  3. Thank you for this pattern I am knitting things to donate to the hospitals NICU and when I took my first bag of items they were greatful for the donation! I asked them if it was okay to knit more to donate and what they needed to which I was told...little cardigans for them going home, plenty of beanies but no booties because of the equipment that they have going into the little ones! So I am very greatful for the pattern!
