I am very happy to share my latest pattern for a preemie hat crochet pattern, called after my lovely mother, Marleen.
This pattern will be available for free on Ravelry between 1-8 August 2021, with a coupon that you can find a bit further in this post.
Please go ahead and check the Sunflower Cottage Crochet Facebook group for the Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021 pattern roundup. Every day throughout August a suitable pattern will be shared by a different designer. This can be a hat, bonding square or even blanket.
Please give the pattern a like, by adding to your favorites as a thank you. I would love to see your projects.
Did you know, I also wrote a set of preemie hat patterns last year for the Preemie crochet challenge? They are still available on Ravelry (click here) and on Etsy (click here). All my patterns are written in US English.
The hat was designed for a preemie with head circumference of 10 inch or 25 cm. This would be for 2-4 lbs or 28-32 weeks, approximately.
My hat was made with a 4 mm hook and a bit of DK weight, or #3 yarn.
I only needed 11 grams, so one skein of Stylecraft would be enough for almost 9 or 10 of these. Great for stashing up for charity crochet!
Off course this is an estimated average and you could adjust the size by going up a hook, or using aran weight, to make it a bit bigger. Or go down in hooksize or use a sports weight to make it a bit smaller.
You can get the pattern for the preemie hat Marleen free, between 1-8 August 2021, with coupon MARLEEN on Ravelry here: please enter the coupon and check that the price changes to free before confirming. After 8 August the ad-free PDF pattern can be bought on Ravelry and Etsy
Preemie hats are my way of sending hugs into the world
