Hi everyone

I'm looking for a pattern for a sleeveless body warmer for a prem baby only 2lb 2ozs and in IC at the moment with tubes and needles in all directions. Bless her heart, I'm trying to get some little bits done for her over the weekend and have a number of patterns all ready printed off Ravelry website but was hoping to find a sleeveless jacket to allow for the tubes etc, preferably one knit in one piece or with just 2 seams at shoulders.

I do have a couple but thought would ask in case you have anything else I haven't found yet.

Jasmines Mummy is a friend of my daughter and she is really worrying about her so I thought this little offering might help for when she visits next week.

Thanks for anything you could suggest.

Maura.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

What happened? I posted a reply and it just disappeared into the ether!

'Nother try.

I knitted a couple of wrappers as per the link I am about to put, for the early-and-small twins of my neighbours. They said they worked very well, and the Special Care Baby Unit nurses were very taken with them - they are flat and unseamed, so are wrapped around the infant, rather than having to be manoeuvred over a head (or tubes), and then fastened with a couple of buttons.

The only trouble is that the pattern is only available in the magazine of the Ashford Society of NZ, but they were very quick to get it to me when I e-mailed them.

This one is not as stylish as Jean's (which I think is wonderful) but it might but you won't have to wait for it to arrive.

There are other links at the bottom of the page.  Good luck with it.

Jean thanks so much that is beautiful and I will email them straight away.

Hattie - that is the one I have and I started it last night, thanks for looking for me though I really appreciate you taking the time.

I should have posted the patterns I found in my opening post - sorry I did mean to, but here they are now (just in case anyone else will need them).

Sorry, nothing of value to add, just want to send good wishes to little Jasmine and her mum. My little girl had to wear dolls clothes - even when she came home she was wearing Dollycare clothes. I would have loved to have had something special for her so I know your efforts will bring a little happiness during this very worrying time.

Never assume anything - except an occasional air of intelligence.

That's so nice of you, thanks very much. I don't actually know the little baby or her Mummy that well, but my daughter is a friend of hers and was so upset that I thought it might be nice if she had something useful to take in to her.

Thanks again for your kind wishes - makes me realise how lucky I was having 2 healthy babies.

Try patterns for baby dolls. When clothes for prem babies were first allowed by special care units they used dolls' clothes, but doll's clothes you buy don't stand up to washing.
