What Is a Mommy and Me Knit or Crochet Pattern?

All of these patterns have sizes that fit an adult woman and a child! Some of the sizes are within the same pattern, while a few have separate patterns for the coordinating pieces. The idea of a mommy and me pattern is that “mom” can wear one size and the child or children can wear a piece that matches. Use the same colors for an extra-matching look!

Mommy and me knit and crochet patterns make the child feel special. They get to dress up like Mom. If you gift them to someone, you celebrate their bond. And you can think outside of the box when it comes to who is “mommy” and “child.” For example, make a mommy pattern for grandma and matching child patterns as your Mother’s Day gift to your own mom. These sets also make great charity donations to places such as domestic violence shelters.
