Free Preemie Hat Patterns

I am honored to be participating in the Preemie Crochet Challenge, being hosted by Sunflower Cottage Crochet. Each day there will be a new pattern offered for free. Both of these patterns were designed specifically for this event.

This event means a great deal to me because I developed pre-eclampsia with 2 of my 3 children, which resulted in both of my boys being premature. I hope the the hats made and donated from my patterns will bring a baby and their families some comfort.

On August 22nd you may follow the link and download a free PDF copy of these patterns. Or you can view them for free always on the blog.

PLEASE NOTE THAT BY TAKING THE FREE PDF PATTERN YOU ARE PLEDGING TO DONATE AT LEAST ONE ITEM MADE FROM THAT PATTERN TO A SUITABLE CHARITY / UNIT / FAMILY. WE APPRECIATE YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THIS EVENT.

Now on to the patterns:

  2. The code Preemie2020 doesn’t work for the hats for today. Any suggestions? I’ve tried it for both hats with no luck. Cute hats though!

      Thank you, so much!You have to do the ebook that has both patterns in the file. It won’t work on the hats separately. Let me know if you still have trouble and I’m sure I could email it to you!
