7 Free Crochet Preemie Blanket Patterns

Discover beautiful NICU crochet blanket patterns in this collection.

7 Free Crochet Preemie Blanket Patterns

These sweet free crochet preemie blanket patterns come in a variety of small sizes for premature babies born very early or just a little early.

To get started, you need to know that the standard preemie crochet blanket size is approximately 24"x24". However, this can vary depending on how early the baby was born. One crocheter said she made 16"x16" blankets for her preemie twins which worked out well for her. Others say 18"x18", and you can do rectangles as well of say 24"x36". You also might want to consider making the blanket a bit bigger anyway since preemies grow so fast!

Bev's Country Cottage is a wonderful resource for sizes. Here is what she suggests:

  • Micro Preemie: 12"-14" square (30.5 cm - 35.5 cm)
  • Small Preemie: 18"-20" square (45 cm - 50 cm)
  • Medium Preemie: 20"-22" square (50 cm - 56 cm)
  • Large Preemie: 22"-30" square (55 cm - 75 cm)
  • Full Term Baby: 32"-36" square (80-90 cm)

If you find another crochet baby blanket on AllFreeCrochet that you love, you can always work it up a bit smaller to give to the preemie baby in your life. In the meantime, here are some of our favorite preemie blanket crochet patterns!
