Linda from 'Chalky's World' Blog started the 'Rainbows Project' off to a flying start with this delightful bundle of many hats, cardigans and 'Angel Pockets'. Linda is one of the most prolific 'Charity Crafters' I have come across. She is always on the make for a wide variety of worthy causes. xxx
I am hoping this page will grow with links to patterns and example of preemie knits/crochet garments.
All help gratefully received thank you.

This site has many patterns for different garments in different sizes both knitting and crochet. This site also reminds us to knit for 'Angel Babies' who sadly do not survive. There is always a demand for burial garments. xxx
