It is time for another Crochet Preemie Challenge! This challenge is a super special one, because it’s a great way to give back while doing something you love! I am so excited to be a participant once again this year with the Camellia Crochet Baby Blanket!


  1. Each day at 8am London time I will update this blog post with that day’s featured pattern.
  2. I will give you the code and links you need. If the designer has a blog I will be direct you there for more information about the pattern, if not you will be taken directly to Ravelry.
  3. You will decide if you would like that pattern.
  4. By accepting the free pdf download you are pledging to donate at least one made item from that pattern to a Preemie charity / organisation / NICU / family of your choosing.
  5. The patterns below will be categorised as the event progresses to make it easier for you to establish which patterns are still available, which are available free on the designers blog, and which are now only paid patterns. The first pattern will be the featured pattern for that day.

This year is going to be a little different as there are 2 ways to take part:

  1. Collect the patterns as they are free pdf downloads with the coupon code.
  2. Buy the bundleALL of the proceeds (minus the PayPal fees, which I dearly wish I could cover), will be going to 2 preemie charities.

Pattern Details:

I designed the Camellia Blanket with the Preemie Challenge in mind. This blanket is a very simple one row repeat with two options for trim, making it gender neutral.

The Camellia crochet baby blanket pattern uses DK (#3) weight yarn. I used Paintbox Simply DK. It is one of my favorite acrylic yarns! It is so soft, machine washable, affordable, and comes in a large variety of colors! The skeins are quite large also, at 302 yards each! I used the colorway Tea Rose (142) for the sample pictured in this post.

Light purple crochet baby blanket, called the Camellia Blanket.

This pattern is rated Easy in pattern difficulty. It is worked in simple rows and uses very basic crochet stitches.
