Preemie/Newborn Snowman Hats by Cream Of The Crop Crochet

It’s the last Friday for us to celebrate Christmas in July. And once again, we have Cream Of The Crop Crochet to help us to make this celebration possible. Today, we have a cute little snowman hat to fit the little heads. We have four baby sizes from preemie 1-3 pound babies to 9-11 pound babies.

With that said, you could take that cute nose and buttoned smile and eyes and stitch it onto any sized hat that you want.
