    HI Kirstyn, I help run a charity which supports St George’s Hospital neonatal unit. I’d love to be able to pass on this pattern to our supporters (who normally knit blankets and ventilator bonnets for our babies) and ask them to knit some of these for us for Christmas. Do you think the pattern designer would mind?
