Preemie Baby Sweater & Hat


I have to show you what I just finished. This is a crocheted, preemie baby sweater and hat in a variegated pink yarn with sparkle. The width from underarm to underarm is 6". The hat at it's widest is 4 1/2". This was a new pattern for me, but similar to some I'd done before, so it took me an evening, plus a few hours to make both pieces. I'm planning to send this to friends who had a preemie girl named Ruth on April 14th. She was only 2# 12 oz. Now she's about 5# and will probably be going home soon.

Very sweet baby set. You did a wonderful job on it...soooooo cute. I use to be an avid crocheter and made so many baby outfits and booties during that time.
