The Jovial Washcloth will make a great addition to a gift basket with locally made cold-processed soaps too.

Newborn Preemie Blanket

The Newborn Preemie Blanket is my first blanket pattern release. In my head blankets are always such a huge undertaking. I wanted to start with something small.

You could probably complete this blanket in just a few days. The Newborn Preemie Blanket is made up of easy row repeats too! Using only 600 yards, this is probably one of my smallest projects too.

Sunflower Cottage Crochet Preemie Crochet Challenge

For the month of August 2021 Sunflower Cottage Crochet is hosting their Preemie Crochet Challenge.

For each pattern that you download for free for the event you are pledging to donate at least one of each of those finished items to a local organization for preemie babies. It could be your local hospital’s NICU department, local family in need, or an organization who specializes in premature babies.

Many families have been touched with the complications of premature birth. Both the mother and baby can have lasting effects of prematurity.

My Preemie Story

My younger brother was born 8 weeks premature. I was still too young to remember but my mother has told me a few times that she wasn’t leaving the hospital to come home until her baby was coming home with her.

Luckily we are part of really supportive families and my parents had help when my mom was tending to my brother.

If you saw my brother today you wouldn’t even know that he was a preemie baby. He’s now a grown man who is a big softy for his older sister (me), he can be an jerk 95% of the time but he’s my lovable brother.
