Need a NURSING MOM shawl/wrap pattern!
Hi,
I know there was a request for a wrap pattern also today and I did bookmark a few of them...BUT, I wonder if any of you out there have knit a shawl or wrap specifically for a nursing mom recently.
My DDin law is due to deliver our new grandaughter in December and I want to make her one. I need to get started on it asap!!
Thanks from
Jen the grandma who is on!

P.S. I forgot to say they live in southern California, so it needs to be on the light weight side.

ummmmmm, what makes a shawl a "Nursing Mom" shawl? I would think you could just take a pattern you like and make it in a yarn that suits?

Probably needs to be fairly long...I had a GREAT poncho I used while I was nursing my youngest daughter and it was super light, I bought it at Gap.I'll take a picture and post it.

I just thought maybe some mom's who are nursing might have a better idea as to what type of shawl/wrap they might like ie: yarn, pattern,... Like Laura wrote.."probably should be fairly long".

Just suggestions like that

There is a pattern for one in the book "Natural Knits for Babies and Moms" by Louisa Harding.

I saw one recently, I think at knittingpatterncentral it was denser at the top, where it needs to cover the.... "equipment"... then airier where the baby is so it can breathe..... it was long (the picture is of the mother seated and it went all the way to her lap) and I think it had a crochet edging.

I'm not pregnant or nursing, but I think a wrap designed in a similar fashion would be really nice! I really like the button/adjustable feature!
