Looking for Knitting Patterns for Premature Babies?
Lovely Premature Baby
Knitting Patterns

Fits perfectly to a 16" - 18" (43 cm - 48 cm) premature baby

When I get question from people who are looking for premature baby knitting patterns to knit for an early baby, often they don't know what they are looking for. Usually they want to know whether the clothes I knit for the doll Baby born also is suited to knit as garments for the tiny premature child. It turns out that several people are already using my patterns to clothing for premature babies. Feedback confirms that the clothes have a good width in arms and legs, few stitches, and they are easy to get on and off ... which is very important!

Recently I visited a yarn store in my neighborhood. All over the wall hung tiny knitted “baby clothes” that were sold to premature children. When I looked closer all the clothes were knitted with my doll knitting patterns, quite a pleasant surprise. It was very nice to see that my patterns can be used to meet this need.

To make it easier for you I have picked a special collection that fit to early babies, easy to knit and quite suitable for this purpose!

Tiny Lauren in a big, big world
Donna sent me this picture, here is what she says: This is a picture of baby Lauren in the 0050D Mathea premie sweater. I made the sweater for a co-worker who recently had a premie baby in the family. This was the only sweater that fit him as he came home from the hospital weighing about 4 and a half pounds. I have to admit he is much more precious than the dolls that I usually knit for. I love your patterns"
A high five to both Donna and Lauren, and we all wish him a great future.

Size The size of premature babies vary a lot, the chest measurement vary from 8" to 14". So you should not try to put too much on trying to perfect the size of the clothing. Tension (Gauge): 10 cm = about 30 m. Then I knit with needles No 2 1/2 . If your little premature child needs smaller or larger clothes, use some more or fewer stitches and also knit a few rounds to get shorter.
The knitting patterns on this page fit to dolls with 11" chest circumference, exactly what you need to knit cloths for preemies.The measurement of premature babies is mostly from 40 cm to 50 cm. The premature baby knitting patterns on this page are designed to fit 18" dolls, like 45 cm Baby born and 48 cm American Girl

Yarn A premature baby has very delicate skin. I mostly knit my models in thin, soft merino wool yarn. This is soft, warm and good to the little one.
If you want you can also knit garments in soft baby alpaca wool, which is even warmer. Just make sure the yarn has the same gauge as baby wool.
Sometimes premature babies are allergic to wool, if so clear of using wool mix. You can use cotton and acrylic yarn. 100% Egyptian cotton is very soft, a fantastic soft yarn for delicate skin, warm when it is cold and cool when it is warm.

Blankets Blankets is popular and very useful for premature babies. A blanket is easy to knit too, you can do it when watching TV.

Colors Pastel colors fits well to this. Of course baby pink and blue are popular, but don't forget the beautiful Peach, Cream, Lemon, Aqua, Lilac, Mint Green ... and of course White. Bright and dark colors make premature babies look frailer and should be avoided. When knitting burial garments use colors as cream or white, lilac, blue and pink are not appropriate for a stillborn baby.
