The Preemie Baby Sweater Continued...

If you remember, a few weeks ago, I knit this little preemie sweater for my friend's new little baby.



I had to knit something really fast, and so designed this little sweater. I loved it so much I decided to work on the design to make it into a pattern with a range of sizes from premie to 18 months.

I have been reworking the design, and am now in the final stages of testing the pattern.

Next come the photos and then I should be ready.

I will be offering this pattern for $5 as a downloadable product and I will be donating $3 for every pattern sold to the March of Dimes Foundation, an organization which supports research and programs that help babies begin healthy lives.

That's it for tonight.
Back to work...

What a good (and generous) idea. The sweater is lovely and the fact that it will come in bigger sizes makes it even more appealing.

It's beautiful and the donation of profits is inspired. I will definitely be buying this pattern. Thanks for having a big heart!

I can't wait for the pattern! Thank you. The March of Dimes is a great organization.

Hi, I was wondering whether you would allow a knitter starting a home-based part-time knitting business to use your free patterns to knit some of her items. She would be selling the finished product in local craft or gift shops. Thanks!

Are you OK? I miss your blogs.
Just checking, as you have provided my granddaughter with a great AG Doll sweater.
Thanks so much!
