You can add a pompom and a ribbon woven through the brim row, 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.
