Slip Stitch (Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull yarn through, continue to pull yarn through both loops on hook.)

Extra Notes:

This document contains 2 patterns. The Mini pattern will work up to around 2” plus, could fit a small preemie. This size would make a precious cake topper, or other baby shower décor. The Bitty pattern works up to approximately 1.5” when worked with the yarn suggested. Great for key chain, cake reveal, little confetti decorations or other for baby shower.

The Bitty size takes less than 5 minutes to work up! Possibly a bit more for the Minis =)
