Please join us in knitting preemie hats for the NICU at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor or knit for your local NICU.
This is the pattern we started with, but feel free to make the body of the hat(s) your own or use another pattern of your choice.
We’d like you to use superwash sock yarn (Wool nylon blend or just 100% superwash is great. Please no cashmere, silk etc as some babies have a sensitivity). Please also use only mild, scentless soap (no scented wash like Soak or scented fabric softener, again due to sensitivities).
Each hat uses only 16g or 1/2 oz and about 50 yards.
There will be no prizes for this KAL. We are simply paying it forward and donating hats to a NICU in need.
Mailing address available, just post a comment here on the blog and we’ll reply with our address.
Does your NICU need hats? Feel free to send them to your local NICU if you prefer.
Please download the following labels and write your contact info on a tag for each hat. Card stock works best!
