PLEASE NOTE: This is a knitting pattern, and not the knitted hammock.

Now you can knit one of these versatile photo props using double strands of yarn and large needles. (The nubby "Pooch" yarn is discontinued, but there is no limit to the wonderful yarn combinations possible.)

You can also wrap the baby in this, like a cocoon, or use it as a stork suspender.

YES! I do knit this item, and it is available for $45.00, plus shipping. Check my "Hand Knits" listings. Many other colors are possible, too. (The nubby textured one is available for $65.00.)

Email me with any questions you may have about this, or about other types of hand knits for newborn photography --

Many thanks to Kim, of FrugalMmmama (who sells hammocks), to Wendy Noble of www.photographybywen.com and to Marija of www.tj-photography.com. Marija said: "Just wanted to let you know that your pattern is really easy to follow. We got to use the hammock at our last baby session. I made a few already." (Received 20 days after buying this pattern!)

The photo with the incredible handmade reborn doll is from Nadine of When Angels Dance Nursery. It is a hammock that she ordered from me.

Please be very cautious when using this and all baby photo props!! Parents are much more cooperative if you will place cushions beneath, and then remove that during final photo editing.
