Final Round for Trim
Use either of the trim choices listed above
You can add a pompom and a ribbon woven through the brim row's of hats, or leave the hat bare. Both look cute! You can also vary the size of preemie hat just by using the f hook with the newborn instructions, or doing fewer sts at the top, adding more sts to make it larger. Play around with this and have fun.
