Zoo Babies

Our next hat collection is starting, and the goal is to raise 500 animal hats! I CANNOT wait to start finding these in my mailbox! I am even more excited to be able to bring them up to the NICU at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital!

I had been hoping to post patterns and links to patterns written by myself and others, and I am so thankful for those who have designed patterns for this next collection! You are such a blessing to this project and to all of those families who will receive our hats. You can find our list of patterns below. PLEASE keep checking back, because I am hoping to add more as designers get back to me.

I think it would be awesome if we shared with everyone what has been made.  You can either post it to the Rosie's Cozies Facebook Page, OR use #rosiescozies for Instagram or Twitter.

I would like to have all hats to be sent in by March 23rd (or so). This will give me time to deliver them by Easter and bless all those babes with some cute little hats :-)  Hats being sent to me can be mailed to the address below, or I TOTALLY understand if you want to send them to your own local NICU:
Rosie's Cozies
6026 Kalamazoo Ave SE #119
Kentwood, MI 49508

Thank you again to all of our designers, as well as those of you who plan on making hats.   I know that they will be a huge blessing to the families who receive them.  I think I am most excited about this collection than any other that we have done so far!  

One quick reminder!  The hat patterns below are written for preemie size.  Do not be afraid to go up a hook or down a hook to make hats in all different sizes.  The NICU needs hats for babies as small as 1lb and as large as 10+lbs.  Babies grow quickly, and as they get bigger they will need larger hats.  

Okay, get those hooks ready, because I know you are going to want to make at least one of each of the adorable hats below!

Deanna from Dandy Mountain Boutique created the following hats.  She does not have a blog, but be sure to show her some love at her Facebook page.  Below you can find the links to the pdfs:

Below are the hats I already hast listed elsewhere on this blog.


Pin It!


  1. I LOVE your 18-20 week old patterns. I have been working on that age range. My daughter was still born at 20weeks and NOTHING fit her. I have been working on making hats that gestation to donate in her name as well.

  2. I wanted to mail my hats Tuesday, but time got away from me. I have 20 hats to send. Most of them are animals, but a few girl hats have only flowers. I hope you get lots of hats mailed in over the next few days/week.
