Butterfly Pocket Free Pattern.

Good morning everyone, I hope that you have sunshine wherever you are

Three Butterfly Pockets

I must warn you that this is a sad post, so you need to choose whether or not to read on.

Today I want to talk about a non profit organisation, run by Lucy of @uponbutterflywings (I have done a previous post here where I designed a tiny baby hat.)

Lucy donates keepsakes and garments to hospitals and funeral directors, etc, for babies born sleeping (8-34 weeks.) This is something which is very close to my heart and I wanted to create something myself.

The first pattern I designed was the baby hat, and this one is a little pocket cocoon.  I have called it the Butterfly Pocket For Preemies, and you can find it on both Ravelry and LoveCrochet.com (Just click on either of the links and you’ll be taken right to the pattern.)

Of course, the pattern is FREE and you are welcome to download it and use it as you wish.

But I would really love if you could create and donate to Lucy at Upon Butterfly Wings.  This type of item is on her list of what is most needed.  The pockets take less than two hours to do, and use around 50 grams of yarn.

I made three in one afternoon/evening, and I have half a ball of each yarn still left too.

There are lots of links for sizes and preferable colours, as well as other patterns on the Upon Butterfly Wings website.
