Casting on Love is my personal charity group which I have had for a number of years.
I have now decided to use the power of blogging to gather more friends to participate.
Casting on Love is designed to use our talents of knitting, crochet or quilting. With them we can meet 3 basic needs common to both humans and animals.

Comfort, security, & warmth.

~Preemie Patches~

 Instructions & Variations

1)  Kknit or crochet either 16 - 3 inch blocks for one blanket. You may connect the blocks and finish the     blanket off, or just send the loose blocks and we will stitch them together and finish it off for you.

2)  One piece complete 12 inch block.
I do request that if you choose to make the preemie 12 inch block to please finish it out with a nice edging.

3) Please use very soft baby yarn for their sensitive skin.  Color choice is your own

4) Place your lovely items in your shipping envelope and please write "Preemie Patches" on the bottom left hand side of the envelope for easy sorting.

Easy Peasy!!

This will all fit easily into a USPS priority mail envelope. When you are all ready to mail your package, send me an email to and I will send you our address.

Here is a photo of the flat rate envelope and two sizes in boxes.  These all ship for $4.95 no matter how much it weighs.  "If it fits, it ships!"  and these work perfectly for our purposes.

So lets get those needles clickety-clacking for love!
