Red Heart Hats For Valentine’s Day 2021

The Preemie Project would like to donate red hats to Iowa NICUs for Valentine’s Day 2021. We need your help.

  • Patterns with heart themes are great for this donation
  • A red hat with a heart button or crochet heart would be very nice
  • A solid red hat is very acceptable for Valentine’s day.
  • Please make sure your hat can easily be stretched over the tiny heads.
  • Please be sure booties and hat are in the same size range
  • Acrylic yarn works best for baby hats.  Please NO WOOL!

As always our Crafting Guidelines and Measurements Guide apply.

You can use any pattern you prefer but here are a few very nice pattern suggestions:

Snowfall Hats – Crochet

Heart Hat: You Are So Loved – Knit

Baby Hearts Hat – Knit

Red Hats for Preemies by Hands Occupied – Knit

Heart Applique Hat by Hands Occupied – crochet (note: do NOT use Red Heart Super Save like in the pattern)

We are hoping to bring this donation to as many NICUs as possible.  The more items we receive, the more hospitals we can support!

Hat and Bootie Sets:
1-1.5lb   30 sets
2-3lb     45 sets
3-5lb     100 sets
6-8lb     100 sets
