Thanksgiving in the NICU

We would LOVE to be able to give special hats and booties to Iowa NICUs for Thanksgiving this year.  We are thinking about Pumpkins and Turkeys and Pilgrims. What have we missed?

Here are some suggested patterns:

Seamless Hat Preemie and Newborn Pumpkin Hat by CareWear Patterns
Pumpkin Hat and Bootie set – knit
Newborn Pumpkin Hat – crochet
Pumpkin Bootie – crochet
Turkey Hat– crochet (no need to make the earflaps)
Turkey Hat – Knit
Turkey Hat – Knit
Pilgrim Hat – crochet

We’ve also created a Pinterest Board to gather inspiration.

As always our Crafting Guidelines and Measurements Guide apply.


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   20 sets
2-3lb     45 sets
3-5lb     100 sets
6-8lb     100 sets
9-11lb   35 sets


Mail or drop donations off at the following address by Saturday, November 7th, 2020

Mail Items to:
The Preemie Project
2607 Flagstone Court
Coralville, IA 52241

This donation will be made to the hospitals we support on or around Friday, November 21, 2020.
Happy Crafting!
