Premature Baby Jackets

I enjoyed making these cute little premature baby jackets.

Mayflower's Sunday Best Jacket
the pattern can be found on the Loving Hands website

This version is my own adaptation ..... I wanted to keep the original design but alter it a little. I get bored if I knit the same thing over and over !



I have knitted and donated loads of premature baby items over the past couple of years.
Today I joined in with a new group ~ Guardian Grandmas. I am not a Grandma but that's OK ...... honorary Grandmas are allowed !!!
  'The guardian grandmas' are a group of caring ladies who crochet hats, blankies and cocoons for babies. 
Both preemie and regular sized baby items are accepted.

August is almost over already. Two thirds of the year is already gone.
And I have so many projects still at the planning stage.
There are just not enough crafting hours in the day .........
I was featured at ~


  1. Marianne as always I love your patterns and have done a few as they are so easy to follow and turn out lovely, this is another brilliant one, Im being really cheeky can I ask for the pattern? xx

    1. Thank you Jacqueline. I am happy that you like my little preemie jackets.
      The instructions for Mayflower's Jacket is on the LH website in the pattern collection. I haven't written down the pattern instructions for my design alteration. I just made it up as I went along! As soon as I get them written down I will let you know. Best wishes. M

    2. Thank you Marianne, I going to hop over and try one of Mayflowers too xx

  2. These are adorable. I am going to send somethings to Debi also! I love to knit and crochet for preemies and newborns. Hope you enter the giveawawy on my blog!

  3. You are right there Marianna it's awful when you have to do stuff that takes you away from crafting like work and housework haha. Glad you joined Debi's group, I love those little jackets Mayflowers patterns are just right for preemie's, I'm knitting the little cardigan one right now.
