Why I knit a lot of preemie caps
Our grandson was a preemie and has just tuned three. All is well and good.

I figured that, after he was born, I owed some thanks to the universe, so I sat down and made a bag of preemie caps. I had fun trying out different designs and patterns.

You know what the nurse said was the best one??

Dull and boring K2, P2 because it would fit so many sizes.

Preemie Hats
Wowsers!

Shandeh

I think you've posted enough links here to keep me going for the next 10 years!

Thanks so much for this post - I'd have spent ages mooching about the net looking for Preemie hats, so you've saved me a huge amount of time; I love the Shadow Stripes hat!

Many Thanks

All Best Wishes

Limey aka Ellie

Your hats are gorgeous.

Thanks for the premie hats links Sandy. I am knitting heaps of premie hats for South African babies. This is wonderful.

Thanks again
