CJKJ, here's a link to a pattern for sizing.  http://knitsforsanity.typepad.com/preemieproject/MeasurementsGuidewithCategoriesNEW.doc

Can you post a link to the website with the patterns you like and we'll see if we can try to figure things out for you?

Thank you!!!

I just updated our resource list with a few more things.

If you come up with any patterns or ideas that you want added, please just drop me a PM.

Thanks!

I just told my friends in the Shop the Swap about this. Thank you elvissatx and sweetnightmare for this opportunity to help people who must be suffering so much over the loss of their little one. 
I am going to be making some bracelets this weekend.

Just wanted to pop in and say I have a small crocheted blanket and matching preemie hat done.   Will be working on more later.

I just finished 2 small hats, working on my third.  I will hopefully post pictures tomorrow after the 3 are done.  

I need to finish up my swaps and then I plan on making more!

I started crying when I read the cause for this craftalong.  My grandmother, mother, and I both have a genetic disorder that, among other things, gives us a 25% likelihood of having a stillborn child.  I have lost two siblings and am slightly terrified to have children of my own as a result.  I'm not sure that I'm emotionally able to help out with this swap, but I'd like very much to thank all you wonderful Craftsters for the work you are doing.  I know first-hand that any small item can be a great help to a grieving family and is something that is held onto... well, forever.

Wombatgal, telling your story is plenty of a contribution for this time out.  Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

Oh, those are very sweet!

Sadly, I have no idea of how to draft the patterns.  But I did put some more patterns up in our resources section that are sized in the same way, so perhaps those could serve as a jumping off point?  Or perhaps someone here is more talented than I am?
