing well. So I was very happy to make these three little hats for him to grow into. :)
Picture
The first hat, on the top of the stack, is about big enough to fit on an orange (this is how big his head was described to be -- SO TINY!), the middle one is about newborn baby sized, the bottom one is toddler or 12 month old size.

Yarn:
Orange ~ TLC Essentials: Persimmon
Blue ~ Red Heart Super Saver: Royal

The yarn in the photo looks brighter than it does in person... Hmm. Though, I'm told the father was quite happy with the colors. :) Considering I don't follow college football at all, I'm glad I did well!

Original patterns (or, you know, general increasing stitches in a round for the first two, the big one was more of an actual pattern).
