Pattern Description:

This sweet infant wrap is the perfect all season blanket for that special little someone. I designed it with one side flap longer than the others so it can be wrapped over the top and back underneath the babe to keep it secure.

The Baby Envelope is one of five knitting patterns included in our children's storybook, Freddie's Blanket. Freddie's Blanket is a story about a young platypus named Freddie who lives in Australia. My husband Eric illustrates my stories and I design the knitting patterns to accompany the characters and events from the book. We are published by our indie press, Slate Falls Press, and sell signed copies of our books at our etsy shop.

Joanna Johnson on

I am a children's book writer. My husband Eric illustrates our storybooks, which we publish independently from our home-based studios at the foot of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. We have three children, who offer continual inspiration for our stories. I learned to knit and sew from my mother and grandmother as a girl, and love being able to include knitting and sewing patterns in our storybooks.
