This great preemie beanie is loved among NICU nurses and new parents alike. The generous brim and elastic nature of the hat allows it to grow with rapidly growing preemies.

This pattern is available for free because I believe that preemies are one of the most knit worthy little people.

Looking for a place to donate these? On Long Island we are gathering them for the Long Island Yarn Crawl April 7-10. Bring them to Altman’s Needle Arts in Mattituck and you will be entered to win a very special raffle !
