Free crochet patterns for the Neonatal Unit
Crochet for premature babies
Over many years the staff of The Simpson Neonatal Unit have been very appreciative of the generous and talented individuals who have donated ventilator hats, jackets and blankets for the very smallest and sickest babies in their care.
However, with the onset of the Covid infection, the unit were required to refrain from taking in items as they could not be washed at the high temperature which was implemented by the NHS. It has been unfortunate to have to turn away all the volunteers who have contacted the unit and the SSCB charity who work their magic with yarn and needles.
Hand made crochet for charity
But it is very exciting for us as a charity to announce our free crochet patterns which will be of benefit to the babies and parents in neonatal care.
We have a range of free crochet patterns designed especially for us which will be offered to parents on discharge from the ward and also used in our fundraising campaigns and events.
• Please use new yarn and 100% polyester filling.
• While we appreciate that individuals have different abilities and as these are gifts for babies and families who have gone through so much, we would appreciate a high quality of crochet and sewing up.
• All sewing MUST be fastened securely.
• Please enclose with your package your name, email address and/or home address with the quantity made. This will allow us to contact you with our thanks.
