Premmie Baby Items

My friend’s grandson made his appearance into this world at just 34 weeks – a little bit too early! He weighed around 4lb and so needed some very tiny baby items. I wanted to make my friend a gift for her grandson, but got a bit excited and made quite a few bits!

The blue hat in the middle my friend ordered; the rest of this bundle was a gift.


Octopus


Check out this little fellow! I had seen lots of articles on Facebook saying how these little octopuses were great for prem babies, so I just had to make one! I found the Octapus for a Preemie UK Facebook page and used one of their patterns. Go visit their page to find out more!

Hats & Cardigans


I wasn’t really sure what colours to do, so I went simple and cheerful! I love that yellow 😍

There are lots of hat patterns on the internet that can be used and I found this site helpful.

These hats are so small! Look at this comparison: the blue is a preemie hat and the green is a newborn hat


For the cardigans I used this pattern, which I have made before, from Marianna Lazy Daisy Days.


Aren’t they adorable? Again, very small, but perfect for keeping a little body warm.

All these items are made using Stylecraft Special yarn. The Octopus is in 4ply and I used a 2mm hook – it is very small! The rest was DK yarn and a 4mm hook.

I am pleased to say that Baby is fine! Mum and Baby have been home for a couple of weeks and both are doing really well!

As always, these items can be ordered, and for prem items I do express orders as I understand you need them quickly! Visit either my Etsy page or my Facebook page, and send me a message!
