Kayleigh Preemie Hat

This hat was made for my friend's preemie baby, born 26 weeks early at only 1 pound.  I wanted to use up my leftovers from her baby blankie and whipped up this little crochet hat. Then I decided that I would post it on Ravelry for sale as a fund raiser for the family.  Any proceeds (aka what's left after website processing fees) will be donated to the family to help fund their medical bills for Kayleigh.

Cost: $3.00 (proceeds donated to the family)
