Knitting Patterns

We are very grateful for any beautiful knitting donated for us to give to bereaved parents for their precious baby. We feel very blessed to have some wonderfully talented knitters who generously donate their time, skill and work so that we may provide these special items for families in need in our local area. The fact that each piece of work is lovingly made by hand is so meaningful to our parents, it communicates that someone is caring, thoughtful and sending them love at such a heartbreaking time. 

If you are reading this because you would like to help us by knitting some items for us, thank you! 

There is a menu of patterns below that can be downloaded or copied for you to follow.

We just request that the items can be White or Cream, to keep them neutral to suit either gender. 

Also can each item be knitted as a matching pair, this is so one set can be used for baby and the other can be kept as a keepsake by their parents. We will wrap each set beautifully to be offered to parents with their Remembrance Box or Miscarriage Care Package.

Please do email us if you would like any further guidance, we would love to hear from you. If you belong to a knitting group who would like to help us we can come along to your group and show you what we do and where your lovely work will be going, we would love to meet you.

Thank you for taking the time to come here and find out about us, love and light, Val x x x

Crib tutorial - please make in white or cream

Tutorial from Crafts and Cats 

Cribs for premature babies that don’t survive

This pattern uses both knitting and crocheting.

Materials

Cardboard or polystyrene for base

Towelling ( I used a £1 hand towel from Wilkinson's, because they are not too thick)

White DK yarn

2.25 crochet hook 2.75mm needles

 

 

Base: cardboard or polystyrene

Cut 1 piece of towelling base size and 2 with a seam allowance’

Stick the single towel to the base (I used double sided tape)

Sew the 2 towelling base covers together

 

 

 

 

Crochet base: Chain 30, 2dc in second chain from hook, 1dc in each chain to end 3dc in last chain, turn and workup the other side of chain, slip stitch into 1stdc

 

 

 

 

1dc in same space, 2dc in next dc, 28dc, 2dc in next dc, 1dc 2dc in next dc, slip stitch to join. Continue in rounds increasing 4 sts each round (or as many as needed to keep it flat) until it is the same size as the base.

 

 

 

 

 

Side: first round 1dc in the back loop of every dc,

Continue dc rounds till work measures 3” from start of side

 

 

 

 

Frill:

3 chain and 1tr 1ch, 2tr . Into front loop of previous row dc, miss 1dc 1slip st into next dc, miss 1dc,* 2tr, 1ch, 2tr* in next dc, (*shell) work shell frill for 2 1/2”

 

 

 

 

 

Using contrast colour work 1 row reverse dc, round the base, in the other loop of the dcs where you started the side.

 

 

 

 

 

Do the same where the frill starts.

 

And round the bottom of the frill

Turn inside out and stitch the base in place

Pillow: (knitted)

DK 2.75mm needles

Cast on 12sts k1 row

K every row increasing 1st at beginning of every row to 32sts

Work 4”

Dec.1st beginning of every row to 12sts cast off.

Cut 3 layers of towelling half the pillow size and lightly tack in place. Fold pillow in half and over sew the edges.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pushing hook through both layers make a row of shell round top edge of pillow

 

 

 

 

 

Cover:

As pillow, but make the straight bit 9” and only use 1 layer of towelling to pad it

Beginner's Stretchy Angel Hat

 

 

The Beginner Stretchy Angel Hat is still fairly simple, but adds ribbing, which makes it a very stretchy hat.  It's worked in 2 x 2 ribbing (knit 2, purl 2) all the way up.  You'll need to know knit, purl, k2tog, p2tog and seaming.
 
Because it's so stretchy, it fits a very wide range of circumferences.  When knit with worsted weight yarn (#4) and size eight needles, this fits approximately 16 - 24 week angels. 

** Repeat the pattern between the stars for the rest of the row

Cast On 37 stitches

Ribbing

Row 1 *Knit 2, Purl 2* Knit 1
