Hi All!

I've been looking for a Knitted nursing cover-up pattern. My niece is having twins and she plans on nursing so she is going to need something easy/simple to toss on when she nurses away from home.

Any tips or suggestions, patterns to share would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Wendy

I would think that something like a rectangular stole or shawl would work or even a poncho. Not too lacy for privacy of course. Here's a few ideas.

Custom Knits has poncho thing that buttons down the front and has armholes in it which seams ideal to me. Click on view more images and it's in the second group of pix.

As a Mommy of a new baby I looked into this for myself...

so here are some patterns:

but in my opinion, a baby is too cute to cover!


hope that helps!
