Ariel Cardi - Free Micro Preemie Crochet Pattern

Good afternoon lovlies,

This weeks pattern comes as a request from the CCP crafters group. It is a very small and dainty jacket/cardi for 16-18 weeks. I will have a hat and booties up to match it in the future. I know bubba's of this size more often then not don't wear clothing and instead use wraps/cocoons ect, but it is incredibly important that there IS clothing options available for those who do need them, and as it stands now, there is such a lack of items to fit the 16-20 week range. Hopefully I can bridge that gap some with a few items for people to make and donate.

As always, if you have suggestions or ideas for Preemie pattens please do ask. If it is something I am capable of making, I will try my best.

2.00mm hook
Fingering / 4 ply (I used Moda Vera Gelato)

1: chain 31, hdc in the second chain from hook and each across (30)

2: ch2, turn, 2dc in the first stitch, dc in the next stitch, repeat across. (45)

3: ch2, turn, 2hdc in the first stitch, hdc in the next 2 stitches, repeat across (60)

4: ch2, turn, dc in the first 13 stitches, ch5, skip 8, dc in the next 18 stitches, ch5, skip 8, dc in the last 13 stitches. (44dc's, 10ch's)

5: ch2, turn, dc in each stitch and chain across (54)

6-11: ch2, turn, dc in each stitch across

End off and weave in tails.

1: Join yarn to one of the chain stitches on the arm hole (will be the underarm section) and ch2, dc evenly around the armhole 19 times, join. (19)

2-3: ch2, dc in each stitch around, join. (19)

4: ch2, dc2tg, dc in the remaining 17 stitches, join. (18)

5: ch2, dc in each stitch around, join. (18)

Add a button and weave in all ends and you are done!

  2. Ive started making some preemie clothes to donate to the hospital and chose this one for a cardigan. It was a joy to make and I'd like to thank you for sharing it. :)
