Baby Wrap to Fit a Man's Wardrobe Weaving Pattern Download
Last year, Carl Friedlander became a grandfather for the first time. At his daughter-in-law's request, he wove a baby wrap carrier, based on her color selections, using plain weave. The bright colors and pattern suited her perfectly. Carl soon knew that he wanted a baby wrap carrier for himself, but with a more masculine appearance.
