Crochet for tiny babies

Preemie babies need hats to help them regulate their temperature, and your local maternity unit might well be glad of a stash of these to keep their supplies topped up. Don't forget, you can make blankets too - and it's important to ensure that the yarn you use is either acrylic or cotton to keep things hypoallergenic and washable.
