Day 9 of the 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.

Last year was absolutely fantastic, and the support and pledges from other designers and crocheters within the crochet community was fabulous. We are hoping that 2021 will be no different! Our goal is to surpass the pledge count from last year (which was over 22,000 pledges!) and are aiming for over 30,000 this year!

You can read about why this challenge means so much to us at Sunflower Cottage Crochet HQ here

HOW DOES THE CHALLENGE WORK?

  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.

We have kept a round up of last year’s patterns that were donated to the challenge for your reference. Many of the patterns are still available free on the designers blog and a couple will always be free on Ravelry! You can check out that post here.

Today’s featured pattern – Piper’s Blankie by Juniper and Oakes

piper's blankie

This cozy looking blank uses Bernat Velvet yarn (or any #5 weight yarn), 6mm hook and the moss and shell stitch. I love the overall effect of it. Bernat Velvet is a yarn that I love to touch but rarely work with! Erin named this one after her adorable daughter.
