Lewis Jacket - Free crochet pattern


Good afternoon all

It has been a crazy few weeks here in the Mamma household. One that has led to some very tough choices and decisions being made.
Yesterday I announced that I would no longer be selling finished products. For a year now, I have been making and selling photography props and hats. Mainly to help cover the cost of postage for all the preemie items.

This meant I had less and less time to spend actually designing which is what I love to do the most.

So it is a little sad that I wont be running the store anymore, and I really do enjoy making props, but first and foremost is the designing aspect, being able to supply you all with patterns that I know will help families across the globe is more humbling and means much more to me then any amount of sales ever will. I have also been asked a LOT lately for larger sized patterns, and that is again, certainly something I want to play with. I want to remind everyone once again that I am more then happy to take requests for patterns! Just send me an email or leave a comment below and I'll see what I can do.

The Facebook pages will go back to how they originally were, so you can find all pattern and release info at MammaThatMakes on Facebook.

Anyhows! Today's pattern is for a little jacket that will fit 24-26 weeks gestation. It would work for both genders, but I used the blue/orange/brown variegated from Patons Fantasia range, which by the way, feels amazing! Its very simple to make and quite easy to adjust. I am making a second one, with stripes :)
