Good morning lovlies!
Today I have a simple and fun preemie pattern for you. This works just great for boys or girls and is a great way to use up leftover lengths of ribbon. Made as instructed it will fit a baby at 30-32 weeks gestation.
Starting chain does not count as a stitch.
You will need:
dk weight yarn
Small length of ribbon (12-15 inches depending on if you wish to bow it or not)
Optional: A button.
R1: ch3, dc 10 times into the first chain, join.
R2: ch3, dc twice in each stitch around, join.
R3: ch3, dc in each stitch around, join.
R4: ch3, dc twice in each stitch around, join.
R5-7: ch3, dc in each stitch around, join.
R8: ch3, dc in the same stitch, *skip one stitch, ch1, dc in the next stitch* repeat around, join.
R9: ch2, hdc in each stitch and ch1 space around, join.
R10: ch2, hdc in each stitch around, join.
Weave your ribbon in and out of the spaces from R8. You can tie in a bow, or sew a button over the join.
If you have thinner ribbon, replace R8 with hdc's instead of dc's (and add an extra hdc round to the end). If you have thicker ribbon, use triple crochets on R8, and change the last hdc round to a sc round.
