This Angel's Pocket is knit in 4 sizes. It is used on the labour suites for tiny babies who do not make it. Some of these babies are very small and / or fragile, so these little wraps are used.
Please use wool no thicker than 4 ply in white or any pastel colour. 3 or even 2 ply is fine especially for the smaller ones. Use the larger sizes and adjust needles to suit. They will of course come out smaller.
Thank you to Jackie who sent us the pattern and also all the sample pockets.
