Color Outside the Lines: I remember coloring books, and how careful I was to never get the crayon color outside the area I was coloring in or it would be ruined. Not so with knitting. Especially with scarf knitting. Because of all of the yarn choices we have, putting together beautifully color-crafted scarves is so easy. And so fun.
Bonnie Babies mainly makes blankets for premature babies. They provide patterns for toys, hats, and sweaters (including a ”5 Hour Baby Sweater!”), but blankets are quick, simple to make, and guaranteed to fit. Families can then continue to treasure them long after the child is grown.
Cowls: Now, here is a project that is hotter than hot. Cowls, aka mobius knitting is all the rage right now. And no wonder. These little beauties are attached at their ends when finished and they are also called Infinity scarves. Besides looking just terrific with any wardrobe, cowls are the best warmer-uppers on cold winter days. Easy to knit, they can be finished in a weekend.
Yarn: Premature babies have very delicate skin and can often be allergic to wool; therefore it is best to steer clear of garments made with a wool mix. Acrylic yarn is more appropriate when knitting for preemies. Ideal yarn to use for preemie knits is baby double knit or 4ply yarn. Most preemie patterns will use these.
