baby knits

I'm gearing up for a knitting retreat this weekend with four of my most favorite knitting girlfriends. I absolutely cannot wait for a whole weekend of uninterrupted knitting time with them. We always manage to cause a little trouble, but in a good way. To get ready, I've been scouring Ravelry and my pattern books for the perfect projects to work on. I've picked out a hat and mitten pattern that I want to make for myself, a quick cowl pattern for Lo, but I've also been looking for one more baby project to possibly work on. I have managed to crank out one baby sweater for the little dude, and I have a baby hat and mitts set in progress, but not much else. Here are some of my favorite things that I've found so far. (All photos were taken by the pattern designers.)

What are some of your go-to knitting patterns for babies? (And what should I start knitting now?)  :)


  1. Ooh all of these are so cute! But that baby kimono... MAKE THAT! hehe. And a knitting retreat?! JEALOUS. I need some knitting buddies! Mind if I join? haha.

  2. The pea pod is just so adorable! You should make one:)

  3. i love the Aviatrix hat for sure (, Kanoko pants are a must (, the Cabled Baby hat flies off the needles (, and my son LIVES in his Riverstone (!!

  4. I've had yarn for that baby kimono forever. I never did make it for my own girlie or for any friends. I looooove it so though and I would love to live vicariously through your project! ;) I like the pea pod too... great for photos.
    Here's my own little go-to baby set.
    I made your Gap-tastic cowl this weekend finally. Love it. Thanks!

  5. awesome suggestions, everyone! keep them coming!

  6. CUTE list! I also love the baby owlet sweater by Kate Davies. I knit it here and also love the toys by Ysolda Teague. See my post for pics :)

  7. also jealous of your knitting retreat.. I need more knitting friends in my life.
