My Baby Wrap Pattern

Here is a preview to my next pattern: It is a baby wrap!!!! You can wrap your baby up in this light organic cotton yarn from Bernat and be close to your pride and joy. I couldn't take a photo of the length of the wrap, it was to long. It is the same width the length of the wrap except the ends. Because I live in Florida, I wanted to make the stitches bigger so that air could get through. I am writing the pattern up as I go. If you click on the picture, you can see it better. The color in the photo is tricking my eyes. I have been working on this for quite some time. I can only work on this at work or if Barry is driving. I am making another woven bag similar to my other bag and I can only work on that one at home. So my knitting goes away at home. I will post a photo of my wrap when I am finished, then post a link to get the pattern. I think it would make an awesome baby gift. Moms love these types of baby carriers, slings, or wraps.
I can't believe I haven't posted the pictures of the beautiful yarn Cindy gave me. This ball here comes from Indiana. I love the rich deep colors. I can't wait to make a pair of socks with it.

This next ball is so soft and yummy. It comes from the beautiful country of Greece. This yarn is from Cindy as well. I think it is a 50 gram ball. I will need some help. I don't know what to make with it. I only have one ball and I want to make many different things with it. Can you suggest anything? What would you make if you could only make one item with this pretty yarn?

Thank you Cindy for the wonderful yarn. I love you and can't wait to see you!!!

Can't wait to see your pattern done! Your new yarn from India looks so cool. I thought about it for a while...if I had one nice skein of really precious yarn I would want to make something that I could look at very often but would be small enough for the one skein. I think I would make a very delicate, 20s inspired hat. It is so beautiful, maybe I would just leave it on the coffee table and look at it a lot:)

How do you wrap a baby?? Need to take a picture with a baby or a doll when you're done... or else I'm just a dumbass. Cause I have no idea and I did have a baby once - can I use it to tie up my teen??

Very nice and I love the yarn. I hope to one day do a pattern that others can actually knit up themselves.

Very cool! I didn't think of knitting one when my kiddos were small enough to need one--had a couple of those Snuggly things that were some sort of a puzzle to put on when it was just you and the babe. Gosh! my youngest is about to turn 19 next month. Hard to believe!
