Patterns for Premature Babies

Hi, Fellow Quilters, I'm so happy that you are willing to make one (or more) caps for our premature babies in Galveston. Actually, you can make any size as some of the full term babies need special care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). When you are choosing a size for preemies, think about Meyer lemon size.


Please do not use wool yarn - the nurses have to sterilize the caps prior to use and wool would mat up. Cotton or acrylic or polyester will work.

These are so soft and make the babies look so special.  Thank you for making caps for our newest Texans.  Here are some patterns - both to knit and crochet, whichever you prefer.
