Knots of Love NICU Blanket Patterns

Knots of Love donates snuggly, soft blankets to Neonatal Intensive Care Units across the country. These hand-made gifts serve as a sign that each baby is loved and in the thoughts of caring people across the country. From our efforts to provide comfort to patients experiencing traumatic hair loss, grew our desire to alsocomfort both babies who are ill and their devoted parents.

How we make a difference

By adding color and warmth to an often stark Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Parents sleep with the blankets before placing them on these precious new lives.By providing comfort to parents with babies in life-altering situations, often for months at a time. Our blankets help make the experience a little less “clinical.”By providing a gift to cherish in the future. These treasures become a keepsake after the child is well and are sometimes put on display in shadow boxes or placed in a memory box.

How you can help

Knit or crochet a blanket made from any soft cozy yarn. Use any pattern that is not lacy.
Due to safety concerns with holes in the blankets and little fingers getting caught, we will no longer give them to the parents.
Blankets should be approximately 18” x 24”. Fill out the form below and send in with your blankets.
