New Preemie Patterns


I recently added a few preemie patterns to my Etsy and Craftsy stores.




This preemie dress is made with light worsted baby yarn and size F hook. It’s very easy and quick to make, and only basic stitches (dc, sc, sl st, ch) were used in this pattern. The dress is quite small; it will also fit a 20-inch doll.



The preemie hats are made with cluster stitch. Again they are made with light worsted baby yarn and size F hook. The measurements are about 11 inches in circumference and 4 inches in height.
A similar pattern in size 3-6 months is also available in my shops.




And the last pattern is a super easy to make diaper cover. It’s made with very soft cotton yarn and size H hook.





Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the Holiday Season!
