  1. My granddaughter just had her baby at 33 weeks. Lyla was born at 3lbs 7 oz and 17 inches long. She is beautiful. I want to use your pattern to make her a little hat. I do crochet and knit and am looking forward to making my first preemie hat. I am so grateful to you for sharing your talent with me. I hope I will make many more for other babies. Thank you again and I pray that God will continue to use you for us. Thank you again. Betty T.

  2. Hello,
    I’m a beginner in preemie crochet, I decided to help hospitals by making some things for these little babies.
    I searched a good pattern of preemie hat for several days and I found yours yesterday.
    Thank you ! Your pattern is very well explained.
    The gauge and the hat’s measures in cm are really useful to check if this is the good size.
    I love this pattern and the chick hat wich is very funny.

  3. I would like to thank you for the preemie hat pattern wrapped with Love. I crochet and donate
    preemie hats to area hospitals that have NICUS in Louisiana. I like that you have the hats in different sizes.

    I just finished making 40 Santa hats to send to the hospitals. I started making the wrapped with Love hats again to get ready for the need at the hospitals. People love the little hats with the bows.

    Thanks for the free patterns!!!!

    • Hi Louise. It hasn’t been posted yet. I’ve got it written up but it has to be tested first. I’m aiming to have it posted sometime in the next week or so.
