I love this quick and easy to make cluster stitch hat, I was asked countless times for a crochet pattern for this hat after I posted the picture (left) of the adorable white hat Pattern.
People were asking me If I would consider writing a pattern to create something similar.
(This Pattern has been recently checked; re-written October 2018.

For the SMALLEST Preemie size (grey baby hat in picture ) I used hook size
You can also use 2 strands held together of DK.
If you feel the hat will be too small you may find you need to add in another round of Increase's.
A great video to watch on how to do this can be found here
1st Size Newborn 5.00mm hook
