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.
The charities involved usually have free knitting patterns and advice on their websites so do not be worried by all the details as you really will be able to find a garment to suit both your knitting skills and the babies needs
DIY: Because there are so many different and unique yarns to knit with, I always enjoy putting together my own original knitting projects. If you visit your local yarn shop aka LYS, you will find so many options for scarf knitting that the ideas will seem never-ending. And that’s a good thing. Because once you’re done with one scarf, you can start another and it will look entirely different. Gone are the days of boring garter stitch scarf looks. Just combine a snazzy yarn in a spectacular color and everyone you know will want one of their own.
With knitting being a very popular hobby in many countries around the world, there is a huge number of retailers all offering various thicknesses of knitting yarn, along with a variety of knitting accessories that are claimed to be more or less essential for various projects.
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.
