The NICU also needs hats, booties, and headbands. The average full-term infant needs hats that are 11-15 inches circumference and 5-6 inches from top to brim. Preemie hats of various sizes are also needed. Our goal is to provide 1000 hats and as many booties and headbands as we can collect for the babies at Rush Copley.
The hospital asks that all yarn be SOFT and machine washable/dryable - any fiber type or color is ok if it meets these 2 requirements. Please use your best judgement on yarn choice, for example, make tiny preemie hats out of fingering or baby weight yarn, etc.
