Very cute. Have lots of yarn left from my last ripple. I should make a bunch of Premmies to donate. Thanks so much for the great idea.

Garden Bell,
That would be fantastic what a great way to use up left over yarn and bring comfort to preemies and parents alike :-)
Here's hoping that lot's of 'special' blankets are being made.

Thank you so much for the pattern...the local neonatal ICU unit takes donations of preemie blankets, and I'm always looking for new patterns!
