Special Baby Care Unit Knitting Patterns
This section is for free knitting patterns for those who knit for their local baby units, and for those who knit for baby loss charities.
Even though these patterns are free, copyright rules still apply. Whilst I am happy for items made from my patterns to be sold, items from this pattern are NOT to be sold. These patterns are supplied on the condition that items made from them are given to neo-natal units and/or the various premature and baby loss charities that help families at their most distressing time.
More patterns will be added soon.
Knitting Pattern for a babies burial gown from 20-26 week gestation.
This pattern isn't a particularly quick knit, but with a thicker skirt area, worked in a cable pattern, it does provide privacy for the babies, and still makes for a pretty and practical outfit. The gown fully opens out, so baby is easy to dress.
