Sunshine Baby Hat for Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021

Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021

Helen Wilkinson from Sunflower Cottage Crochet is hosting her Preemie Crochet Challenge again this year. Each day a new baby crochet pattern by an indie designer will be featured. For each pattern you download, we are asking for one item to be donated to a charity for preemies or hospital of your choice. I am honored to have one of my designs selected as the featured pattern today.


  1. Each day at 8am London time, the blog post will be updated with that day’s featured pattern.
  2. I will give you the code and links you need. If the designer has a blog, you will be directed there for more information about the pattern; if not you will be taken directly to Ravelry.
  3. You will decide if you would like that pattern.
  4. By accepting the free PDF download, you are pledging to donate at least one made item from that pattern to a Preemie charity/organization/NICU/family of your choosing.
  5. The patterns below will be categorized as the event progresses to make it easier for you to establish which patterns are still available, which are available free on the designers blog, and which are now only paid patterns. The first pattern will be the featured pattern for that day.
