I have been working on some preemie ribbed caps and booties.
I absolutely loved this pattern for the cap http://smiley-netta.blogspot.com/2010/03/ribbed-crochet-preemie-hat.html. The stretch is perfect for preemies. I ended up going a little crazy with it. It is easy to make bigger or smaller by how many stitches you start out with.
Anyway, I decided the cap needed some booties to go with them. I didn’t like any of the patterns I ran across for it because I wanted the same amount of stretch. Plus it looks better when the cap and booties have the same stitch. So I made my own pattern. I used the new Stitch works program I got recently and made a chart. If you want it, let me know. It is a PDF file and I will be happy to share.
