I was at a Christmas concert for Yorkhill Hospital (children's hospital) last night and they had some baby preemie hats for sale. I have loads of DK wool and wondered if any GNetters could recommend a pattern and best place to find it as I would like to make some.

This is the one I do. It is really easy and quick
Double Knit Yarn. No 8 Needles.
Finished Hat weights approx ¾ oz or 25grms
Cast on 30. (36) Stitches
Do not cast on too tight (Leave a length of yarn end to sew seam up with)
Row 1 Knit
Row 2 Purl
Row 3 Knit
Repeat rows 1 to 3 until work measures approx 10" (12")
(14 (16) Purl ridges on each side of work)
Cast off.
Do not cast off tightly
Draw up one side to form a crown.
Sew up side seam.
