In an effort to use all this greenish,blue/yellow yarn that reminds me of a dinosaur skin, I was able to create 4 NICU hats for boys. Each one is a little different, but all were made on a scarf loom using 18 or 16 pegs. All the hats have the brim that is flexible to fit any size head. The brim is 1 row e-wrap and 1 row purl for at least 4 rows, some of these hats have 6 or 8 rows for the brim. On three of the hats, I added a cornflower blue yarn to compliment the dinosaur skin greenish blue/yellow yarn.
And I can proudly claim that I have used all the dinosaur skinned yarn, for boys that is. Admittedly, I do have the same yarn in reddish, pink/yellow for girl dinosaurs. But I digress. My hope is that these hats will keep 4 little baby boys warm while in the NICU and cause their families to smile.
