Revised Knitted Preemie Hat For Neo Natal Unit - Day 267 A Block A Day Challenge

No automatic alt text available.
My local Neo Natal Unit prefers these tiny
 knitted Preemie Hats without the pompom,
 so I revised
my pattern to create a pompom type tip
 that is part of the creation so it is more secure. 
I usually make 3 a month since they are quick.
I hope you'll give them a try too. 
Revised Knitted Preemie Hat

Supplies: 

2 pair of US Size #7  - 18 inch circular needles 
( double pointed needles can be substituted) 
Soft cotton or acrylic 4 ply yarn
5 stitch markers, Tapestry needle, Scissors

Directions:

Cast on 48 stitches placing a stitch marker every 8 stitches.
Join in the round, being careful not to twist stitches. 
Knit in the round until Preemie  hat is 4 inches long. 
Decrease for crown of hat:
Row 1 -Add stitch markers every 8 stitches.
Row 2 - K6 K2Tog Slip Stitch marker. Repeat all the way around.
Row 3 - K5 K2tog. Slip Stitch marker. Repeat all the way around.
