Newborn photography requires delicate pieces which take longer to make but look so cute! This project taught me to slow down and to have patience and trust the process. It’s a good project when you want to slow down. This free knitting pattern is for a newborn wrap that is knitted flat with bobbles along one side and a velvety texture along the top.

For this project, I was able to collaborate with a talented photographer who’s also my friend. Anjum from Once Upon A Lens Photography has gone above and beyond in styling and capturing the detail of the wrap!
