Knit for Premmie Babies


** In 2016 and so far in 2017, 14 large boxes of knitting have been distributed to nurseries throughout Australia.**

We partnered twice with That’s Life Magazine in support of our annual Wear Green for Premmies event in April 2014 and 2015.

In February 2014 and March 2015, together we launched the ‘Little Darlings’ knitting project for Australian knitters. If you love to knit, Patons have supplied That’s Life readers with a premmie beanie and booties pattern so you can lend a hand.

Over the past four years, we have received well over to 80,000 knitted items since the projects launched and we continue to be overwhelmed with knitted items. We have received over 6,000 packages ranging from satchels, envelopes, boxes and HUGE boxes filled with beanies, booties, jackets, blankets and knitted bears with beautiful heartfelt notes inside. In 2014 and 2015 alone, we delivered 56 packages and over 20 large boxes of knitted items to hospitals throughout Australia for the staff to provide to families with babies currently being looked after in each nursery and still have an abundance of boxes and further knitting to sort through and deliver to further hospitals.

We thank you for the incredible support we have received from the Australian knitting community.
