What you need to know

Knit a sweet mini cardigan and hat set for a premature baby

We adore knitting for babies and this preemie-sized set from designer Áine Marriott might just be our new favourite project. The tiny cardigan and hat are knitted in super-soft organic cotton, which is perfect for delicate skin and can be easily washed and re-worn. Look out for our second colour option with a slightly different pattern and if you’re knitting them to donate, be sure to check with your local maternity services about their individual requirements.

Don't forget to save your PDFs to your computer or tablet device as soon as it has been downloaded.
