“Red, White and Blue in the NICU” Donation Drive

We need help for our “4th of July” themed donation!  Items can be knit, crochet or sewn.  Help the babies celebrate the 4th of July in style!  We do ask that all hats have all 3 colors in the hats.  You could have 2 colors in the body of the hat and the 3rd color in a pom-pom or flower.

Please visit our Crafting Guidelines and Measurements Guide for information on yarn, sizes, packaging, etc.

The more donations we receive, the more NICUs we can support!

Hat and Bootie Sets:
20 1-1.5lb
40  2-3lb
90  3-5lb

Be sure to see our Measurements Guide when sizing your hats and booties.

Use any pattern of your choice. Please make sure to include Red, White, and Blue in the body of the hat.  Here are some great basic patterns.
