I’m sure you know, by now, about my crochet donations to the Valley Children’s NICU. Today, I am sharing the next crochet pattern in the series. This is the first of three crochet Preemie Tiara designs.
This tiny tiara can be worn by a sweet little princess, just as she would wear a headband. It makes an adorable photo prop, too.
The Preemie Tiara is quick and easy to make. It is great for crochet beginners. I think it is safe to say that once you make one, you will want to make more! Hold your hooks, though… okay, at least save some yarn… because in the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing two more tiara designs!
If you aren’t sure about the size you need, you can always print out my Hat and Headband Size Chart, to keep on hand. It includes preemie sizes.
