Would like a "stylish" maternity pattern
Hi,
My dd-in law is expecting their first baby this December. They live in Long Beach, CA and is does get cool in the later months of the year, but I thought I would try to knit her something for September/October.
I need a "stylish/cool" pattern. Probably a top of some kind. A dress would take too long and I am going to make her a shawl for when she is nursing. She dresses beautifully and would not want something "frumpy" lol!
Any ideas of something you have made or a link/pattern you have seen?
Thanks in advance!
Jen

Gah! I had an entire post when I accidentally closed the browser!

Anyway...there are a couple books that are worth looking into.
Natural Knits for Babies and Moms
Knitting for Two

I have the Natural knits book and now I'm going to order the Knitting for Two one..Amazon has one for 8.00!
I know how you feel when you write a whole e-mail and it disappears!
Thanks again!

Thank you! I know she would love the rosebud pattern. The before and after sweater is beautiful, but too warm for her in sunny CA!
Thanks!

I agree
I vote for the book "Natural Knits for Baby and MOm" as Jan posted. I have that book and the sweaters in it are just beauitful for baby and the mom. They can be used after her pregnancy is over too. Check it out.
