My favourite knitting patterns for babiesWhen it comes to knitting for newborn babies, I don't think that you can go far wrong with a cardigan. A simple little top that you can slip on, is always handy, cardigans, with buttons down the front, are far easier to get onto a tiny baby than a jumper that you slip over the head. They are also ideal in both winter and summer, and always look cute.
I have a basic cardigan pattern, and the Anja knitting pattern to release in the coming months, but in the mean time, the Lena cardigan is a cute option, or the Snowdrop wrap cardigan is another handy pattern.
Baby hat knitting patternSome of my favourite knitting patterns for babies are those for hats, a little woolly hat is always a handy addition to a newborn's wardrobe, and they are usually simple and quick gifts to knit up. One of the most simple is my simple baby hat. It's so simple that it's not really a pattern as such, but it is a good place to start, and works well as a blank canvas for adding your own embellishments.
Something a little different?
Want to knit something a little different as a gift? If the baby in question is going to be in cloth then a soaker pattern might be something to consider. We have a free one on this blog that is fairly easy to knit.
So there you have it, a quick round up of my favourite knitting patterns for babies.
