Crochet preemie caps and blankets. Video by bobwilson123 (Clare) in support of a friend. Examples and advice given on how to make beanies and blankets for donation to hospitals for tiny infants in NICU, or for burial or memory boxes. The caps should be made from a thin, soft yarn with limited fuzz, just look in the baby section, and should be small enough to fit the size of a lemon and have the ability to stretch well. Contact your local hospital for their specific needs.
