Free Crochet Patterns for Preemie Babies

Updated on March 2, 2017

I've been crocheting since I was a little girl. Since then I've designed for magazines and offer free patterns at my site.

Preemie baby clothing can be hard to find. Offered here are crochet patterns for almost everything you will need. Most of the free patterns use just scraps of yarn, so you can use up your stash or buy a skein and make several.

Caron Simply Soft yarn is used in many of the projects, because it is so soft. It is important to use a soft yarn for a preemie baby's delicate skin.

Ashlynn Kay was just a day or two old in the photo. She was a 5 pound baby and had to wear preemie clothes at first.

If you have the time, crochet a few extras for charity. Many of these mother's have the baby's earlier than expected and aren't prepared. They've also quite often purchase newborn baby clothing and didn't realize how tiny there baby might be.

This page offers a hooded poncho with pants with feet designed by SLK Designs. Sizes are included for a small preemie, large preemie and newborn. This is an especially nice free pattern.

Bev from Bev's Country Crafts called these thumb booties because they were the size of her thumb and she says that they are just the right size for preemies. She used Simply Soft yarn and a size H hook. To make smaller booties, she suggest using baby or baby sports weight yarn.

The preemie button down boy's sweater pattern is offered by Cats Rockin Crochet Fibre Artist. The sweater is sized for a tiny preemie that weighs 1, 2, or 3 pounds. 4-ply yarn is used in the project.

The bootie pattern is brought to you by Deb's Crafts. She used baby sports weight yarn and a size F hook. The booties are 2" long, but can be changed by using a different weight yarn or hook.

This pretty bonnet is from the Dearest Debi website. Bernat Baby Coordinate yarn was used in the project. A 4.5mm hook was used.

The preemie gown is offered as a free pattern by Crochet n More. It is designed with Bernat Baby Sparkle yarn and a size G crochet hook. The pattern is rated at an Easy/Medium difficultly level.

This pattern is for a super easy tank top offered by Auroral Crochet. The top will fit a 3-5 pound preemie. You'll need baby sports weight yarn and a size F crochet hook to complete the project.

This afghan is designed Baby Bernat Coordinates yarn and sized for a preemie. The pattern is courtesy of Crochet 'n' More.

The free pattern is listed by Craftown. The designer was Judy's Crafty Cove. This is a simple hat that even a beginner should be able to tackle. It is designed using Simply Soft 4-ply yarn and a size F hook.
