Lily Pad Photo Prop Knitting Pattern for Newborn Photography

PLEASE NOTE: This is a set of instructions, not the physical object.
Once you have paid, you will receive an email with instructions for downloading your pattern pdf, along with 2 other files:
1) yarn and needle terminology and equivalents
2) newborn photography and digital editing tips

The dark green velvety yarn has been discontinued, but I've included information about how to use either bulky or worsted yarn. And if you really, really want to use this chenille yarn, I stocked up on it when I realized it was not going to be in stores any longer, so I will have the yarn available for a limited time.

Literally THOUSANDS of savvy young photographers have become knitters, or enlisted a friend or relative to venture into this genre. Why not YOU?

"Is this an easy knit?" you ask. Actually, it is! It's a back-and-forth project, not knit in the round.

The pattern does NOT include the flower, nor the hat, diaper cover or turtle back...just the lily pad itself.

I am never far from my computer, so consider me your "Tech Support" when you take on this knitting project. It is not a quick knit, but pretty fun to do, and what a cool prop it makes!

Permission is granted to sell the items you make using this pattern. But the pattern is copyrighted, and distribution of it is not allowed, of course.

Please don't hesitate to message me with any questions you may have about this or any other of my props and patterns.
